Be My Guest: SFTIO

I was just thrilled when I was contacted by talented designer and fabulous design team leader, Melissa Elsner, from Scrapping From the Inside Out.  She invited me to be a guest designer for the month of October using their Journey kit.  I enthusiastically said yes!

The kit arrived and I was in love.  A mix of Basic Grey and Echo Park with very cool embellishments.  Using the theme of "journey", my mind went wild.  I easily created five layouts, all of which I will share over the next couple of weeks.

Here is the first one.  It tells the story of my personal, life journey.  My mom keeps saying that my life has come full circle.  I have mended and healed the wounds of the little girl who lives inside me.  It is a story I needed to tell.

I love this woodgrain paper and wanted to use the Kraft circles from the kit to create monochromatic texture.  Of course, the circles fit my theme.  The bird represents freedom and the ability to soar.  I simply layered other pieces to give my black and white photos a place to rest.  The punch of pink represents the girl inside.

This kit rocks!  On top of that, I love the whole idea behind SFTIO.  It isn't just about the page, but its about the stories.
