Challenge 27 is up at The Dreamgirls Challenge Blog!

We had to do a lo about mother and child. I chose to do a lo about my wonderful sisters. The hidden journaling is behind the photo.

It reads: My real mom has never been a nurturing or good mom. I was - am blessed to have older sisters. My oldest sister, Jean, has always been my nurturer. Even as an infant, she was the one to feed me, change me, and put me to bed. As a young teen she took me in when my mom and step-dad moved to a retirement community (no place for a teenage girl). My next sister, Annette, has always inspired me. When I was younger, I was a sponge to her artistic talent, and she help mold me and cultivate my creative talents.

Without the love and support of these two women, I would be lost. Now that I have a child of my own, I am thankful that they love and spoil my child as if he were their own grand-child. I am truly blessed, and I love my sisters. They are the best moms a girl could ever have.

Come play along for a chance to win a prize!

I am Susan's middle sister the artistic one. Susan is the best of both of us sister's. The funny thing is Jean got married and I had to take Susan on most of my dates with my now husband.And my husband had to spank her bootie once and she's been out of control ever since. Sorry Susan

Susan I recently visited the scrapscene website and seen on there where you showed them your scrapbook room and I saw the Island you made for a desk out of a 6 foot hollow door and the cubes. Did you nail the door to the cubes or anything like that or did you just lay it on top of them? Also the paper rack is that a cube to you can buy at target or michaels and also on the side of the paper what is that more paper cube or what I can't see what it is besides it is white. You can email me at or just answer me here on your blog probably would be GREAT!!! Thank you Susan for the input in advance. I am working on my scrapbook room now and I want a Work Island.
