I am an Addict

I have always felt as though from the moment I became pregnant that I was meant for it. I never doubted myself or if I would be able to love them the way they needed. I always had faith in my ability as a mother, even before I became one. After my oldest was born I wrote this poem and then after my second I changed the "he's" to "them's" and it though I thought it meant so much then having two children it matters to me that much more! I have wanted to use it in a layout for some time now but never could figure out how. With a combination of challenges from some great sites the layout finally came together!
I used the following challenges
The Scrappiest new Sketch #65 sponsered by Scraptacular -Sketch 
Pile it on Challenge #19 Photo inspiration  sponsored by Paper Jewels -paper choice,general color scheme
Dirty Scraps Challenge #9 Scrap the Facts sponsored by Bella Blvd - Title and journaling
Crop Suey Prompt Challenge #9 Belief Faith sponsored by SMR Stickers -Journaling, general idea behind it is my belief and faith in myself and my love for my kids

Here is my layout:
"I am an Addict"
Journaling "I am a mother plain and simple, I am nothing more and nothing less yet obviously content with being just that.I live for my boys they are my life, my reason, without them there is no me.One finds themselves completely vulnerable when they realize they have become dependent on anothers smile, laugh, there very breath.... it is overwhelming in ways I could never have imagined yet undeniably liberating at the same time. They are my laugh, They are my smile, They are my happy tear, They are my drug and I am addicted to them. Without them, I am nothing...."
 I hope you like it!
