Good times! - stick it down september challenge

Hello Everyone!

So sorry for the last blog posts!  I have been so busy this past few weeks with regular day job that I haven't been able to create new layouts.  I am so occupied with various work stuffs right now that the Green day song "Wake me up when September ends" seems to be the perfect theme song of my life right now.  Anyways, I finally had a bit of free time that I had made this layout as a way to "de-stress" myself.  I really felt the need to do something not work-related to relax.  And although many would argue that creating scrapbook layouts is hard work but for me, it is the opposite.  Scrapbook making relaxes my mind and the satisfaction of seeing the finished work motivates me more.  So I made this layout based on the sketch from Stick it down.  This photo was taken during one of my get-together's with my high school besties.  I loved this photo of me because it shows my transformation from a nerdy-geeky high school kid to a more girly and a bit more confident person.  I know I have been able to overcome some of my insecurities from high school and when people comments on my improvement, it gives me happiness.  I don't want to say that my high school life bad because I also had great times.  In high school, I met my friends that encouraged me not to feel bad about myself.  I admit, I suffered a bit from bullying but then these friends of mine defended me and made me see the amazing things about me.  They were the one who supported me and made me stand up against the people who had tried to put me down and I am forever grateful to them for being in my life when I thought that I was alone.  So enough of my drama and here is my layout.  I hope you will enjoy my layout!
