Scrapbooking from the Inside Out's Safety Kit: molto delicioso!
August Challenge #3, Outside the Zone/Door or Ledge:
It takes the bravery to risk in order to gain great rewards...
When you have come to the edge of all the light you have
And step into the darkness of the unknown
Believe that one of the two will happen to you
Either you'll find something solid to stand on
Or you'll be taught how to fly.
When do you step outside of your comfort zone and risk feeling unsafe? Why do you do so, and if you've done it in the past, what rewards has it brought you? How did you feel being in that emotionally 'unsafe' or insecure place? If you wish to step out of your comfort zone in some way now, what do you want to do and why? How will you get the support you need to take some brave steps? For the design twist, please use a door or ledge on your page to represent stepping out of your comfort zone...
August Challenge #4, Vulnerability/Delicate:
We all have a vulnerable side – that soft part of us that feels things deeply and is sensitive, for better or for worse. What makes you make contact with the vulnerable parts of yourself? When do you feel sensitive, and how do you handle it? What makes you feel susceptible to harm or danger? Do you see your vulnerability as a liability or strength? Explore your vulnerable side on a LO with us....And for the design twist, please use an image of something extremely delicate...
August Challenge #5, Safe Place/Nest:
Safe Place: Is there a physical pl ace you go to feel safe – a room in your house, a favorite park, or the home of a trusted friend or relative? What makes that place safe – is it the people you love, or the memories you have of that place? Or perhaps, your safe place is inside you…are there memories you pull up, or a lovely image you focus on when you need it? When do you go to that place? What does it do for you? Where do you go, in real life, or in your mind, to feel safe? For the design twist, please use a cozy nest image to demonstrate the security you feel...
August Challenge #6, What Scares You/Monster:
Please create a LO about what scares you most - one or more things. Sometimes, just getting them on paper helps to lessen their power over you. For the design twist, use a dark, scary or monster image...
August Challenge #7: Bumpy Road/Bumpy Road
God promises a safe landing but not a calm passage. Bulgarian Proverb
Have you been in an unsafe or unsure situation, physically or emotionally, and come through it safely? What did you learn from the journey? Did the bumps in the road add to your understanding of yourself? In what ways? Would you go back and change the bumpy road to a smooth one? For the design twist, please use a bumpy road or obstacle image.
