Life is a Journey.....

Every now and then, I like to create a page about me. I want my children to know me, understand me, not as only their mother, but as a person. I want them to know that even though life kicks you right square between the eyes sometimes......you need to get up, dust yourself off, and put a smile back on your face. It is hard. Very hard at times. I've had my share of heartache. But we have a choice in life......live sad.....or live happy. I choose the latter.




This page was created using Noel's Lemonade Stand kit. (only 2 left!) And just an FYI....her new kit, Sun-kissed is going up for sale on June 5th! Take a peek HERE if you want a glimpse of what's inside!
Thanks for stopping by! Crazy busy here in the Kovack household.........but it's all good!

I like to scrap book pages about me too, for the same reasons, but for some reason every time I make a page about me, I feel very narcissistic! Lol! It must be the mother in me.

I LOVE your page. I love the layout, your journeling, the photos, and the butterfly with the buttons. Beautiful work.

I LOVE this, Michele! Perfect in every way. Would you mind sharing with me the font you used for your journaling? It's the same as my great-grandmother's old script typewriter--I've been looking for it everywhere!

Hope your day is wonderful...

Julie
