Here is the lay out that I did for the Dirty Scraps DT this month. We were suppose to use the word Dream and possibly spin it towards a dream that fell apart, or a dream that was never fullfilled, etc. I had a hard time with this one. I had already submitted a lay out for my marriage falling apart for another challenge and that was something that I just did not want to do again. I couldn't really dig deep enough for this one to come up with a dream that was shattered or never fullfilled. Heck maybe I'm one of those people that just lives day to day and doesn't have any dreams? Anyways I always liked this picture of me and the dolphin and I had always dreampt about wanting to one day swim with the dolphins, and this was a dream that was fullfilled. So this was the page that I decided to do. It is about DREAMS, just not shattered or broken dreams, this was a dream that came true for me.
Here is what the challange reads:
We all have them...hopes, dreams, fears... but this time I wanted to concentrate on those dreams, more specifically acknowledging those shattered dreams. Scrap about a shattered dream.Maybe your dream was to have 2.5 kids a home and a successful career. But you are divorced and raising the kids on your own. Maybe your dream was to be a dancer? Heck maybe it was to be a secretary? We all grow up and even if they are not our prominent dreams and we are completely satisfied with our current lives...we all had those dreams that sort of flew away. I love my life but I can think of several dreams I did not see through. It's NOT a bad thing, it is just life and the way life flows. I truly believe it is a positive thing because out path in life leads us on many roads, not just the ones we plan for. You can take this layout in any direction you want :)
Now go get dirty!
