It was so nice to sit down and scrap after being away from it for so long. The one page I made a few weeks ago was not nearly enough to give me my fix for gluing things to other things, and then sticking them to one big thing. Time spent pouring over supplies to pick that perfect button, piece of chip board, scrap of patterned paper. Scrapbookers know what I am taking about.
I took a picture to send to my BFF John right before I walked out of the hotel room to take the bar. I ended up liking it so much I used it for a blog post a few days ago, and I decided to scrap it to. What strikes me about the picture is how completely stress free I was right before the test. The weeks leading up to it I was panicked, to the point of having panic attacks, I was crying, I was bitchy. But the morning of? Nada. In fact, I felt like it was already over and I was already moving on.
Plus, this was a pretty big deal. I graduated law school, and while I was a year later that most of my classmates (although I saw a few of my fellow 2012's), I was sitting for the bar exam. Not somewhere anyone who ever knew me prior to 10 years ago ever thought I would be. Not somewhere I ever thought I would be when I look back on the, how shall we say, directionless early 20-something I was. I have a little bit of trouble admitting when something I did deserves recognition so I decided it needed its own page. A fancy, shiny page just to commemorate the moment. Pass or fail, I kinda did something awesome.
What special, I-am-awesomeness-incarnate moments have you scrapped lately? If your answer is none, why don't you go do that right now, because we all need to be reminded that we are pretty darn neat :)
