Word Challenge... Embrace

Hello Ladies,
For the month of September I have my word challenge  starting today , ending September 20th over at http://soul-scrappers.ning.com/

My Word  this time around.  I picked a word that I am going to use to carry me through this year. Embrace...to take it all in, wrap your arms and heart around it. you can Embrace new things in your life, your family, yourself, small things, big things, life changes.  To me it means looking at something, seeing the beauty in it and allowing it to sink in. . .deep into your soul. EMBRACING it. So what are you EMBRACING this year?
Here is my sample:
"Embracing the View"

If you get chance , stop on over to Soul Scrappers and play along.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day.
Hugs
Mary

Hey man I have  a beautiful Lady
                                                 
                                             

I'm gonna tell {Hey, Yippie, Yi, Yo}
To any girls calling them canine {Yippie, Yi, Yo}
Tell the dummy "Hey Man, It's part of the Party!" {Yippie Yi, Yo}
You fetch a women in front and her mans behind {Yippie, Yi, Yo} 

We had to choice a few words or the title or a phrase from the song for this challenge.

Theme Challenge

Over at Soul Scrappers we have a few new Team Designers, I had just finished Liz's theme challenge, which is  the meaning of your name. I have decided to do both of my girls names, Jennifer and Hannah,
Here is Jennifer's Page.


The number Nine personality represents the completion or ending of the cycle, and a need for perfection. This is the personality that moves from "self" to a greater understanding and compassion for the human condition and the world order. They want to make the world a better place. Nines are capable of great spiritual and humanitarian achievements. They are courageous and fearless, able to fight great battles on behalf of worthy causes. These personalities will not tolerate injustice. They are compassionate people with a strong sensitivity to others. They are able to both educate and inspire. Friendships and relationships are the lifeblood to the Nine, and they place a high value on love and affection. Nines are often exceptionally gifted artistically, and they have a keen imagination and enterprising mind.

When I was reading this, I throught to myself how true this is her.

Now we have Hannah's page.
The number one personality is a leader - strong and competitive. They are willing to initiate action and take risks. One personalities work hard toward their endeavors and have the ability to apply their creative and innovative thinking skills with strong determination. They believe in their ability to succeed and are too stubborn to be hindered by obstacles. Ones meet obstacles head-on with such mental vigor and energy that you better step aside. They resent taking orders, so don't try telling them what to do either. This is an intensely active personality, but they are also known as starters rather than finishers. They have a propensity to become bored and will move quickly to the next project if not properly challenged. They are the ones to think up and put into action new and brilliant ideas, but they are not the ones to stick around and manage them. This personality has an enthusiastic and pioneering spirit. They are distinctly original.
 
I hope you enjoy reading their personalities, which they are two opposites.
 
Moving right along I have my challenge over at Paper Secrets, yes I'm still in the running for that great prize, this is week 29. Here is our sketch this week.
