    Hello and welcome to month three of our new monthly challenge series, Finding Me In 2023. The goal of this series is to help you create an album of layouts specifically about you. Each month, a new theme will be presented along with one or more example layouts. By the end of the year, you will have a cover layout, at least 12 layouts, and an ending layout.

    The series is facilitated by me (gonewiththewind or Cheryl of Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs). Each month, one or more TLP designers will sponsor. You may find a new product from the designer sponsor(s) to help you specifically create your layout in keeping with the month’s theme, an exclusive coupon to purchase product from the designer sponsor, or a random giveaway.

    THIS MONTH’S SPONSORS are Scrapping With Liz and Gina Miller

    MARCH’S THEME: HEALTH

    For March, our theme is HEALTH. What is health? The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

    Most of us likely think of the physical aspect of health and how we can improve our health with diet and exercise. However, mental, spiritual, emotional, and financial health also contribute to overall health. In fact, I'd venture to say that all these states are symbiotic. What you do to improve your physical health will likely affect your mental and emotional health. What you do to improve your emotional health will likely affect your ability to improve your physical, spiritual, or mental health. Having good financial health will likely affect your ability to have a healthy diet and less stress.

    How do we include health in our scrapbook layouts about ourselves? Think about these suggestions as options for your layout about your health.​

    1. Share your physical workout regimen.
    2. Document a spiritual journey.
    3. Record a weight loss success or a weight gain.
    4. Detail your current financial circumstances.
    5. Describe a mental condition that affects your health.
    6. Express your emotions about a circumstance(s) in your life.
    7. Summarize your overall health condition.
    8. Document your relationship with your healthcare provider(s).
    9. Recount a physical injury and how it affected your emotions and your mental health.
    10. Share your goals for attaining/maintaining overall good health.
    There is no requirement for a specific number of words you must use on your page. You may be able to convey your thoughts and feelings with word art or photographs.

    To help you create your themed layout, Liz created Strong Cut Outs and Gina created Health & Wellness Tiny Notecards that are on sale in our 24 hour SOSN (Something Old Something New) for Wednesday, March 1, 2023. Please note that the sale price is time sensitive.

    I must be psychic! :giggle I made this layout for today's SOSN for Kim Jensen. Couldn't be a better match with this challenge if I tried. If I were asked what's helped me the most during the past years my answer would be the app Calm. Scrapped this tribute to the app:

    I have a couple of things I have wanted to document that would fit this challenge but the kits I want to use are not from TLP. However, I have never documented my history of hearing loss and tinnitus because it is not something you can actually take a photo of. But I do have the printout of my hearing test in 2016 that the audiologist penciled in the previous results from 2007 to show the amount of loss in those 9 years. So I scanned them to use. This is a 2 page layout but I'm only putting the first page here. I go into much more detail on page 2 including the notes from the test results on what to expect from this hearing loss and how I deal with both the hearing loss and tinnitus.

    As in the previous two months, I am gravitating towards two vertical columns as my design on my page. For March, I am going with only one page. Although I do have several previously done layouts which I will probably include to supplement my health journey.

    I scrapped about a health decision that was right at the time but in hindsight I would change
