Welcome to the Oh My Word! Blog Hop with Two Scrapbook Friends! You should have arrived here from Jan's blog. If you didn’t, you might want to start at Two Scrapbook Friends, so you can read all about it and you won’t miss any of the great inspiration along the way!
My word for 2013 is independence. Independence has always been something I seemed to struggle with. I am a mommas girl for anyone who doesn't already know. My family is really important to me so being apart from them is really hard for me. This October I moved away from home and moved to Elora. For those of you who know me and my personality this was very hard for me.At first I was coming home alot when Matt would leave for work for the week and come back on the weekends when he would come home. But when this challenge was given to us to pick a word and I picked independence I started to think and I have now been staying at my home in Elora alone and coming home less.
This is what I created:
I love the colours of the paper that I used because I thought it reflected my personality. The key on my layout was very important to the entire purpose of the layout. The key reflects how I started to become independent with moving out.
I added some pendents with some buttons to the side of my layout to add a little more colour.
I cut out a circle and created my title around the circle. I thought it turned out really well.
Last but not least I added some butterflies. I seem to have a slight obsession with them lately.
