Can't Go Back



When I saw the prompt at Bo Bunny to use stitching and journaling I was ready to go. If you know me, you know I'm a HUGE fan of Bo Bunny. My goal is to one day get on their design team, it would be a life long dream come true. I think I stitched every piece of paper on the layout, lol. The journaling I did is partially hidden and is further down my post. Then I needed some inspiration for the rest of my layout. Yesterday I was visiting Scrap It With A Song and yet again it made me cry when I hear the song "Falling Slowly". This gave me the title for my layout. This morning I was blogging along and came across a new blog Scrapbookers Paradise and am trying their sketch challenge. It's funny, I drive to this store 3 hours from my house to shop and never knew they had a blog. So... this is me and my journaling reads:

After two years of asking "what if" and "why" I now realize I can't go back.
I have to move forward. I have to let go of the past and not hurt anymore.
I have to focus on today, not yesterday, not tomorrow. 
I have to keep reminding myself that today is a gift and I need to appreciate what I have in my life.
It's time to move on, it's time to let go, I can't go back.


Thanks so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments and I appreciate your scrappy support! Have a wonderfully happy scrappy day! Lynn
