'not alone'

Hello my crafty girls....
I am sharing another layout created for Scraps of Elegance with the beautiful
October kit.

'not alone'

I found a very inspiring challenge that was all about expressing our fears on a blog called Scrappolis. I absolutely love pages that really say something personal. I mostly scrap vintage photographs, just for the sheer beauty I see in them, or happy photos of my boy, and I'm even terrible at adding journaling! (even though I love journaling, I hate my hand writing). So this theme was a challenge for me. I found this moody photo on Pinterest and right away thought about one my worst fears, being alone. Not like, in the house alone, (I can spend untold hours in my studio quite content and happily alone with my papers and paints)....I mean really alone in the world. I, like everyone else have had those moments of feeling abandoned, hurts.  It's not something I consciously think about, but that fear lurks around at times in my dreams, so I know it's real. 
What about you? 
Would you be able to create something to express your fears? Hard, isn't it? 
I really, really, was moved by the different projects on this blog, I hope you'll visit! 
The work shown for this challenge is especially beautiful and so well done.
You can find the challenge here.

Here are a few close ups:

This layout is my third created with my October Scraps of Elegance kit.
I have used the beautiful Kaisercraft paper, the Prima dangling jewel, the Prima stamp,
and a few flowers from past kits.

I added a little 2 Crafty Chipboard Frame painted black.

I hope I inspired you a little to find something personal to scrap about :)
Hugs, Lisa xo
