So Exposed - Crop Suey Challenge

This was a tough challenge for me. Crop Suey's challenge is a good one - scrap a bad picture. It could be a blurry photo or a bad hair day. I have been working on my album and a big part of my life has been struggling with self-image issues. I know that I don't have a weight issue but in my mind I do. I have never loved my body and slowly I am starting to feel more comfortable with it. I couldn't find a blurry picture as we tend to delete those (bad habit of my photographer hubby). So I found a picture of myself from Costa Rica in 2006 that I thought I had hid but for some reason resurfaced so I had to do it.

For the month of June Crop Suey is being sponsored by this fantastic etsy artist

and I got these super cute little roses to play with. I backed the rose with some pattern paper to add a little dimension to them.

Make sure to hop on over to Crop Suey to play along as everyone gets a chance to win some wonderful goodies from Blackscrap. You have until July 9th to play along so make sure to dig out those bad pictures and create a project with them.

Thanks for stopping by!

STacy, I am sorry you struggle with not feeling good about your body. lots of us do but really-you are beautiful and I was thinking when I saw your layout-she has a great body!
trust me, when you are older you will see that photo and think-dang, I was hot!
