yummyscrap #12

i pick and choose which colour palette challenges to do as i love to work with patterned paper. when i saw yummyscrap #12 i had to play along as i had the perfect papers in mind. 
MME-stella and rose. 
so yes the blue is a little darker but i ran with it anyway. 

here is the yummy palette
and the sketch is from pagemaps

 and here is my page. 

close ups

so this page is a little different. 
normally i scrap to make it all about the photo,but this page is about the story behind it and its an inspiration for me. 
so basically i did some training about 3 and a half years ago to be a bodystep aerobics instructor. i was doing really well, had filled in for a friend a couple of times then almost lost my 3rd baby at 14 weeks so obviously i stopped all exercise until he was born. But in that time we were posted to a different town and i never picked up my instructing. we were in that posting for 2 years and have come back to our original location with the same group of instructors that i worked with last time.
i have basically been handed a class if i want it ( which i do ) but i lack the confidence on stage which is holding me back from being as good as i can be. 

so i have a few little inspiration quotes , photos and journalling to help me believe in myself. 
the title "breaking free" (which is actually the name of some scrappaper) is for me to break free from my own judgement, put myself out there and to stop allowing my negative thoughts hold me back. 

wow.... long post sorry
but thanks for looking and any comments you may leave.

I am so glad you told your story and love the little details on your page, you have used the scrap from Collections hearts as an embellishment! Awesome, a great page and a great story. Believe in yourself, I believe in you!

  2. I LOVE these sorts of pages, cos they have a real deep go, girl!!! They'll all be just glad to follow you in the class & I bet they have NO idea that you're not confident....& you know what they say - the more you do it, the more you DO it!!!!!!!!
