When I first heard what our September Kit at SFTIO was about, I was super excited. Enlightenment is all about learning and growing... becoming aware of who we are and the world around us. When we learn we also find out more about our purpose in life. I truly believe that changes as God takes us on different adventures in life. My purpose at one point was to be the bestest friend possible to someone in need. Another time it was to travel overseas and teach art and music. Then it was to teach preschoolers. I feel like He is preparing me for something new once again. Not sure exactly what it is but I've noticed that each time a new adventure is about to start, I'm a little bit more patient. I'm a little bit more aware of what's around me. A "stop and smell the roses" moment if you will. I am becoming more aware of who I am!

Up close of the journaling:

Most product is from the Enlightenment Kit at SFTIO!  It's GORGEOUS!!! My favorite so far. :)  For this particular layout, I enjoyed including some hidden journaling and allowing the focus of the layout to be on my photos.  What was a totally goofy photo shoot has produced some of my favorite photos. I don't typically hide my journaling because it's private... I'm pretty much an open book.  But I do hide it for design sake.  And those sweet pockets and journal cards from Maya Road are so perfect.

Hope you can come join us at SFTIO and get yourself one of these kits.  And the community is fabulous too.  A great group of women that are so accepting and just the loveliest of the lovelies.
