Hi Experimenters! We hope you all had a great weekend. We hope you'll be able to join us again for this week's challenge. Again, both paper and digital entries are accepted. So, now onto this week's challenge which is brought to you by Kimmi.

What comforts you? What are the things that you go to for comfort you when in need?

Our guest designer this week is the fabulous Suzy Plantamura.

A little bit about Suzy:
Suzy Plantamura has been creating scrapbooks of one sort or another since she was in grade school. She has always loved creating art and collecting photos and memorabilia, so when she became a stay at home mom eight years ago, scrapbooking became her passion. Suzy designs projects and pages for Maya Road, KI Love, Elsie and MAMBI. She was named a Memory Makers Master in 2006 and a CK Hall of Famer in 2008. She is often published in industry magazines and books and teaches classes at Scrapbook Oasis. She lives in Southern California with her three children and husband and loves to spend time at the beach.

I Am In Love With Candy
By: Suzy Plantamura

Journaling: I am head over heels in love with candy. Just the thought of it makes my mouth water. It is always there for me, offering me comfort, filling me up with it's sweetness. It makes me happy. I am so attracted to it. Candy is my soul mate. I am so glad we have found each other. This is MY taste of true love.

Tight, Tight Hugs
By: Kimmi

Journaling: From you is all I ever need to make it all better.

By: Sasha

Journaling: When I am stressed out and need a hug or just a smile I look toward my family for that, my immediate family. When I feel like I can't go anymore I just look at my kids faces and realize that I can press on just a little more, my husband is the softness that soothes my comfort, now don't get me wrong I would love to mention food but for a girl that is still struggling with her weight I will just keep it calorie free for a minute ... but wait ... I can get full off of my family anytime of the day ... and that to me is comfort.
