A layer a day - A spread a week: week 39

Hello lovely Butterflies,

It's Saadia today to help you along with this week's challenge.

In case this is the first time you read about the challenge, check out the first blog post on the subject here, where we explain what it is all about.

You can join the fun at any time on the France Papillon and Creative Butterflies facebook group, where lots of alad spreads and in between layers get shared, which will definitely help your mojo to be inspired!

week 39

Be brave

This week’s theme is to ‘be brave in life’.

One should not be afraid of change in life and must have inner strength to stand for what he or she believes in, regardless of what other might say.

Courageous persons try to overcome their fears, take risks in life and may even change their lives to follow their dreams.

I’ve always been afraid of other people’s opinions and I am trying to change that. It’s not easy but I’m trying to be brave and follow my dreams.

I hope you will take part in this week’s ALAD challenge.

Take care,

Saadia Nawaz
