Webster's Pages: Beautiful Chic

I received a box of Webster's Pages and swooned!  The collections are great!  I was drawn to the bold colors of Beautiful Chic and went right to work.

That journaling card with the little girl's shoes spoke to me and I made a page about my daughter.

Aren't those shoes the cutest!  I did some hand cutting of the papers to get the Beautiful for my title.  I also cut the black doilie and the You Are Loved quote. 
I have another page on the way using Allison Kreft's new collection!  I adore all things Webster!  Check out the new collections on the Webster's Pages website!

Revisiting Bravery

This month is flying by and I have not been on the computer very much!  I wanted to jump on and post another page using the Inside Out March kit, BRAVE.  I had a great time exploring the concept of being brave and decided to take a serious approach to this page.
It is bravery in my world.  All the times I needed to stand up and be strong are documented.  The tragic, the ugly, the shameful, the empowering and the joyous.  It is amazing that brave can fit all of those things.
I kept the page simple, but the topic heavy.  It was healing to make this page.

I journaled enough to tell the story that I would recognize, but not get too personal.  My kids are young yet can understand enough.  Someday, I will more openly share these stories when they can better comprehend.

Relying on Others

Sometimes you rely on others to gain perspective.  You need them to tell the truth so your life can make sense and  you can move forward.  I believe in telling the truth and appreciate hearing it. 

I asked for the truth several years ago from my mom.  I wanted to know some things about my childhood.  I had some feelings and memories of happenings, but I couldn't clearly get the vision of what went on.

My mom told the truth and it must have been hard.  She had to relive some things and admit some truths.  I am grateful that she did because my flashes and memories made sense. 

I created this page for the Inside Out kit, BRAVE.  I loved exploring this theme.  It was empowering and healing.  I will share more about this page over at the Inside Out blog this month.

I believe scrapbooking should be about the stories and there is power in telling all sorts of those, even the hard ones.  If you are interested in this kit and the concept, check out the website for information about joining.

A New Month

A new month means a new kit from Inside Out Journaling.  Our theme this month is BRAVE!  I look that word and all it stands for.  Being afraid, yet still having courage to move forward and take action.  I did a lot of soul-searching and heavy journaling this month.

I started with this page about my kids and the power of their love.  I have tackled some demons and continue to do so because their love is so pure and unconditional.  I love how happy this page feels to me!

It is one of my favorites from the kit.  You can explore the kit club and sign up by going to the website. 

I did a lot of handcutting and doodling using the stencil from the kit.  My journaling means a lot to me as well.  I will be sharing more about this page and my other pages over at the Inside Out blog on Mondays.   Be sure to check it out!
