Wishful Soul

When I saw this sketch by Karan Gerber at Sketchabilities  I wanted to do it right away. I just love her! When I saw the banner I went "yikes". That's what I love about challenges. They sometimes take you out of your comfort zone or let you try things you wouldn't normally do. My first thought was....wedding layout! But then I sat and thought about it. I wanted to do pink and frilly, and it took me 2 hours to find a photo, lol. I wish I had a baby girl ( anyone want to borrow me a grandbaby?) I ended up picking a photo of me with my new "piggy mittens" I got for my birthday when we went to Banff for the weekend.  Then I stopped by Scrapping The Music and when I heard the song "I'm alive" and read the lyrics I knew what the layout was going to be called. Those girls over there really have to stop making me cry. I don't share alot of my personal story on my blog, so that's why alot of the time it's in hidden journaling. For my journaling I used the lyrics to the song. It spoke to my heart. So thank you Karan for the beautiful sketch and for the girls who always touch my heart at Scrapping the Music.
