Ready, Set, Live!

You know, I didn't go skiing until I was 30, because I was afraid I'd fall down and break something. I don't care for activities like windsurfing, waterskiing, scuba diving -- they just freak me out too much. And, to tell you the truth, I haven't put myself out in the scrap industry too much because I always am worried that the "No"s I'll encounter will damper what I so love to do.
This kind of explains the LO I want to share -- I was super pleased with the way it turned out. I've never actually posted a One Little Word challenge before, and maybe this time I will take a risk and throw my hat in the ring.

It was inspired by the current OLW challenge, the free Daisy Bucket rub on that I found in a goodie bag, and by my Slice! It's a layout about how, even though I tend to be afraid of a lot, I have decided to take risks and enjoy the things in life I may be afraid of.


The layered flowers were all cut with the Slice Noteworthy cartridge and embellished with a decorative brad and Sticklez:
I applied the poem rubon onto white cardstock and cut out each line...I didn't want to use it in a block shape:The key is from a MR chipboard keychain, painted with metallic silver paint:The title is Thickers, accented with Sticklez:

TFL!
