project #14

made with love (and paper) design team
may 1, 2012
theme: new beginnings
requirements: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue

while this little saying is a wedding tradition, creating a wedding project was not required. it was due on the edge of spring and there are so many wonderful things about this season! i wanted everyone to think of new beginnings and use that as their inspiration. while my project is not really reflective of spring or spring colors it does feature a *new beginning* theme {not to mention it fulfills all the requirements - and that was a challenge!}
this project is a bit different from many of my others because of the theme - ME! i generally scrap my pets, family, and me with my friends & boyfriend. this time, however, i wanted to try something new ~ i wanted to make something all about me.

something old: the picture {i am blonde now}
something new: technique - covering chipboard with paper {i have never done this! always painted or inked it!}
something borrowed: marilyn monroe quote
something blue: background paper {immortal love stack - along with the rest} my new beginning consists of me realizing how important it is to love yourself! while this is not a new concept to me anymore it was a few years ago. i used to think i knew what was important and i realized one day how wrong i was. i began to see that i matter and i cannot love anyone without loving myself (cheesey, i know, but it is true!) i had been wanting to scrap something like this for a while and am planning on doing more "me" things because i want to make sure i am documenting that stuff along with every other part of my life.

i also wanted to add the marilyn quote 1. because i love her and 2. because the beginning part "i am selfish, impatient, and a little insecure" used to apply to me and the ending "i make mistakes, i am out of control and a little hard to handle. but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best" didn't. now, it is the other way around :)
