June Creative Challenge

I totally missed May's Challenge.  I started it...even got the hardest part done, writing the letter, but in spite of good intentions.....it still isn't done. So.....at the last minute I am blogging and uploading my June Challenge. Life threw a few totally unexpected curves with some shocks and surprises but I have learned.....When you can't trace His hand, Trust His heart!  How ironic that "Trust" is my word of the year!  I am so learning to trust and sometimes....it isn't so easy. 
Back to challenge... In spite of it all "I DO have many reasons to smile" "We are all in this together" and I will still have to work on believing that "You are amazing just the way you are" in regards to myself.  Working on it but not there yet.

The background I made using my homemade gelli plate. I got a little carried away using tape and used drywall tape and then masking tape on top of that before putting my words on. The black in the upper right and lower left is washi tape. Well, generic washi tape, that is.  lol  This is not my favorite page I've done but I'm glad I made myself take the challenge.  I "needed" this!  Thanks once again, Tracy!
Just had to add.....my daughter just read my page and informed me...."This is what you need"  :-)
