Scrapbooking from the Inside Out

I recently found the blog Scrapbooking From the Inside Out while looking for quotes for a friend and I love it for so many reasons.
This site is an inspirational source, kit club, and online community for scrapbookers who want to explore their inner lives and deepest thoughts and dreams.
While not a substitute for real therapy SFIO is a place to get your brain working on things you may not have thought about before or in a long time. I wandered through the inspiration section for the word Discovery and felt compelled to scrap when I got to the section on Baggage.

The quote, "Your dreams can't take flight if you're weighed down with too much baggage" is mine but I like it just the same. The larger clouds have journalling on them that identifies baggage that may be keeping me from moving forward in certain areas of my life. I made this page for me and didn't worry about anyone else seeing it. So here I am showing it to you, well not all of it. I have blurred out those journalling blocks because honestly my baggage is no one else's bi'ness.

It is rather nice to make a page just for yourself.

I know that Scrapbooking From the Inside Out isn't going to be helpful to those only interested in documenting the stuff that happens to their kid. Not going to be of use to those who only want to share the news. But if you are at all interested in sharing who you really are with your family (perhaps you could put it away and not let it be opened until after your death) this is a great site.

If you don't want to scrap your feelings it's still a great site for quotes and music - they have a soundtrack for each word they feature and I scrapped this page while listening to some really nice tunes. So go for the quotes, go for the music, go for the kits (which I didn't use because I don't have room for anything else in the studioffice right now) just go.

Now for the details on this page.

The base is Stampin' Up! textured tempting turquoise, the clouds are whisper white cardstock cut with the Papertrey Ink cloud die, the patterned paper is K & Company Actopus to Zelephant.
The stickers spelling out FLIGHT are from Cosmo Cricket.
The luggage stamp is an old one from the Challis & Roos line by Inkadinkado. The plane is a white foam Thicker that I've had for ages. I inked it with Versamark then embossed with Ranger embossing powder in red.

Happy Crafting,
