turning point

Everyone has a turning point. I have a few... I moved to another state after college. The birth of my son was a huge turning point. My husband's job change has been a big one for our family. But, if I have to make a page about a turning point, it would have to be about having a space all my own.

Having my own scrap room has taken my love for art and creativity to a whole new level. Who I am now, my confidence in my own abilities, my love for this... it all rests in this space.


I made this page with two challenges in mind. The All About Me Challenge blog has the "Turning Point" prompt up for a few more days. Click on over there and play along! The Creative Type prompt right now is "Negative Space." I LOVE to make negative space pages, so I was all over this.

See those cool white rings? I used a toilet paper roll and an ink pad to make 'em. Yeah... I feel pretty smart (lol). I think it all turned out pretty cool, and I will definitely try this again.

Hope to see you over at these challenges. (And happy November!)

I love it, Diana! And I couldn't agree more with your sentiment. I really love your take on this.
The layout is beautiful in its simplicity, and what a great idea to stamp with the TP roll ;)
Thanks so much for playing with us at AAM!!!

Wow this is awsome - I love how you used the circles and how you did the title is great.

And what a great turning point!

Oh, I just love this lo...especially the negative space. I've used TP rolls with paint before...I just LOVE that look. Now I collect anything round I can stick in paint. Ha! :)

This is such a wonderful layout! I have to say that I totally understand what you are saying, too! Having my own haven to create is so wonderful! It has allowed me to become an artist rather than a crafter! I love it!
