~Happy Tuesday- Reveal week begins!!~

Good morning my crafty friends,
I will forewarn you, the next 5 days will be INTENSE
because these are my reveal days for
Scrapbooking From The Inside Out
and their theme this month is ANGER

So....bear with me, it only comes around every once in
a while...but I firmly believe if you can it is wonderful
to express your emotion through ART and to me
scrapbooking IS ART!

Here is my first page with this month's amazing kit!
The others do not include photos
But this one has a GIANT photo (8X10)
Because I feel the battle inside me is so epic.
Please don't judge me, it is extremely difficult to
share these pages so loudly, since they are so personal.
But I do because I know other people feel
the same way it is always a good thing to share.
Ok I am off to have some fun today!
We are having a great week with company.

Yesterday we visited the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg, TN
I thought I would have no interest in it but I LOVED IT!!!!!!
It was great!
I thought I wold share a couple pictures with ya!
The cave in the Distillery area, so cool and amazing!
The boys had a great time
(it's a dry county so no worries, no drinking allowed)
They loved the ice cream shop after wards!
This picture cracked me up! LOL
Grandpa and Grandson, I love this picture!
Here we all are with the Jack Daniels statue.
It was a long day but so fun!
I was happy to be home :)

I wanted to take a moment to talk about prizes and the MANY
MANY prizes I give away out of my own pocket.
I do this to share the love of crafting and out of kindness.
I always send the prizes off promptly, I believe I have
now given over 150 prizes to on my blog, each time
paying for it out of my own pocket.
If by chance the USPS did not deliver it to you.
I apologize, from the bottom of my heart.
Out of 150 prizes only maybe 2 have not made it.
I am very sorry, but many times I do not have a replacement
prize and I am
NOT a business and I do not have much money.
I have sent things all over the WORLD out of my own pocket!
I am just like the rest of you, I do the best I can.
Thanks for understanding and not being angry with me
because it was simply a gift :)
Please take it in the spirit it is intended.
I am only human and do the best I can always....

~Have a wonderful Tuesday~
~Thank YOU for stopping by~

Oh my you are such a beautiful person and if you are happy with you then that is all that matters, do it for yourself and NO one else. Love the layout, very theraputic and great colours for the topic. Looks like you had a wondeful day out too.
Now if someone is not happy that you sent them something that did not arrived they should not be counted as a friend, a gift is exactly that, something that we should all be grateful for and even more grateful for the time, money and energy it takes for you to organise these things. For me I am always grateful for the lovely svg's you create and giveawy for free as I know they alone take time.
Have a great day.
Kim xXx

Colleen said...

Wow, I love the layout and how you so willingly shared about being overweight. I also struggle with my weight (have since I was in high school and my dad thought that I was overweight) It was so helpful to read about someone who is okay with it. Thanks for sharing that with your readers. Sounds like you had a fun time at Jack Daniels. Have a great week.

Your lo is amazing! As a fellow voluptious woman I can understand completely the full circle of coming to terms with your own body and learning to love it. I appreciate how you are so willing to share your soft under belly with all of us. I know for me your are truly inspirational and I am truly thankful I found you and your blog! Have a fabulous day and as I do every day remember to love you!

Dawn said...

Sweetie you are just stunning, both inside and out. I appreciate a woman that can wear pink hair and be beautiful! It is my favorite color.
I always look forward to your postings of the real layouts. It has motivated me so many times to do my own "true" layouts.
Hugz to you

Your page speaks volumes to me! Why are we so hard on ourselves? I am glad you shared it. On another note, next time you go to Lynchburg you MUST make reservations to have dinner at Miss Mary Bobo's, just a couple of blocks from the town, food is amazing and served by "period theme dressed" folks who are full of history and information, you will love it!

Manhattan Mandie said...

I absolutely LOVE your layout!!! It is so amazing and I love that you are able to say what you feel. Plus I LOVE the gorgeous photo you chose to scrap, you are beautiful and I think a lot of us feel the same way about ourselves and just don't say it.... So happy I found your blog!!!

Kelly Massman said...

I'm still thinking about your page. I saw it earlier this morning! I have gotten "heavy" myself. Really, to me it's more about health than beauty. Your beauty is self-evident from your generous nature and your layouts! When I think of you, I think of your smile! :-)

Nicole K/GothamGal said...

You ARE beautiful.
Thank you for your honesty.

I like that you seem to be fearless with this SFTIO kit and it's very inspiring. Thanks!

Clair said...

Fantastic layout. I love the way you've included so much journalling - especially since it's so heartfelt.

There's always something each of us battles with so thanks for sharing your own personal demons!

Pinky, I LOVE this LO! Everything about it works so well. The journaling placement is great, I like how you have it broken up and on several cards. That is great! Not to mention an very inspiring story, I struggle with my weight and always have. The colors are great and the photo is wonderful Thanks so much for all your inspiration. I love your blog and though I don't get a chance to read everyday, I always read EVERY post.
