This page is a scetch challenge, but it is also for a challenge on Jessica Sprague. I had to use paper from this set - Sweet Shoppe Designs, Carnival; it had to be about me, have at least 4 pictures, have re-colouring, column journaling, rounded corners on one element and brushes. The brushes are from JGaylor and they are his Valentine brushes.
The journaling says: I have so few photos of myself since the kids were born. Thereís 2 reasons for that - I took all the pictures and I was ashamed of myself. I am now doing something about the second reason and I am no longer ashamed of myself. I have learned to like and appreciate myself no matter what I look like or how many people like me. I am the person I was meant to be and I am proud of that. As I grow to accept myself for who I am in this moment, I am also getting more involved in the kidsí lives instead of hiding in the shadows. I have alsways been the person to cuddle them and soothe them while David was the one to have fun with them. Thatís changing. I am getting healthy, I am getting more active and I am becoming the mother that my kids were meant to have and to be the woman I was meant to be.
