You Can Climb A Ladder Up To The Sun

So yesterday I didn’t have much to say
but first
This page
For the Aussie Scrap Source Style Lounge Freestyle Whimsy challenge


I’ve been a long time admirer of Danielle’s work and was so happy to see her picked up by the Scrap Source team


the journaling to complete my story


Said I was going to talk…
I just love these challenges
Anything that gets you to create
I just love that they push you to create
Push you to create in and out of your own little creative box
What I have found interesting is that the last 2 challenges, for Aussie Scrap Source, were probably the styles closest to mine
But I found that when I created the pages, for these challenges, I kept second guessing myself
Rather than letting it flow I found that I would stop and contemplate the process
Bad move
It meant that the process became forced
The thing that I did learn, about myself, is that if I think that I am limited then I won’t achieve anything more than what I am limited by.
I need to turn this around
I found this quote
“Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.”
by Jamie Paolinetti
It is so true
I need to see these limits as possibilities
I already see the possibilities to create but it’s the way in which I then create that then gets limited
I then wonder
what, in life, do we start to limit and what potential would we have if we were to remove those limitations
what limitations do we put on other people and what would happen if we were to remove those
I want to live, and create, with possibilities not limitations
I want others to see the possibilities in their own lives and I don’t want to limit them with my own limitations
above all else I do need to be myself, need to find myself in all things and need to be true to myself

told you I would talk

Pin It Now!


  1. Great page full of interesting details

    Like that theme of possibilities

  2. i think you thought and then over thought and instead of thinking you just thought..
    but i also think that i pretty much love this.. love the colours and the textures you've created by Misting?? .. superb.. so stop thinking although i do think i understand what you are thinking... so dont over think and just play.. i think.

  3. very nicely turned out

  4. I love this...

    I agree, too! Creating two pages that defined 'my style' - which is normally a completely accidental style that I can't help - kind of did my head in at first. But then I got into it.

    Yay for removing limitations and just having a play :)

  5. OMG Sharmaine I absolutely LOVE this! Everything looks sooooooooo cool!

  6. Wonderful lo. I am a great admirer of your style and I would not like you to limit yourself. The challenges are a great way if you can manage to go with the flow as they
