its all about symbolism

a huge part of the kits from Scrapbooking from the Inside Out is their strong symbolism.  Each month Rachel and Nancy work hard to put together elements within the paper and embellishments that lend themselves to the theme of the month. 

in this month's PURPOSE kit, one of my favorite little bits were the corrugated cardboard arrows.  i thought they worked perfectly with my concept for this page.  i started with this amazing quote from one of my favorite photographers Jasmine Star.  I heard her speak a couple months ago at WPPI Roadtrip in Seattle and this line just stuck with me. 

right now things in my life seem out of control and so stressful.  i honest do not like "where i am."  but i do have goals and things im pursuing.  things im working towards and i do like "where im headed."  its just the interim that is hard. 

i am glad that this kit came along when it did.  the theme was a good one to work with and perfect timing with life right now. 

so come play along with us.  think about ways to include symbolism in your scrapbooking to strengthen your themes. :)
