Hello beautiful bloggers and friends. Today I have my last July reveal for Scrapbooking From the Inside Out kit - COURAGE. When I was perusing around online one day I came across this sentiment: Hate is easy, to love takes courage. It stuck with me, as it resonated feelings of my relationship with my father. Many of you already know that I have daddy issues and struggle with our relationship on a daily basis. I find that scrapping about those feelings gives me a sense of relief. And that's what SFTIO is a all about. Scrapping all those inner feelings - let them out! Scrap them out! It's truly amazing.

Here is my LO - DAD:
Sometimes I wish I could just hate you and be done with it all, but you are my father. I can't help but love you and want what's best for you. To want you to actually stop drinking again and just be a normal dad. The dad you were for the past 10 years of my life until you picked up that beer again. But I doubt that will ever happen. I hope one day it will. I will continue to love you even though you continually disappoint me. I will always be here for you, for my father.

I know I have scrapped this picture before, but it's one of the very few I have of my father. It's a wonderful picture taken candidly by my Brother in law Jason Dodge Photo. I LOVE this picture because it captures my father perfectly. Jason works out of Arkansas, so if you're in the area and need some awesome pics check him out! He's AMAZING!

SFTIO still has a few July kits available if you are interested. It's packed full of some of the most current and bold products to help you scrap some of those courageous feelings :)
