Creativity Boot Camp - Day 5: Grow

~Happy Thursday all,

~Due to the fact that I'm doing creativity boot camp, I'm not doing a Thursday favourites post for the next 2 weeks, normal service will be continued the week after!!!

~So today we had to think about music we listened to as teens, in our high school years (and journal about our hopes and expectations from this time) - so I searched for some 90's ispiration and came up with this song, Kiss the Rain:

~In my teens I wasn't incredibly popular (or not at all) and I lost myself in music - particularly strong woman music. I had aspirations to be something great, to succeed in my life and not to be taken over by other people and have them dominate me. Now I still love strong woman music, infact music is a huge part of my life..... popularity doesn't matter to me - i dont feel that need anymore. I feel like I'm doing good things, and they will turn into great things and I am succeeding. I'm not the person I thought I was going to be but I'm someone different and in many ways better. I love my life now, and I know that I'm going places.

~Todays random word prompt was GROW, and this is my ATC:
~Yes that is me, in 1983, I think I was coming up for 1 or maybe just past. I did some embossing to a few of the paper measuring tapes on this. And those letters are alot more pink than they look in the photo. I've never used a cut around photo before, infact I have professed to hating it, but I have to say in the right place it can look good.
~I'm excited to see what everyone else has come up with for this prompt. I'll be back tomorrow with Day 6.
~love, Vicki xxx

I am loving your ATCs! The tape measures are especially fabulous, and I think the cut out photograph works really well.
