Always Forgiving


For this layout, I simply use two plain cardstock DCWV black and white, corrugated board, different colors of paint,metal photo corner,chipboard, alphas,handmade papers and flowers.
Scrapping Everday Miracle's challenge for March is to create a layoput using a word to describe me. "Forgiving" because I have learned a lot to be more compassionate. It has helped me move forward and heal relationships with others as well.
Journalling:
All of us, at some point in our lives, have been hurt by actions and words of another. Through the years, I have learned to survive the pain by controlling the resentment, anger --- even revenge and obsession. And instead, have learned to appreciate the beauty and kindness around me, boost my self esteem and bring me a sense of peace. Now , I am... always forgiving.

Judy, it looks like you had lots of fun making that background. Being able to forgive is such an important thing. How wonderful that it describes your life. Thank you for joining in our challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles! =)

Judy, I'm glad that you've learned from life experiences that it's better to be forgiving than to hold grudges or take revenge. I like how you emphasized the word "always" forgiving on your page with the way the word stands out among the rest of the journaling. Great work, Judy! Thank you for participating in our challenge on SEM! :)

What a great attribute, one we should all be able to say about ourselves, but if we're honest we'd be hard pressed to say it's 100% true. Loved your blog post, and the layout is a lot of fun. Thank you for joining us over at SEM this month.
