Life Experiences - SFTIO Reveal #2 - Enlightenment

Hello Beautiful people! Amy here....yes, I know I have been gone for a bit...sorry! Life has a way of keeping me super busy these days!! Today I have my second reveal for Scrapbooking From the Inside Out. Have I told you all how much I absolutely LOVE the colors in this months kit: Enlightenment?! I wish I could just take the kit and turn it into an outfit....I mean it would fit right in with my current wardrobe already :)

For this LO I focused on Life Experiences and how you learn from those. For me, life experiences are one of lives most in your face ways of learning....and seriously you learn!!! I have seen this tearing and layering technique around here and there and wanted to try my hand at it! I LOVE the way it turned out, especially with these muted colors. I did something a bit different and added punched layers and then stained all the paper with a new favorite - Walnut Crystals! So, if you ever get bored and have lots of scraps....just tear them up and slap em' on a piece of paper :) It is a stress reliever too!!! lol
SFTIO always has beautiful and unique product in their kits.....I mean, check out that flower!! I wish I had 10 more of them. And the cream wax seal - love!
Personal life experiences are always one of a kind. I have learned so much through my own life experiences. The kind of knowledge you can't learn in a text book. You have to experience them first hand. Learn from them and have a personal understanding as to how those experiences could or should...or should not apply to your life in the future. These can mold you into the you you need to be.

Do you have any experiences in your life that has helped mold you into who you are today? Something that you will never forget? I encourage you to scrap about it, get it on paper. It may not be something that you want to share, but I promise you, anything....good or bad....that has helped make you who you are today is a beautiful lesson in itself!
