just believe in yourself..

a good way i found to develop myself in the area of scrapbooking was to be challenged to try something new. this came in the way of doing a challenge pack from my local scrap store which was terrifying at first as i thought i just didn't have enough skill or know how. but to my big surprise i actually won the first challenge i entered. the idea of the challenge was to use only the materials in the pack, but you could add rub-ons, stamped images on the papers, or paint, and even stitching in a color that matched the papers in the pack..i think the title of the layout speaks to me even now and i still love this layout, it will be an eternal favorite i think.. the title is simply.." BELIEVE.". i used a photo of my gorgeous daughter Hannah, and i drew and cut out all the leaves and flowers by hand as i didn't even own a punch of any description.. and i say to you... just believe... believe in yourself, you can create a beautiful layout to look back on and remember the moments frozen in time by the power of photography..
