Being beautiful, feeling lovely - Catch the bug ABC

Monday August 8, 2016
 
We are on vacation at Catch the bug from Aug. 6-19  so we have no challenges or new releases. But I wanted to post this card anyhow even though it's not over at Catch the bug.
 
It's Monday and that means at Catch the bug it's ABC - Anything But a Card day



It's time for another ABC /anything but a card.. And if you have been following me you know that means a Journal Inspiration page... This one really hits home with me. I have ALWAYS been a heavy person (or as my grandmother would say I sure am healthy..little did she know by todays standards) anyhow I have body issues and do not like my body issues.. I have tried so many diets over the last 60 plus years..I'm sure you know how it goes.. you loose and it comes right back on.  I have a little note at work on my computer that says "I need to be thinner love myself"..   For this journal page I found this quote and I keep reading it and know that "being beautiful, feeling lovely and offering feminine allure have absolutely nothing to do with your weight, our age or the shape of our bodies"  I wrote in the speech bubble I (heart) myself!   and I have to keep reminding myself of that. I did use this particular image from bugaboo called Girl speech bubble  as she fit the message.
I added some purple high-lights to her hair.. if I was younger I would do it. but with the grey it wouldn't look too good. It would look like my grandma's when she put the rinse in her hair, it always gave a purple tint.. lol
