This month we were encouraged to scrap a sad moment in our lives. It was perfect timing in a way. I discovered a few childhood family photos on my laptop as I was cleaning it up over Christmas. This photo is so telling of the way I feel about my childhood. So much sadness still present in my heart over it. Look at my brother and me, how sad we appear to be. Chances are we were likely yelled at for one thing or another just before this photo was snapped. The only person smiling in the photo is my father. The controlling, and abusive one in the family.
|The twist this month was to use a bird, a symbol of freedom on our project. Mine is tiny, but it's there on the My Mind's Eye brad on the bottom right.|
Have you ever scrapped a sad moment in your life? I found this a little emotionally draining to do, but I'm glad I did it. It will become part of my scrapbooks. It's a part of my history, and deserves it's place among the memories of the rest of my story.
If you'd like to see what the rest of the team chose to scrap you may do so here. If you choose to play along with us, you may link up there also. You have until January 31st to do so, and be entered for a chance at our Top 3, as well as a $15 gift certificate to Paper Loves Glue (a fabulous little Etsy shop with great crafting product)
Hope your week is off to a great start, thanks for popping by today! Pin It
