It's reveal day! So today is my first time contributing to the reveal at Studio Calico. When I first received my kit, I was giddy about diving in. I slowly unpackaged everything, fondled it all, then put it back away. I did this about 3 separate times until I realized I needed to just dive back in. To say I was intimidated was an understatement. I feel like the scrapbooking industry has changed so much. While I was immersed in it for 10 straight years, I took a hiatus for the last 3 years. Lots of changes took place and I found myself wondering if I had changed at all or if I was still stuck in 2011. One of the reasons I had taken a break from scrapbooking was my need for privacy for my kids as they were getting older. Though I still struggle with that and go back and forth on it, I definitely found myself witholding during my journaling this time around. Journaling is one of my favorite things and one of the things I treasure most about scrapbooking. I realize that these pages were baby steps and that I know as time goes by I will be able to journal more openly.
I'm so thankful for this opportunity and look forward to this year of kits I get to play with! I really loved this Far Far Away kit. It's whimisical and fun, perfect way to start off the New Year! Besides this layout, I made a few Christmas gifts that I gave away, I'll be posting them here next week.
