Thank you for Bee-ing so kind

Here's what's going on @ the Happy Monday Challenge!
This Week's Challenge: Reaching Out to Our Elderly
Once each month we ask you to make something to meet a specific need in our community. Your challenge this time is to make a card or other handmade project to appreciate or just give a little extra attention to a senior citizen. This could be someone you know, or someone you reach through your church, a local retirement home or senior activity center, etc.

Wonderful Challenge!...don't you think? I work at a Nursing Home. I have met a lot of interesting people, who face all sorts of different challenges everyday. There is one particular lady, that deals with constant pain & yet is so kind to everyone. I decided to make her a journal.  I thought that she could write in it, use it for a guest book for visitors, etc. I used the digi & sentiment, "Bee-lieve" by Deedee's Digis. I added some gold glitter to the bee hive, colored with Copics & used some DP by SU!
If you can, join the Happy Monday Challenge. It's a great challenge & if you use one of their images on your challenge entry (they have a freebie on their side-bar), you will get this week's dollar digi, "Life's a picnic" for free! 
Also, if you haven't already, click on the Creative Cowgirls Challenge Badge on the top-left corner on my blog. You can see my Guest DT card & info about entering their current challenge!
