This was hard for me. I've done things that I thought were brave at the time. Once I put them on paper, though, they seemed kind of lame. The bravest thing I ever did occured during the birth of my second child. I'll spare you the graphic detail. Trust me when I tell you I had to be very brave. I just could not bring myself to make a layout about the subject.
So, I focused on some other brave things. For this layout, I scrapped more about a risk. It's about letting go of a person who was really bad for me. A person who was a part of my life for many years. In the hidden journaling on the tag, I talked about how long it took me to get to the 'walk away' point and the positive things that came from the risk of letting go of him. (Like getting on with my life, traveling to lots of amazing places, getting together with my husband and having our family.) So here we go:
I used my brandy-new Studio Calico "Continental" kit. Perfect for this page. Lots of nautical looking stuff. Have always had a love for the nautical thanks to my sailing days. I stamped the numbers onto the background because they reminded me of the numbers printed on our sails. (It's an old Close To My Heart stamp.) I also used the Continental kit for the page I submitted to The Studio. It's a great kit, especially if you're doing anything travel or vacation related.
Voting starts over at The Studio on Friday so stop by. You can check out my layout & the card I had to make from the scraps. I had a ton of fun making that card. Hope you like it and vote for me! If you played along with this challenge, I'd really love to see your pages - so leave me a comment with your link!
