I am so excited to be posting my first assignment for Scrap Yourself!

Today's topic is Womanhood!

This is a perfect topic for me, because I am nearing a milestone in my life and with that becoming to know the real true me even more and who I really am.

I'll be 30 next month and although it's not my favorite feeling in the world, at the same time I also feel somewhat of a peaceful calming feeling attached to these emotions as well. Let me elaborate....you know that feeling when you are in your twenties and you know your an adult..... you act like an adult and live the daily life of an adult but inside you still feel like a young vurnerable little girl playing dress up in your moms heels and pearls???? I am finally at a point in my life where I feel like a woman, no more a child but all woman, and although I'm getting older I feel even sexier today than I did five or six years ago...not in a conceded way, but in a way that only a woman can feel. There is something humbling and almost seductive about knowing your inner self and being at peace with it.

So my layout today celebrates the woman I am today and who I have become and what I am no longer.


(All Woman)

Sorry for the glittery flowers.....they are not that shimmery IRL.....

So what I did here was print what I wrote above and taped it to the back of my page, you'll find I don't always journal on the front of my layout's. But the stuff I choose create my page helps me tell my story, for instance:

*I choose the soft soothing color palette, the lace and the doily because they represent femininity, although I have a adventurous side I'd say I am still pretty girly.
*I choose to use the parfume bottles and flowers to represent the soft fragrant yummy smells that only a woman can have.....I love to smell pretty!
*I choose to do my title in French because to me most things french exude a sexiness and like I mentioned above I feel sexier now than I did when I was younger.
*The pearls are representative of the feelings I used to have of still being a young girl wearing my mothers heels and pearls.
* The distressing represents the stresses that come along with being a woman, I mean lets face it ladies.....men get off easy!
*The bow represents the fact that although getting older has made me more in touch with  myself, I do not want to loose that sense of youth....I think staying young at heart as you grow older is importatnt.

Thanks for stopping by I hope you have enjoyed my layout and love your comments, I'm not posting close up's today because those flowers are so glittery it's almost pointless, lol they catch the light badly....
