1000 Miles And a GIVEAWAY!!!

Its time for my final layout to be posted for the August Discovery kit from Scrapbooking From the Inside Out.

This layout is more about how much I've discovered about myself on my life journey.

As the mother of two small children, I'm always thinking about this...always wondering, "What will they learn about themselves, life, the world, God as they go?"

Since my mom gave me an amazing box of photos for Christmas last year, I dug into those for a good shot of me when I was little.

This is the result:

Aren't those little butterflies cool?

And this was my first round of texturizing and inking (and texturizing and inking, and texturizing and inking) a background. I love how it turned out! I also used some book pages in the background - its kinds of hard to see...I'm loving the dictionary/book pages on my layouts right now. Since I love text so much and words, its a fun way for me to incorporate something I just think is GORGEOUS into my pages.

If you think back, all the way to your childhood, what have you discovered? Every time I ask myself that question, I think about creek frogs and how white sandals don't hold up well to getting wet...but that is a story for a different day!
