We are ALL AWESOME!!!!

Hiya Ladies : )

There has been a call for 2 design team members at the boxx. There is a thread where gals who want to tryout for a possie upload 3 lo's. I have noticed that soooo many of us are insecure about our scrapping...and have been nervous to enter. This has really got me thinking......

We women are far too hard on ourselves!!!! We live in a world where perfection is a constant goal. We think we must be perfect wives, perfect mothers, have the perfect figure, be perfectly beautiful (inside and out), be the perfect size and be perfect at our hobbies. I want all you ladies to know that we are all AWESOME in our own INDIVIDUAL ways....and that includes scrapping. It doesn't matter how many design teams we are on or how many magazines we have been published in. It doesn't matter how many super comments we get on our LO's. All these things are nice and it feels good to be "accepted".....but it shouldn't matter. Most ladies I know scrap from a loving place in their heart. They do it to create a memory of their loved ones and to express their creativity. There is no "perfect" scrapping. The beauty of art is (weather it be music, painting, dancing or scrapping) that it is individual. We are all GREAT scrappers in our own way : ) No one is "better" at scrapping than us.....just different....and how awesome is that?? It means we get to be constantly inspired!!!

Love yourselves Ladies : ) It's the best gift you can give to yourself and your loved ones....we are alllllllll AWESOME in our own SUPER DUPER unique ways!!!

Love and Peace xoxox

Challenge Heaven September Challenge : Song

I finally got to photograph this lo....the weather has cleared up!! The song to use for this challenge was "Hush Little Baby" and the lo had to include pearls aswell.

For this lo I used Crate Paper (Samantha - Lilac), Prima (Pastiche - Love Letter), & October Afternoon (Fly a Kite - Sprinklers & The Thrift Shop - Collectors Item) pp's, AC thickers, websters pages bloomers, Basic Grey brads, Fresh Vintage Craft rolled flower, My Little Pallette mini crocheted flower, Lil Red Rocket Owl button, Prima flowers, Vintage lace and doily, pearls, paint, DMC thread & bakers twine....

Cluster....note the GORGEOUS Lil Red Rocket owl button.....

My very first go at a banner!!

And my little bit of journalling and the websters bloomers which I dipped in white wash....
