~Pretty Good Monday

So, I had a nice surprise yesterday.
Karin on my Just Scrappin' board posted this....

And sure as sh*t there was my Rape LO.
Pretty cool. Oh and did I mention I have a 4 page article about my work and my goals?
This is a quote from the article.
Retelling her life story through her art
means depicting the good and the bad
for Pinky. Her unfortunate personal history
of abuse is often featured in her
layouts. Pinky admits, she “touch(es) on
taboo subjects quite often” and is not
afraid to scrap the tragedy and the treasures
of her life. Her amazing ability to

openly discuss a topic which many would
rather ignore is also manifest in her personal
scrapbooking goals. Pinky shared
with me that she has one big dream; “to
use my scrapbook pages about abuse
to write a book about how to survive as
an adult and turn something ugly and
bad into something creative and beautiful.”
Her example has inspired me to

be more open and transparent in my art,
letting the real me come out, to hopefully

inspire and touch someone else, like
she has touched me.

I was thrilled with how Scrap'N'Art portrayed me.
I was worried but I feel like they captured what I am about.
So PLEASE go download the newest issue and read the article and
there is also a tutorial!

Oh and yesterday was the I downloaded my Treasured Scrapbooking
DT REVEALS! I had Kit #1 it was so awesome!

So that was my weekend in a nutshell.
Good days and sad day (Ellie's LO)
Typical life of the Pink Haired Mom! hehe
~Have a beautiful Monday~
Let me know how your weekend went?
