Back in the saddle

Fifteen year ago I left equestrian when I got pregnant with my oldest son - the huge belly was too much to carry when riding. Then we moved, got a new child, built a new house, changed jobs et etc - and I never got back on track again. Until this late fall.

Background paper: Kaiserkraft. Other papers: ClubScrap (green), October Afternoon (blue). Selfie-frame: Pebbles. Brad w/cutout: MME. Other cut outs: October Afternoon. Silver ruons: Pink Paislee. Alpha: AC. "Keep the wild..." sticker: Bella Blvd. Kraft envelopes w/chevrons: unknown

Journaling says:
"After a fiften year long brake, I found myself back in the saddle again. I knew I would be rusty, but could never imagine I would be so frightened - frightened to fall of and hurt myself again. But With Lille-Klompen (the horse's name) everything is safe and nice and fun!"


The saying on this sticker was perfect for this layout :-)

Fuzzy handcutting from an old October Afternoon collection:

Doing a page about myself back in the saddle first came to my mind when I saw the March mood board at Scrap Around The World:

I picked up elements like the horse (obvious?), the natural colors and the teal, and then the chevrons.


I have wanted to do this layout for a while, but I finally got my but in gear when I played at the Paper Issues Online Crop this weekend. One of the challenges goes like this:
Kelly's Design Team Challenge

I am challenging YOU to scrap yourself. This must be a new, never before seen project (Layout or Project Life Spread only). You can use any product you like and make it any size you like. I want to see your face on the layout and hear something about you. (Even if it's just in the comments) 


Both challenges are still open - feel like playing with any of them? Or maybe both?
