I Made It

I have gone back and forth many a time as to whether I would share a certain photo with the world. It's quite embarrassing. I've held onto it because it does represent a certain time of my life and honestly, we all have one. Please prove me wrong. Haha!

It's an old school photo showcasing a very bad perm and awful teeth. That's a story in and of itself but the photo was taken right before I got braces. I was just about to tuck the photo away forever when I found out what the December topic was for SFTIO - Uncertainty. Well crap. Now it fit perfectly. Because, as with most of us, the middle school years were filled to the brim with uncertainty. Who am I? Who are my friends? How do I even know how to figure any of this out???


I titled the layout "I Made It" because I did. I made it through that awkward and uncertain time in my life.


Love the Jenni Bowlin papers that are included in this months kit. Perfect for doing some fussy cutting and creating your own embellishments.



In this months kit are two bottles of Tattered Angels glimmer mist. I used some Basic Grey flowers to do a mask. While I'm not a full time mister, I am trying out some new things and taking some risks with it.


And a close up of the journaling.

So did you keep any of your childhood school photos? Be honest... do you have an awkward one that you cringe at everytime you find it???

hugs,
Melissa
