I'm so scared!

Okay not really.  But it does reflect the first challenge happening at AAM for July.  Our challenge is to scrap about your greatest fear.  I thought about this one for a long time because I am afraid of several things.  I don't like spiders, I don't like heights.  I don't like losing control and I definitely am afraid of people not liking me.  I decided to go with the deeper one and came up with this:

Supplies: Paper: Making Memories, Pink Paislee, Alphabet: Doodlebug Design, October Afternoon, Rub-Ons: Fancy Pants Designs, Flowers: BoBunny Press, Buttons: Creative Café, Foof-A-La (Autumn Leaves), Bling: Kaisercraft, Brads: American Crafts, Other: thread. Tools: Electronic Cutter: Silhouette SD, Other: sewing machine.

Journaling: My biggest fear is that people won’t like me. I love people and I like to feel accepted. I worry that I’m not good enough, smart or mature enough, pretty enough, funny enough, nice enough. Do you like me?

This one was a tough one for me because part of the fear of having people not like you is also the fear of admitting that fear.  Because then it opens up this door for people to actually say... well... Melissa... I kinda don't.  That's my fear anyway.  Not the reality.

Head over to AAM to see the rest of the DT's interpretation of the challenge.  You might want to play along this month too after you see who our Sponsor is.  It's a good one! :)  And we've got lots of exciting news going on over there right now anyway.

Well.... I'm working up the energy to head into work today after being sick all week.  I can tell already it's going to be a challenge and I probably won't make it the whole day.  But I think it's good to get my body going again.  Maybe tomorrow will be a full day!

hugs,
Melissa
