~Today She is.....~

Erin at Treasured Scrapbooking and Just Scrappin' gave us a Self Portrait Challenge.
It's so funny I have been struggling this week with self image so this is just what I needed to
put things into perspective and sort of write it all out.
I find Scrapbooking so therapeutic sometimes.
Almost like writing in a diary.
So I did my inner chat that goes on when I see a picture of myself with other people.
I met all those girls in Alabama this weekend and when the pictures came out all i could think of was how much bigger I was then the rest.
It's funny I have fought to not have that loathing in my head for 7 years now. Some days I wonder if it will ever go away.
OK enough Debbie Downer (:
Have a beautiful Thursday and Thanks for the Challenge Erin!

I love your layout and can totally related with your feeling. I too have a hate/love relationship with myself. I think you are such a beautiful girl, and a real brave girl to go around sporting pink hair. But I love the pink hair on you. You wear it well.

Smile and think happy thoughts.
