Refocus !!!!!!!

Good morning, I know its been quite here, I have been going through some upheaval when it comes to my scrapping commitments. 

This industry is a funny little thing especially when it comes to behind the scenes things, and the time it takes to do them, then of course theirs an knock on effect that flowing into family life, friendships and also to your creativity. There comes a point when the balance is thrown off and sometime you get overly invested, this I can say happened to me.

At the start of the year I picked my little word.... 

I need to allow this word to work for me and that means some readjustment and some focus out of what I want to do with my creative life. And if I invest to much time with others that doesnt allow myself a lot of time to do my dreams and goals. If I work this hard for others its time to work this hard for myself!!! 

So to kick off the new creative part of my life, heres a layout I did for the Top 50 Challenge (yes a layout for fun!!!), nothing like loading it close to the deadline I will work on that....
