The Bucket List

We visited Scrap Orchard for stop number 7 and they gave us a humdinger of a challenge that had me thinking for days. We had to scrap our bucket list, ya know the top 100 or in this case 50 things you want to do before you die. I had never even given this any thought let alone made a list. The only rules for this challenge was that all 50 things on your list had to be represented in your layout. Here is what Angi and I came up.

Journaling: I had never given much thought to a Bucket List. Working to come up with 50 things that I want to do or accomplish before I die was not an easy task. Looking over the things on my list really says a lot about where I am at in my life and where I want to be. A lot of the items are not things that I do once and then cross off but are more about changes in life styles, to be a better person. I hope that I can keep my Bucket List in mind as I go through every day of the rest of my life.
