inner demons *ScrapThat! August Kit*

This picture was taken at my first half marathon in 2009. I never cared for it much because you can see all the dimply fabulousness (ie cellulite) in my left leg. I've been running for 9 and a half years now and I still find myself full of negative self talk from time to time.

I surrounded this LO with positive self talk.
Papers, lace, flowers, brads, pearls, and rub ons are all from the ScrapThat! August Main Kit. The LO was inspired by Emilie Chamel. In the second photo, I'm signing my life away to my second half marathon.

This star is leftover from a previous project. The paper is from Catching Fall by Lily Bee Design. The orange doesn't match but I like it anyway! The blue gems were also leftovers that have been sitting on my desk for quite some time.

The pearls are from the Main Kit. I started my journaling too close to the edge of the paper so I fixed up that mistake with a dainty little pink corner. The corner punch is EK Success.

I stamped my LO with my 2009 half marathon racing shoes- brown acrylic paint. The flowers and lace on the left are all from the Main Kit. The title was cut from my Cricut using Gypsy Font and Blackletter. I accented with a banner and machine stitching.

This lovely sentiment is from Door To My Heart by Heartfelt Creations.

I took the large teal flower apart and cut it up. I layered a couple of the pieces and topped with a crochet flower and roses. All the pieces are accented with Glimmer Mist and acrylic paint.

The rub ons and pearls are both Kaisercraft and they are part of the Main Kit.

Thanks for stopping by!
