Stamping On Transparencies: A Video!!!!!!

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Stay Laser-Focused On What Is Important To You!
Not a day goes by that I don't learn something from Buddy (the dog that shares his life with me).  Today I was once again struck by how focused his attention can become when he sees something that is important to him - a squirrel; a rabbit; a bone; me :)  It doesn't seem to matter what other distractions are going on around him - when one of those things is in front of him, his attention does not waver.  What is important to me?  For me it is creativity, health and family.  As I look at opportunities and distractions that come my way, I need to continually ask myself if what is presenting itself to me contributes to my creativity, my health or my family.  I need to stay laser-focused on those things that matter to me the most!  I believe it is this focus that has led to my success so far in my commitment to my P90X workout program, my current vegan/no oil diet (I go to the doctor this week, so I'll let you know what the impact has been on my blood work!) and to trying to be at home with my family as much as I can, while at the same time ensuring I spend time creating and sharing that creativity with you as close to every day as possible!  What is important to you?  How can you ensure that that which is important to you is what you focus on?
I know that yesterday I said I was going to share another completed collage with you, so I hope you will forgive this small diversion from that plan!  I thought is was important to share this card and technique with you today since the collage builds upon this idea :)  Here is a video to show you how I made this card using window sheets/transparencies.  Enjoy!!!!!
