First off a warning... I was in a very bad mood the day I made this lo so I hope it does not come off too bi*CHY. You all know I scrap when I am stressed so this is what came out of a very bad day lol
LATELY I HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING WITH FAMILY ISSUES. THE THING WITH ME IS I HAVE NEVER BEEN FAKE. I SOMETIMES SPEAK BEFORE THINKING AND AM KNOWN TO BE VERY HONEST. THE DOWN SIDE OF THIS IS SOMETIMES I LOOK LIKE THE BAD SEED. I GUESS I JUST PREFER TO LIVE MY LIFE AND LEARN FROM MY OWN MISTAKES. ALOT OF PEOPLE IN MY FAMILY ARE PEOPLE PLEASERS. THEY PUT SO MUCH EFFORT INTO BEING SOMEONE THEY ARE NOT, JUST TO PLEASE OTHERS. I THINK BECAUSE I DON'T LIVE THIS WAY THAT JAWS DROP AT THINGS I DO OR SAY. THERE WAS A TIME I ALMOST CHANGED TO BE LIKE THEM. WHERE I THOUGHT IS IT ME??? SHOULD I CHANGE TO MAKE EVERYONE ELSE HAPPY AND SAY THINGS THAT THEY WANT TO HEAR??? THE THING IS THEN THEY ARE NOT LIKING ME FOR ME. THEY WOULD LIKE A FAKE PERSON THAT I AM NOT. I CHOSE TO STAY TRUE TO MYSELF. IF THAT MEANS I GET A FEW BAD STARES OR THAT I AM THE LAST TO BE INVITED TO SOMETHING, THEN SO BE IT. ATLEAST I KNOW I AM BEING TRUE TO MYSELF. WHEN I FIRST CAME ACROSS THIS PICTURE MY FIRST REACTION WAS NOT TO SCRAP IT! IT WAS TAKEN AT A CONCERT YEARS AGO AND I HAD WAY TOO MUCH BOOB SHOWING! THEN I THOUGHT WHAT A PERFECT PICTURE IT WAS FOR THIS LAYOUT. I AM PROUD OF WHO I AM AND NEVER AGAIN WILL I LET OTHERS BRING ME DOWN FOR NOT BEING FAKE LIKE THEM. THIS IS ME. LOVE ME OR HATE ME XOXO TIA
Tia, I've always loved your style. First off, you capture REAL emotion in all your layouts. The journaling is from your heart. And hey, I love it!!!! GREAT design too!! Man I sure missed Tia layouts!!

Great layout Tia! I used to be a people pleaser and suffered anxiety from it...now I don't give a crap what others think. I think it is great that you scrapped it!

I think that is great! What great journaling!
One thing I hope to be someday is like a little old grandma who doesn't care what anyone thinks. You know the ones who come it with exactly what you are thinking (but you are too chicken to actually say it out loud)
Love it, it is so you and definitely from the heart. You really capture what scrapping is all abotu Tia (IMO).
