The challenge for the month of May over at the Creative Type is to use the word empowerment in your layout. Whether you use the word or a phrase about your own personal empowerment, it's all about how you have learned to overcome or appreciate something about yourself or your life that used to make you feel self-conscious, weak, embarrassed, but now you don't give two shakes about it.
Mine was titled Keeping up with the Joneses. I think when my girls were really young I worried about how they are doing in comparison to other kids, how my house looked, how I appeared to others. I won't even pretend that I don't occasionally feel self-conscious, I would be lying to say such a thing, but I definitely have lightened up and don't get so preoccupied with myself or things like before.
So come play along with us! Vee Jennings is the guest and has so generously donated the prize, a pdf of her popular misting class! So go play!
