The layout is titled "Loving You" because that is what I feel I am truly good at, is loving my dear daughter Lilah. Here is what my (hidden) journaling reads:
What am I really good at? This question scared me a bit..I first thought about some of my hobbies- I love to scrapbook, I enjoy it, I am pretty creative in general, so that's good...I love to bake and to cook, I'm pretty good at taking a recipe and altering it to please the taste buds of my family...but I'm no "top chef." So what am I really good at?? I'm a good Mom! But I was so afraid to write that down, looking back at the rough week we've had- I've had a few "not so proud mom" moments, where I've lost my cool, yelled, and even cried! Bu even moments like those don't take away from the fact that I love you with all of my heart. I miss you when you aren't with me, I'd do anything to make sure you are safe and happy. I worry about you endlessly. I'm always thinking about and talking about you-- I could go on and on. My proudest moment was when I gave birth to you. I would do anything for you, my sweet Lilah. For all these reasons and more, I know the one thing I am truly amazing at- is loving you! And being your mom. Even on the not so good days, I am the best Mom to you that I can be. Thank you for giving me this awesome talent!
Pretty lengthy for me, huh? I actually sat down and wrote my journaling before I even started my layout, something else I've never done!! All and all I'm pretty proud of myself for opening up to this challenge.
Ok, that was a long read, thanks for taking the time. Here's my layout:
I used up some bits and pieces from the "Dance in the Sunshine" collection from Glitz. Love these colors!
