Love This Journey

I really love taking part in the challenges at More Than Words – they really allow you to think outside the box – and also, personally, I tend to move out of my comfort zones – in varying degrees.  I think this is a good thing, as I sometimes really get stuck in a rut where my scrapping is concerned.

ANYWAY! June’s challenge over at More Than Words is one of those where I’m a tad out of my comfort zone.  Check it out:

You have to use a map or elements of it, somewhere on your piece and you have to be inspired by the word ‘journey’.

Here’s the story behind my piece:

I have incorporated some paper that show maps and also compasses.  As for inspiration behind the word – well, as cliche as it sounds – I really do think that life is a journey.  I decided to use these images of my boyfriend and I, because I really am enjoying this life journey with him.  I’ve known him for about 20 years; but it was only 3 years ago (after my husband’s passing), that we hooked up.  It was all rather odd, surreal, strange; we didn’t socialise all that much (he stayed a short distance from us), but one night I decided to have a little gathering and, for some reason, invited him.  We hooked up that night and the rest is history. It was incredibly challenging in the beginning – going from friends to more-than-friends, but it has been worth it.  He’s made my “new” life’s journey so much fun and filled it with an incredible love.

Okay – so on to my layout for this challenge!
