    Alright ladies, a little help here please:
    Here is my layout for GS Survivior.

    To carry on with my “wedding” themed layout in week 1 I have thought long and hard about what I was going to scrap about in week 2, “Something Magical”. In week 1 I portrayed how my life went from B&W to color when I married my husband, the “love” of my life. This week I would like to portray how our love (the love between my husband and I) is the most magical thing I have. It’s not tangible, you can’t touch it, but you can feel it. It is a power far greater than anything I can think of. I hope you all enjoy my interpretation of this week’s theme.

    The journaling reads as follows:


    On this road we travel, through this
    journey we call life we will have ups and
    downs. There will be days where the sun
    is shining brightly and no clouds can be
    seen and our travels will be smooth.
    There will be days where the skies are
    filled with dark clouds, the rain falls, the
    wind blows and our travels will be rough.
    Through the twist and turns of the
    winding road before us we have one thing
    that will allow us to keep moving forward
    together; it’s our unending love. The love we
    share for each other is something magical. It
    has the power to grow larger as time goes on,
    and even the power to grow beyond the two of
    us; it has the power to create new life. A love like
    ours is so magical, so very powerful, that it will
    never grow old. Even though we will grow old,
    our faces become creased with wrinkles, our hair
    turn grey with age, and our bodies grow weak,
    our love will still be youthful and strong. When
    we pass from this life into the next, and our
    bodies are buried in the ground, our love will s
    till survive. Our love will survive in the hearts
    of our children, and in the heart of our children’s
    children. Our love will be forever remembered in the
    memories of all those we leave behind us when we
    leave this life. The love we share is the most magical,
    most treasured possession I have. Love may not be a
    tangible item like money or fancy cars or shining
    diamonds, but it’s so magical that while you cannot
    “see” it you can see it and while you cannot “touch”
    it you can feel it. Our love will stand the test of time.

    What do you guys think? I haven't posted it yet waiting for some feedback first.

    I love how you are carrying the challenges through into each layout so the story continues!

    My only suggest is that the font you used for the journaling might be a little hard to read.

    So, grrrrrrr.....

    I had my "object" all chosen in my head and thought it would be easy.... it's on my wall and the second part easy to find.

    Then I tried to think how I could incorporate "magical" into it and after a lot of thinking decided on a different object.

    I spent an hour last night looking for it and tore up the whole basement!

    Yes, it is our plan to reorganize the basement this winter and my adventure only had me getting angrier by the minute at my hubby who never puts anything away in the same place twice.....

    .... but, good news is my "object" is now on the kitchen table -- finally found!

    It sure felt like a wasted evening though.

    Bummer about the frustrating evening. Wishing you a better day today!

    Here is my layout and journaling. What do you think??

    What is magical to you? What is important to your life? When asked this my
    mind went crazy! Of course my family is my world! My love for my husband, five
    children, my two children in law and my four grandchildren is unconditional ...
    and my everything. But then I thought more about physical things. My Bible
    came to mind as I try to lead my life by His word and walk the Christian walk. I
    also thought about my teddy bear that I have had since I was twenty-two days
    old. I potty trained that bear, took care of him when he was sick, he was my first
    love. My mind then went to the magic of modern medicine, the insulin, pump
    and meter that keep my youngest child alive and healthy, you can’t get much
    more magical than that!! Then I thought about my camera that allows me to
    photographs all of these memories for future generations to enjoy. But most of all,
    I think my electronic devices are my most magical things, My computer, iPhone and
    iPad allow me to share my life with my family and friends. They allow me to be close to
    my Aunts and Cousins that I had all but lost touch with. It has alowed me to reconnect
    with classmates that graduated with me 30 years ago. It allows me to scrap our life so
    that we may share it for many generations to come. They are the magic of modern
    technology!
