Git 'R Done Wednesday with a another challenge!

Its me again with another Git R Done Wednesday post. This double pager is another layout completed towards the 10 total I need to do to be entered into the drawing at Personalscrapper to win that Slice! 2 down, 8 to go! LOL! This challenge was to be a page or pages about one of your greatest achievements. I decided to feature my college graduation from physical therapy school. I used the May 2008 Personalscrapper kit featuring papers by Chatterbox. I like the simplicity of it. I was able to capture a few funny stories from my 2yrs in physical therapy school in my journaling. I am glad I was able to put them to paper now, as I'm not getting any younger and it seems like when I first started my journaling I couldn't think of one thing to say, then I remembered a funny story about how I was practicing a specific technique on my Aunt (who had graciously volunteered to be my "patient") that was to help reduce pain in the shoulder and guess what? Instead of making her shoulder (which wasn't really injured to begin with) feel better I made it actually hurt for instead of helping her I made her worse YIKES! We still get a good laugh out of that so many years later and once I put that story to paper I started remembering so many many more that I had to create TWO journaling spots on my layout to fit them all in. Needless to say, all the schooling did actually pay off, I am not making my patients worse any more but I do tend to help them not hurt them now! LOL! I think it is a good thing to take a little time and complete some pages about yourself for a change, your kids will appreciate it. I think they are more interested in their parents and their younger years then they are about themselves, after all they lived through their experiences but weren't around for many of your experiences prior to their birth. Even if I don't win that Slice I am so glad I have started doing these challenges about myself. Its actually more fun then I thought it would be! And another tidbit of info, these photos which I had in a shoebox were actually starting to fade, and they are only from 1992, so I am glad I was able to get them stored safely now before they got too much older.


  1. LOVED this page! I also enjoyed hearing about the "torture" you put your poor aunt through! Glad you don't do that to your patients. :)

    Good luck in the contest!

  2. Lovely Lisa...I like the paper combo you used.

  3. What a great LO! Love the lines and simplicity of the design. You make a great point of getting our info on pages for our kids. Way to go!
