12/19/15 - "...Confident"

And here I am...AGAIN...

Layout #17 for 2015

Lots of journaling on this one!

Journaling: "I have a confession to make...
I'm 40 years old and I love to take "selfies". If you pay attention to my IG feed that
doesn't come as a surprise to you, LOL 
Some may call it conceited, but I say "what's wrong with being confident"?
It's an important step in my growth as a person. I used to hate the way I looked but as I've
gotten older I've learned to love myself, flaws and all. I'm not saying there aren't things I still
dislike about my appearance... and if I can change them I will... but for those things I can't, they
 are no longer my focus. Instead I prefer to focus on the beauty...even if I am the only one who
sees it."

Created for the "December Music Inspiration" Challenge.

"The purpose of the challenge is to create a layout using something from a song, whether it is all or part of a title, lyrics or artist name. The fun part is you do not get to chose your own song - the person who signs up after you does!" 

The song that was chosen for me was: "Confident" by Demi Lovato.

I used some lyrics from the song in my journaling and title: "what's wrong with being confident?"

Not 100% happy w/ this.
It didn't come out exactly how I envisioned it in my head...but it's done!
I AM happy with how it made me dig deep within myself and discover how I feel about "me".

BTW - It is a total coincidence that I just recently made a similar themed page about my daughter!


  1. Good for you! That's awesome! We were at an event last night where a professional photographer took our photo ... and OH BOY! I so don't have your confidence ... I thought I looked between an amazon woman (not the hot kind! LOL!) and an old fat lady .... what I wouldn't give for some confidence! LOL! :)

  2. Ohmygosh I love this layout and love you!! I think it's awesome when people take selfies. (Check out rukristen, she talks lots about that). What a fun challenge! Maybe I need to get back on there and check it out.

  3. That's awesome. Keep taking those selfies - you're gorgeous! Nothing wrong with being confident!

  4. Great layout! Love the papers...awesome song :)


Thanks for all your comments!!! They really mean a lot to me!!!
