I am Beautiful



On National Scrapbooking day, Ali Edwards issued several challenges over at the CKMB. One of them was to scrap 3 to 5 reasons why I am beautiful. To help that along, Liz Ness started a thread about words of beauty. See that thread here.

I wrote my journaling for this layout that night but didn’t actually do a layout until today. I had a great time just using up lots of buttons and brads that I’ve been hoarding and not finding a use for. I took that idea from Noell’s blog http://www.paperclipping.com/ about making older products fresh again. While the products I used aren’t really “outdated,“ I’ve had them quite a while. It was fun pulling ideas from so many different places. It says:
Beautiful because
1. My age and experiences have mellowed and softened me. They’ve made me appreciative of the many blessings I enjoy and I am content and satisfied with my life.
2. I choose to be happy and look on the bright side of life. There is not much that life can throw at me that can’t be worked through if I have a smile on my face and laughter in my heart.
3. My husband tells me I am. He makes me confident in my beauty. He tells me every day how beautiful I am, how sexy I am and how much he loves me. His belief in me makes me beautiful.

That is a beautiful picture of you! I love the layout. The buttons and brads look great lining the circle like that!
