Scrap therapy

people are always curious of my reasons for doing so many 'me' pages.
it was not alway like that - when i first started scrapbooking i covered mostly trips, birthdays, events and the like but as time went on i discovered that i loved scrapping more about my heart and soul, about my emotions and my life journey and about the every day little things. i am not big on writing so my layouts take the place of a journal. a visual journal that is.

all the 'all about me' layouts i create give me the opportunity explore feelings and get to know myself a little bit better. it's like putting my emotions on a page and turning them into art! i think it's a great way  to combine a passion and creative outlet with some therapy, don't you think?

been busy scrapping my heart out for sure!

here are last week's pages:
























and my freebie today is to encourage you to do some pages about yourself - yes, some scrap therapy!!

repeated lines: this is me

  8. Thank you for the wordart. :) I never question why some people's pages have more journaling than others or how they chose their topic. I love seeing all the different styles people use that I might not have thought of. It would be so boring if everyone's pages were the same, wouldn't it? Yours are always lovely and inpsiring and, of course, your freebies are awesome!
