The Stash-Busting Challenge Ends Tomorrow!

After two months, this summer's stash-busting challenge is nearly at a close.  It went by so quickly -- too quickly! I'm scrambling to finish my third project. In the meantime, here's the second layout that I created with the kit that I assembled: 
While I bodily survived the false nuclear attack, the fallout is still real, and takes the form of overwhelming anxiety at times -- especially when the sirens are tested each month -- and when I watch interviews from those affected that day.  A few weeks ago, I saw a trailer for an upcoming documentary about the event and was fine for the first few moments, and then ended up crying and shaking through the rest. 

This layout shares my thoughts documented the day after the false alarm as well as my thoughts, months after the scare. The journaling is too extensive to fit on a single page, so I am tucking it into envelopes -- one from "that day" and the other from "today." 

I'm just relieved to finally have been able to get this down, even though I'm still not quite at peace. 

ANYWAY...the challenge ends tomorrow.  Be sure to direct me to your projects if I haven't yet seen them!  I am loving what I have seen so far.
