Clues I used: Evidence: Foliage, architectural elements, border punches, windows, spire/finial shapes, gold accents; Testimony: Write a letter to my former self; hide my story behind a window.
My window opens up to reveal 8 pages of my story, which documents a big accomplishment for me. This is going into my weight-loss journey album.
Here is my journaling: This is the summer I vow to get fit and healthy. Kathy Morris and I are going to walk together. We just started our first walk on Monday. We're walking the C&O Canal and heading out at 6:30 a.m. before it gets sweltering hot.
Our first day, it was raining, but we went anyway. We walked about two or three miles, stopping only when the rain got harder because the forecast called for thunderstorms.
On our second day, we talked about going the distance--to the Monocacy Aqueduct, which would make our walk five miles, but then we said maybe we should build up to that. We kept walking and said, Let's make it to the picnic tables. And then we said, Let's make it to that sunny spot. We kept pushing on, and to our amazement, the aqueduct came into view. We had made it.
It was like a little epiphany that I can do this. Mom said the other day that I just might amaze myself if I try. So former self, I just want to say, I can make it. I can reach the final destination of this weight loss journey. I have to take it one step at a time and just keep forging ahead.
Here are some close-ups. For those who don't know, I scrap 8 x 8. I have information about products and the sketch I used on my blog, if you're interested: http://debbitscraps.blogspot.com/2012/06/we-made-it-csi-case-file-no-25.html
