~It's the 25th Dirty Scraps time!!~

Good morning all you amazing crafters!
Guess what?? This weekend we hit 300 followers!
Which means I have a special party planned!!!!!!
So be sure to stay tuned...

Guess what today is? the 25th! Which means a NEW Dirty Scraps challenge is up!

I can honestly say this is one of the hardest layouts I have ever
completed and it drained me last night.
But I am glad to have done it, no regrets.
You have to check out challenge #2 for Dirty Scraps!
The journaling is on the Dirty Scraps blog
for anyone interested.
I love this picture, I took it from my front door.

I am so excited and grateful for everyone who has followed
and for those who have been there from the beginning!
What an amazing journey scrapbooking has been in my life.

I started scrapping 2 years ago and I really feel like scrapbooking has
helped me to find my voice and a confidence and LOVE I never
would have known without it.
Of course there have been a few bumps int he road but all in all
I have met the most amazing people, and made some the the best friends.
Plus it has given me a reason to get out of the house and meet
people from all over the world. I mean how cool is that?!
Overall scrapbooking has been 99% positive and I am thankful for everyone who
have shared my journey and sticks with me through the good and the bad...
and basically REAL LIFE!

~Have a great Monday, I hope you find some craft happiness today!

I am just overwhelmed by your layout. Sweetie it is just wonderful and I hope it was very therapuetic! I can see and feel your emotion with each detail. It was very touching to actually go and read your journaling.
Stay strong and THANK YOU for being brave enough to share with all of us. Now that is what scrapbooking is about, I only hope I am strong enough to start posting and journaling some of my "dirty" pages.
Big Hugz to you

I am on my way to the blog to see your writing. Great layout!

You have also taught me to express myself in layouts on some difficult times in my life. It can be a stress reliever
