MDS Blog Hop - Inspired by...

To say I was excited about today's challenge was an understatement. We were challenged to CASE or be inspired by the person under us in the hop. Know what that means? I HAD KIMBERLY VAN DIEPEN!!!!! Holy cow I love her stuff, Batman! And let's just say that it didn't take me long to be inspired by this post on her blog. I never scrapbook myself. I hate pictures of myself. But then I saw her post, and I read it, and I poured over that amazing page she made of herself. But what really stuck out for me was that she said, "Life is short and I want my kids to know who I am. This includes the good, the bad and the ugly." Yep, that's it. That's what I don't do, but really need to do. So, beyond thank you for the inspiration, Kimberly. And here's my good, my bad, and my ugly all wrapped up in one page.


Now be sure to check out the other CASE-ing and inspiring going on around the hop today! Hopefully something will inspire YOU!

Amazing. You are so amazing! Thank you so much for sharing this part of yourself. it hit my while reading your journaling that we all have a part of ourselves that we want to hide because it's not perfect. I have quite the list of imperfections myself. Maybe I shouldn't try to hide so much. Thank you, thank you for that reminder! Such a beautiful page :)
