~Friday!! finally....lets have some fun RAK!~

Good morning lovelies
Happy Friday!
This has been such a long week I am thankful it is Friday,
so let's have some fun!
Nothing warms my heart more than giving away some scrappy fun.
I have a set of Rusty Pickle Panama Jack paper and die cuts for ya!
So leave a comment today and I will randomly
choose a winner on SUNDAY!



This is my last layout for Scrapbooking From The Inside Out
March Kit "Nostalgia"
Love this kit!
It's always a struggle to scrap my childhood pictures,
BUT you know me I just put it all out there for the world to see
I think I need to do a page that says
"She wears her heart on paper" instead of on her sleeve LOL
I never feel angry or sad making these pages, just reflective
and feel like I am expressing my emotions that normally
you do not get to say.

Now back to my boys and a weekend of cleaning out this flu
bug we had all week...have a beautiful weekend!
~Thank you for stopping by~
~Pinky~

I read the journaling on this page and it brought tears to my eyes. I have only a hand full of childhood photos as well. And I do not look happy in any of them except my baby photo. And oddly enough there is only 3 baby photos of me....whats up with that? I am constantly snapping photos of my kids.....I so love my digital camera because other wise the cost of developing would break me....lol.

Just wanted you to know you are not alone....and I LOVE the "she wears her heart on paper" idea!!!! Brilliant!!!

Jocelyn said...

Wishing you a Happy Friday and yes lets clean out that flu bug!!!

Dot said...

Thank you for the opportunity to win such a great RAK! I love to check your blog each day and see what you have made. You're very inspirational!

Bobbi said...

I think that you are very courageous and inspirational to share so much of your inner feelings like you do. I don't know if I could be that honest with something that others might see much less put them out there for everyone to see like you do. You are wonderful and strong and your boys are lucky to have you.

Colleen said...

Pinky, I so admire the fact that not only do you create awesome layouts, but that you are able to speak your heart in you journaling. I have such a difficult time writing down the bad and am so afraid to share but you inspire me.

Lisa said...

YOU are AMAZING! That LO really speaks to me as a daughter, mother, wife and friend, I pray that scraping those feeling, no matter how raw or difficult, helps to heal your heart in some way!

You wear your heart on your paper and I think you NEED something to show that! If I know you there will be some fabulous creation with that in mind!

Thanks for sharing and may you and yours be flu-bug free... happy weekend!

Hobbyaholic said...

I am going to Scraplift this one if it's okay with you.. I need to go check out the scrap from the inside out. I'm inspired to be brave and put those thoughts on paper.

I know how you feel not having your baby pictures because i lost some when our house got flooded.

Divinity said...

pinki...ur layout is fabulous as always!!! btw, is the sewing done with a machine????

thanks for the chance at these papers, they look like they'd make some amazing layouts! :)

Kraftychick said...

Your LOs are always so down to earth - one thing to think about - your childhood molded you and made you the terrific mother you are today - a high price to pay I know, but your children are the winners AND their children will be winners too! Have a great weekend!!! And thanks for the chance to win some great blog candy - I've never seen that paper but it looks great!

Glad you guys are feeling better. This layout is awesome.
You know, I tend to focus on only scrapbooking "the happy" stuff. But that's not reality is it! Not mine anyways! Thanks for the inspiration, I'm always learning from you.............xOxO

IanMama said...

Thanks for always putting yourself out and sharing your stories in your emotinal LOs. While things that bug me are really minor, I wish I had half your courage to put it on paper!

Pinky, I am really amazed by your pages!! They are incredibly deep and touching! I think we have a lot in common, but I am not nearly as brave a scrapper as you are. Thanks so much for sharing from the heart!
