no so *happy* scrappy...

Hi guys, its me, Alix, again!

I've been having a bit of a scrapping epiphany I look back through my seems that I only really scrap the *happy* things that happen in my life...and although I strongly believe focussing on the positive is a great thing...I do also believe that we should acknowledge the rest of life's events too; its the quickest route to acceptance I find! :)

So here I am, scrapping something that has been troubling me lately {if you're not into this...just don't read the journalling!}

To create this 6x12 LO I've used the Coffee House papers which have a lovely watery/dreamy feel to them that seemed just right for sharing some of my more intimate feelings. I've mixed them with some papers from the 12x12 lucky dip which is sold out now!! To embellish the LO, I've doodled around the entire edge of the page with a white pen and added 2 HOTP Really Big Brads which I've also doodled on.

So what do you guys think? Do you scrap only the jolly things that happen along the way? Or do you sometimes do cathartic scrapping like this?

OK, that's enough from me for today...*waves...* xxx next LO to share is a super happy one btw :) one of my favourites in a while, actually!

OMG Alix, this is truely beautiful, and your heartfelt journalling is amazing!! In answer to the question, I scrap what's important to me or what I want to remember. Happy or Sad!

Gorgeous Alix. Just goes to prove that Coffee House isn't just for coffee! I scrap the bad bits too - i think it helps you to appreciate the good more & it's fabulously therapeutic too. Great stuff TFS
