It Makes Me Special and a Crop

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Who are you celebrating this year? Your significant other? How about yourself? I'm learning to love myself and accepting that I am is what makes me special. I think self-confidence is a very good thing and doesn't have to be confused with being prideful or arrogant. 

I've always been one who worries about what others think of me. I've based some opinions about myself on what others have said or by the judgements they have made. Some of those words and judgements were not good nor were they truth. I believe that anything that might be true, will only help you grow as a person. And that's what I want to strive for. It's not always easy and can be very risky putting yourself out there and not wavering from your true self. 

Layout created using the February kit RISK from Scrapbooking from the Inside Out.
I loved the papers in this kit. On this layout I used the On Trend papers by Crate. The mix of patterns and colors work perfect for the theme of RISK. Bold colors with strong patterns. 

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the paper blocks and the flower.
Here are the shapes I used: 3d Flower Design ID #27361 and 12x12 Background Shapes by Lori Whitlock Design ID #22982

Is accepting who you truly are been a scary thing for you? What about loving who you are? Even more scary? Take the risk... it might just be worth it.
