Today's DARE comes from our newest darer, Amanda!!  We are soooooo thrilled to have her on the team – you may know her as TaylorMade Designs over at Oscraps!

Change is inevitable. But “change” in its own right is not something I deal with very well. Even changes that totally benefit me can send me straight into a fetal position. Why is that??? Hahaha.

I would like to see a layout that portrays change in your life and what it means to you. How does it impact you? Do you welcome it? Do you seek it out? Do you hide from it? Do you react to it at all? How does its impact on you affect those around you? Dig deep. Be honest. Think back (or ahead) and really focus on your thought process. Focus on what you may have learned from change or any tendencies you may have when change is taking place around you. Then, boldly express that in a layout.  (All participants get a 50% off coupon to our sponsor's store -details on the blog at http://www.digidares.com)

Dare Flares:

  • You must include a title and some type of journaling.
  • You may use however many photos you like… even ZERO. (*Personal and stock photos are acceptable.)
  • Use at least one clipping mask. (clip paper or photo… or simply use as is)
  • Use at least on ink, glitter, or paint spatter.
  • Have fun and be EXPRESSIVE!
Now for some inspiration from the dare team!

and My Layout:

2009 was a memorable year for us. It was a year of getting used to being together, both of us working at home, being underfoot of each other, yet having the ability and freedom to travel at will. It took some work, it still takes some work to balance the power and peace in our household. That was our first full year of you being home. And then the next major change that I am in denial about is that Marti has left our group of scrapbooking friends, as Kristin did too, moving South. We are still in touch on Facebook so it seems like she is not far, like I said I am in denial. Facebook has changed my life a lot this past year, for the better, bringing me full circle with my childhood friends. I wish for balance.
