Scrappy: Finding my Voice

Something I have been working on recently is trying to speak up for myself. I've always struggled with this, ask anyone who has known me for any length of time. Last week when one of my graduate school friends saw my engagement ring, she went to look up the meaning of the blue topaz and what things are associated with it. We discovered that blue topaz is a stone that supposedly gives one strength to speak out and ask for what the need/want. I find it a coincidence that something that is such a huge part of my growth is directly tied into my ring.

I created a layout about this topic and I added some blue bling to remind me of the significance of blue topaz.
