SFTIO - July Kit - Brave and Crazy and a GIVEAWAY!

Scrapbooking From The Inside Out Courage Kit really inspired me to think about myself in a new way!

I kept thinking "brave, brave, brave" while I was pondering the theme.

This one is based on a little song by Melissa Ethridge called "Brave and Crazy"

The best line in the song is:

If I could have my way
I'd be runnin' with the circus
I would be taming all the lions
There'd be no denying I was brave and crazy

Since I aspired to that lifestyle, I thought I'd explore what it means to be brave and just a little crazy:

You know, I never realized how many people there are out there who are afraid to get on stage in front of people.  For some reason, this has never really bothered me.  In fact, I absolutely LOVED it...It was the most energizing thing I ever did (until I had kids...which is both energizing and energy-depleting!)

LOVE the stars all over this month's theme...I really liked altering the chipboard and the Coordinations Cardstock.

The GCD paper has a little sheen to it. It looks GREAT against the rougher Coordinations cardstock. I had to rough the Pink Paislee letters up a bit to get them the way I wanted. I don't often mess with letter sets...I think I'll be doing that more often.

And now for the GIVE AWAY!!!
