Bird is the Word-"Journey", Sketchabilities #64, TCR 95 and Glitz Challenge Winner!!

Hello blogger friends!!! First of all Thank you so much for all the sweet comments and best wishes for me in my last post.  They made me very are Awesome!!!  For every negative experience we learn or laugh about something... I happened to have to go to the doctor(orthopedic) and I couldn't move my arm and had to comb my hair, my girl was at school, well I sat in my bed and my hubby comb my curly hair or at least tried...he made me a pony tail that was he told me and when I saw me at the mirror, OMG!!! that was a sun-like pony tail...I looked like a sun with explotions with the hair standing  and I started to laugh and laugh that I forgot my pain.  He fixed it, yes he went to my closet and brought my black suede hat and put it on me.  I had to go with the hat to the doctor's office either it was that or I had  to go with my sun-like pony tail.  After all I think the people in the office when they saw me with the hat and the orthopedic cast they understood what happens.
But everytime I remember I still laugh.

Well now to show you the page I did for Bird is the Word challenge and the new word is "JOURNEY" You can use this word in the tittle or your journal page.  I made my page about one of our trips as a couple, we had great memories.
You can see the rest of the DT's work at Bird is the Word,  we love to see how you interpret this word.

I combined my DT work with TCR 95 color palette.

More details......

I combined various paper lines like: Webster Pages, Prima, Making Memories and American Craft and Bazzil cardstocks.
