Another layout i got done this long weekend is one that has been about a year in the making :)
And it's actually more traditional scrapbookee too.
Apparently i was using this sheet of paper as a paint palette around Dec 2008, as there's a stamped date on it. The paper was from a layout i was doing that i remember wanting to tear apart because i hated what was happening, but instead i just took off the things i could, and left things that were more glued down (like the felt lace and blingies and tape) and then used it as a paint palette for awhile.
Then it was put away and not seen again until this weekend when I was reorganizing everything and found it.
The U2 song, Running to Stand Still, has always been one of my favorite. It's really about heroin addiction, i've read, but lately the lyrics speak to me so boldly. This weekend as I was cleaning I put on all of my U2 DVDs - Rattle & Hum, ZooTV, Popmart, Vertigo, Elevation ... and during the ZooTV performance of this song i just sat mesmerized and realized it's just about someone stuck in their own circumstance and trying so hard to get out of it, but not really getting anywhere. Um ... ME.
SO, i took this little photo of me i also found in my cleaning that i had printed out a looooong time ago for the 2008 365 Challenge and it seemed to fit perfectly in the blob of white paint! Like the angel hugging me. Not to much else had to be done to make this a beautiful layout!
