Treasured Hunt Challenge #1

I don't think I mentioned that I entered the Treasured Scrapbooking 2009 Treasured hunt. I was selected to be part of the 25 that move on to the first challenge. I am in serious need of participation right now so I am challenging myself every way I know how. ;)

The challenge: Create a ONE page layout (paper only - no digital)

Layout must include:
- at least one circle (3 inches or bigger)
- torn paper
- only ONE photo
- journaling....and the journaling must include "I wish someone had told me that..." It can be as long or as short as you like but must include those words.

My Layout:Wow - ok I think I needed to do this challenge. A little emotional purging.

Here is the journaling:
I wish someone had told me that... Pain is the Good Lord’s way of telling you to back up and reassess your situation. Whether physical, mental or emotional – you are not making good choices. Placing your hand on the hot stove is painful – not a good physical choice. Repeatedly throwing your heart to someone that does not want it is painful – not a good emotional choice.
