If I am growing...

The theme for week 29 in We dare you was to scrap about where I grew up. Or when. I am convinced that you should never ever fully grow up since you will get a bit dull if you do. But, there are things in life which we can learn from and thereby hopefully become stronger and perhaps also better human beings. You know, those dark moments when you dwell in despair and those precious times when you are having so fun that you are to pee your pants.


I interpreted the good as the sunshine and the less good as the rain (perhaps tears on my cheek). And you know what they say? "After rain come sunshine..." I and you and everyone else need, just as every other living thing, both rain and sunshine to live, grow and bloom...


I used three Holtz tickets (as leaves), two flowers, two buttons (as flowers), green rhinestones (as leaves) and three sticker frogs (which you have to kiss in order to find your king...) from the kit. And yes, Again, I colored in a photo by hand. The trees are made after a tutorial for faux wood made by dr.Nina. Or... I made some modifications. The colored pens are ordinary colored pens which I also went over with a water brush. So... if you don't have the pens Nina is using in here tutorial - Use what you have. :)

This time I also used one little word for what I created. But... it seems not better than I mixed up the timezones and the dates and thereby missed that deadline. Well... I actually missed both. :) And we will see later today f I manage to keep the deadline for next We dare you... or not...

Edit: I am happy now. I missed the deadline due to a mix up, but look here. I managed to be included in the slideshow over if-favourites. *happy* And I managed to finish the next We dare you on time. *also happy*
