SFTIO DT Reveal #5

Hey yall! Whoo! It's been a week hasn't it?! Sharing all of these emotion based layouts...takes a lot out of ya! But today is the last one, then I promise to share some other scrappy stuff. As you know from this week, this month's theme at SFTIO is 'Acceptance.' This last page was a hard one for me to do. This layout is about realizing that everyone is not who they say they are. They portray one thing and then turn out to be another. You have 'friends' who walk into your life and then without warning, walk out. Although it is sad, you can't let them pull you into their drama. You just have to remember who you are, remember what you stand for, and let them go. For me, it's the only way to be at peace. It's not about being angry for me. I have chosen not to be angry or hold any grudges. I cannot change their decision and although I do not understand it, I will not question it. I just have to be me and go on with my life and in the end, I'm a better person for it. I know many of you have experienced this and it is tough, but you can't let it get you down. So although it was hard, a very calming layout to do. It left me at peace and I can move on with no regrets.

The layout is called 'Realization.' Our DT Coordinator at SFTIO, Nancy, sends us artwork each month that correlates to the theme. I chose another piece of artwork for this page. I love this artwork. It is of a lady and she is letting what is in her hands blow away with the wind...so symbolization for me. The lace, pearls, and purple craft wire were all pulled from my personal scrappy stash. The rest of the page consists of items from the November Acceptance kit from SFTIO. I used the Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner, Helmar Zap Dots, and Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots on this page. Here it is:
The pearl bling is from Queen & Co. The ribbon on the tag is from Hobby Lobby, Ribbon FX.
 This purple craft wire was so fun to work with. It has sat in my scrappy stash for a long time. I'm so glad I got to use it!
 All flowers from the kit. The one on the far right is a rub on.
Thanks for visiting my blog and discovering 'acceptance' with me. This was a tough, but big stress relieving subject for me. I can't wait to add these pages to my personal scrapbook that I keep for me. No one but me may ever see them in person, but I like that I can look back on them and remember lessons I've learned.

I hope you have a fabulous day! Happy Scrappin'!
Pin It!
