Scrappy: 1985

This week's challenge is up at the All About Me Challenge Blog- The Year You Were Born. I originally planned to do all of this fun facts about the year I was born, but then I found this picture of my grandfather holding me when I was a newborn and all of these thoughts flooded into my head.
I thought about how wonderful my family is- and I'm not just talking about my blood relatives. I am blessed to have the most amazing step-family in addition to my already awesome birth family. One of the best things about my family is that they support me no matter what. They have allowed me to make mistakes, supported me through all sorts of decisions, and constantly remind me that being me is all they will ever ask of me. So while this layout may be a little about family-it's also about me being free to be myself and I couldn't ask for a greater gift from my loved ones.

Bazill Cardstock, Lily Bee Design Paper, Kaiser Craft bling with Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink, Prima flower, and American Crafts ribbon.
