Discover Yourself Challenge

I made this layout for a Discover Yourself Challenge with Soul Scrappers. It's a private group, but there is a sign up link at the top if you'd like to join the group. The challenge is closed, but those that wanted to participate in the challenge were sent an envelope full of goodies. I didn't use all of mine, but I did use most of them. All the embellishments on this layout is from that envelope The paper is from Creative Memories Uncharted Designer Paper Pack and the photo mat behind the bottom picture of me is from the same pack. I chose Holli's Creative Memories (CM) link, because I won the paper pack along with some other CM goodies from a previous blog hop that I was in with her. These pictures were taken in June 2016 a week before my 40th birthday. I added journaling on the tag- my 40th birthday visit with Laura & Doug in Nichols, NY. The top picture was taken at Watkins Glen State Park and the bottom picture was taken inside of a tow truck. I took a Greyhound bus from Rocky Mount, NC to Binghamton, NY and when I met up with my friend, Laura, at Binghamton, her air conditioner froze up so we had to take a tow truck to her house- about an hour maybe. This trip definitely reminded me of the movie, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles except I went from a bus to a pick-up truck to a tow truck! LOL! Southwestern NY is beautiful countryside if you ever get to visit! I did stop at Manhattan Port Authority on one of my bus stops/connections and wouldn't wanna live in that part of NY! You had to walk at a fast pace or get ran over. I'm a Southerner and not used to the fast pace! Back to the layout, sorry for the side note. The quote- "You will recognize your own path when you come upon it, because you will suddenly have all the energy and imagination you ever need."- Jerry Gilles was a quote given on the group website that we were to chose from a list of quotes to include on our layout. We were to make a layout or a mixed media project. I chose a layout, because they're easier to make. I did this layout in a hurry, but once I placed the pictures down the mojo just started flowing and I placed the embellies where I thought they would fit. I put the arm on the clock at 10 and 4 thinking that 10 x 4 = 40 and celebrate brad in the middle to hold the arm down since I was celebrating my birthday. It seemed like the fastest layout I've ever made. TFL! I will be in a blog hop this coming Friday and hope you will come back and join me. I'll post a banner about it on my blog soon. Have a great day! :)
