~Happy Weekend to you all, more reveals!~

Good morning, it is Labor Day weekend
and I am dreaming of a pool! LOL

Another day of reveals here from Scrapbooking From The Inside Out
and if you have not checked out this kit you should.
It truly is BEAUTIFUL!

You know the theme was Enlightenment,
I love how accepting everyone is at SFTIO of each individual
take on the theme.
You know I scrap so many sizes now, I need to make
different albums I guess.
This photo is a picture I snapped in TN on vacation
we stopped at several cemeteries and this was so amazing
I had to snap a few shots. Something in the peaceful beauty
of this statue that gave me faith.
Seeing her leaning on the cross left me speechless.
It’s so hard for me to explain to other crafters that when I scrap about my
life or the abuse in my past I am not angry or reliving the experience again and again.
No, it’s not that at all, in fact it is the opposite.
For me it is a constant self awareness that reminds me to appreciate
every single moment of every single day.
It’s also important to me to always be able to speak out LOUD & PROUD.
After living 20 years under a blanket of shame and everyone else’s secrets,
it’s time for me to be completely open and self aware.

Tomorrow I will be randomly drawing a winner
for the My Mind's Eye Halloween paper! So please check back :)
I am off to spend the day with my boys,
and possibly bake some cookies!

~Have a beautiful weekend!~
~Thanks for stopping by and saying hi~
