That Girl

Hello! I played along over at Once upon a sketch's  October challenge. The challenge is to scrap the girls in your life. For my interpretation, I used a picture of myself when I was about 20yrs old. I used modeling paste and watercolors for the flowers. I don't usually use much orange but I really like the pink/orange combo. My journaling in on the back. It reads:

The things I could tell that girl. The trials and tribulations she will go through. The doors that closed. The ones that broke her heart. The better doors that opened. The times she wasted worrying. The other times she didn't worry enough. The people that will make her stronger. The people that will only tear her down. The path that she walked when surely the other may have been easier. In the end, I'm not sure I would tell her anything. Her heart led her here and here there are no regrets. Only lessons learned that make me who I am. She can stay back there without any clues while I live for today. 

Thanks for stopping by!!
