The Thirties and Me

I scrapped people. I did it. It was a sheer act of will but I did it and stangely enjoyed the moment. I decided to just grab a few pics I already had (from my BOM) and just put together a page of me.

I decided if that US chick with 5 kids can run for VP, then I can scrap this morning INSTEAD of doing laundry. (if you have no idea what I am talking about see my other blog)

On reflection I decided to go back and look at some of my past LO's and I discovered I have done a "Me @ 3--- " since I was 32. It wasnt a calculated thing so its cool for me to see how things (me) have changed and grown.

I was particularly interested to see how each page, in its design, style and colours, seem to really reflect where I was 'in my head' at the time. I have decided to share them with you---bear in mind the one I did today is the last one; me at 35.




Journalling on above page reads as follows:


(And just a special thanks to Vicky for always leaving comments well as my other spot...means much to me.)

You're welcome. Love how you have done a layout of yourself for each year though. I have the photos but I think the journalling would stump me.

I love your layouts...I would also be stumped with journalling about myself...why is that?
