The past few months have been very challenging for so many reasons. In fact, this entire year has been quite the challenge with many of my worst fears becoming realities this year. Overall I cannot wait for 2011 to be over because I'm ready to get on with good times instead.
In September, one of my biggest fears at work occured and it really hit me hard. Unfortunately I cannot discuss the details of this, however it resulted in a lot of self-doubt and reflection. Over the days that followed that experience, I had so much time to go over and over it in my head and have since made peace with the situation, knowing that I did do an exceptional job and I should never have doubted myself in the first place. However as humans, we do. Over and over again. Its one of those frustrating traits most of us seem to have.
Up until recent times, I had never scrapped about anything negative. Always instead focusing on the positives in life. However the negatives shape us just as much as the positives do, therefore it is important to record both of these. Especially when it comes to self-reflection like I have done in this next layout. Many of you will have seen one of my recent posts after having lost my cat recently too so again, its a moment that should be recorded and remembered, because no matter how hard, these moments do shape us.
Bo Bunny layout challenge, which is to be inspired by circles. I absolutely love the timepiece collection and have used it on so many creations. For this particular layout, I chose the clocks (circles) to express the sentiment that time heals all. There are also some great circular designs on the background paper too.
Materials: Bo bunny timepiece papers, Kaisercraft velvent ensmeble mini pad, Kaisercraft blooms & bling, AC thickers, Jillibean soup kraft alphas, Manor House creations leaves, vintage buttons and twine.
Thanks everyone for taking the time to look. This particular layout was one that I contemplated not sharing but decided to go ahead and share. It has taken time, but I have had the chance to move past the experience now. There are still reminders here and there but my doubts are gone.
