I really like how this turned out. I normally do not scrap myself, but making the monogram for the fast scrap really inspired me to use it for myself. Thanks!!

Journal reads:
Do you ever wonder about your future? Do you ever think about your past? I have always wondered and dreamed of the future, even if just for fun. I don’t, however, really stop and think about the past. I mean, I think of the past in relation to my children, but not really anything farther than when they were born. Turning 30 this year, I decided to go back to the past and think of times in my life that were happy, times that were sad, and times when life just, well, life. I am very blessed to have had a happy childhood and my teen years weren’t so bad. I wasn’t popular, but I knew everyone in school and they all knew me. I was successful in sports and always made good grades. I graduated in the Top 10 of my class and held an A average in college while studying Radiologic Technology. I’ve always had a good paying job and opportunities to learn beyond general radiography. Although I am remarried, I was blessed with my beautiful son from my first marriage. I never thought I’d find love again but I did and I married the most wonderful husband a girl could ask for. I was blessed a second time with a bouncing baby girl and she’s adored by her brother. I have traveled to places I never thought possible and even ran from a few hurricanes. I have to say my life hasn’t been so bad. I definitely know I am more fortunate than some people, and I try to remember that when I start to complain or feel like the world is against me. Could I have felt like this about my life in my early 20s?? Probably not. But, my outlook on the future is a positive one and I just pray my next 30 years are just as sweet.
