These Are a Few of My Favorite Layouts

One of my favorite challenge blogs, These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things, has a different kind of challenge this month. We are to chose the one favorite layout that we did in 2009. I've done quite a lot of layouts but when I reviewed all of them, I came up with this one. It was originally done for Scrap The Music but I'm submitting it for January's TTAFOMFT challenge.

It hits home. I was being brutally honest with myself (probably could have been even more honest, though).
I was also proud of the techniques I used in this layout.

The journaling reads:

"I am overweight. Have been for a very long time. Can't blame it on babies any longer. They are 24 and 25 years old.

I am fat. The doctor said I was obese. Even that didn't sink in.

I see it when I see myself in photos. I don't see it day to day. I definitely aint feeling what I see.

That's the problem. If I can just feel fat, then maybe I'd be able to stick with the program and lose this *!#?@ fat!"

On another note, This next layout was done for the last TAAFOMFT challenge..."your favorite car". I really loved doing this one and actually was one of the challenge winners.
Journaling reads:

"All I want to do is to drive one...just once. I've been in love with vintage 'Vettes for many years. Don't think I want to own one; just take it for a test drive. This is definitely on my bucket list!"

As always, thanks for stopping by!
