You Bring Me Joy

Natalie Elphinstone is guest DT at Soul Scrappers this month and her challenge is all about using your own handwriting on your layout. Now I hate my handwriting so I don't use it very much at all. So this challenge really scared me. I created my page [minus journaling] and then I just had lots of trouble getting that handwritten journaling down on the page...what if I stuffed it up...what if I miss spell a word...what if I didn't like what I wrote...yep I know a lot of what ifs!!!!
So I bit the bullet and wrote what I wanted on a scrap piece of paper, even traced around my paper so what I wrote fitted neatly...yep I know I am paranoid aren't I, and away I wrote.
So anyway here is the page that I created for Natalie's challenge.
Well my handwriting isn't that bad is it?
I love red and kraft colours together. I love the circle photos too for something a bit different.
What I used: MME Life Stories, Cosmo Cricket Circa, Graphic 45 papers, pom pom & daisy trim, leather bookplate, Heidi Swapp heart, chipboard heart, ink, string, Kaiser paint, Making Memories brads, Queen & Co brads, dimensional magic, D-lish butterfly, Basic Grey alpha stickers, K & Co alpha letters and pen.
I am really happy with all the comments that everyone is leaving here and on Facebook, thanks you so much I really do appreciate the lovely comments you are all leaving ♥

I love this page Marisa! and you have lovely handwriting but I know what you mean about being afraid of mucking up... I always write in pencil & then copy over it when I'm happy that it's all right & looks good :-)
