Personal Trainers

Happy Monday friends,

I'm finally able to share with you the layout I created for Scrap Street magazine last month.  It was such an honour to have been asked by Stacey to create something especially for her article on Spring/rejuvenation.  I was asked to create a project that focused on personal rejuvenation.  The first thing that came to mind was working out, either physically, or spiritually.  I decided to go with the spiritually focused one.  I am lucky enough to have a few women women in my life who fill that role in my life.  Sandra, Angela, and Linda are all the kind of friends to whom I can share my most personal feelings.  Thoughts on parenting, friendship, faith, struggles I may be having in any one of those area, and the like are all topics discussed with no holds barred.    These are the woman who can call me on my 'stuff', encourage me when I feel like I'm failing, and just overall love me unconditionally.  I entitled the layout based on the fact that time with these ladies does feel like a bit of a training session, the best kind.  One where you have your own dedicated person looking out for your best interest.  That's them.  I am so very lucky to know each of them.



I journaled all about why I see them as personal trainers on both sides of a tag and hid it behind the photos.  I tend to do that whenever the nature of the story is very personal.  I used a lot of Studio Calico on this one, with a little Amy Tangerine, and some other embellishments from my stash.  This is one of my favorite layouts.  I think because the design, and happy colours are such a great reflection of the intimate, warm fuzzy feelings behind the layout.

Thanks for stopping by today.
