i was absolutely taken by this gorgeous mood board over at scrap around the world and just had to start getting creative straight away. i normally take a few days to scrap but this one was done in a day, and had now become one of my favourite pages i have done.
here is the mood board
and here is how i decided to take a little inspiration from the board ...
the quote- although i didnt use those words i found a quote that was very relevant to my life right now
glasses-a lilttle insight into my thoughts (lol)
butterfly- colour and animal used
white crackling- i have used kaiser basecoat paper which has a similar look
also used the gesso with the crackle effect
swirls- the circle chipboard
this page is a first for me as it is a 12x12 photoless layout.
it is untitled.
i just love this quote, i think every so often its a great reminder of how i need to live my life for me and my beautiful family and not care that others will judge me for what ever reason,
to keep people around me that support me and encourage me to keep being myself and who are always there for me.
as my partner and i were together when we were teenagers and started our family quite young it was just right for us, and as an army wife it can get quite lonely but he is such a fantastic and support dad and husband i honeslty couldn't ask for anyone better. due to have our 5th baby next month with quite a small age gap between kids we are quite often judged but i am learning that my life isnt for everyone, but it is for me and they cant take away our happiness with their stares,judgements or rude comments.
so the quote reads
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.
so , love the people who treat you right and forget about the people who don't.
and believe that everything happens for a reason.
if you get a chance - take it
if it changes your life - let it
nobody said it would be easy...
they just said it would be worth it.
