Today I want to share the latest challenge at Challenge YOUrself! In case you forgot, it's a blog that challenges you to make a layout with YOU in the photo each time! Here is their mantra:
"Hey you! The one who likes to snap hundreds of pictures of everyone else. Yes, you know who you are! It's time to start getting in front of the camera and scrapping memories that include YOU in the photo! Join us once a month and challenge YOUrself!"
This month's challenge is all about positive affirmations and Lynn says it so well:
"Do you find that positive self-talk helps you feel better in difficult situations? Do you seek inspirational quotes to get you motivated? Positive affirmations are a great way to empower your life. You become what you think and what you believe. Your thoughts create your reality. To affirm is to have an intention, a statement. It is recognizing and asserting YOUrself."
Challenge YOUrself #11 is to scrap an affirmation - one that YOU would like to attract into YOUr life. And remember, to scrap a photo with YOU in it!!!
Here is my layout:
My family has been through some rough times this past year, but it has brought me to the conclusion that I need to cherish my family and each moment of happiness that they bring! That is my affirmation!!!
Here are some different views and close-ups:
And I would be lax if I didn't mention that I used the beautiful butterflies and pink lace from Reneabouquets ETSY shop. You can see more of her beautiful items here!
And speaking of moments to cherish, my twin sister and I just celebrated our birthday and we both took a day off work. We were blessed to have Katie join us for the day, then go out to dinner that evening:
Enjoying lunch there:
