Challenge #36 It's all about you Lasting Memories


Hello all,

Today is my first day of being featured here at Lasting Memories as one of the newest members of the Design Team. Whew hoo!!  It is pretty exciting for me... :) 

This challenge (all about ME) was not an easy "task", as like most of you, my layouts usually center around others, not myself (& I am the one usually taking the photos)-- but...once I got started, I could hardly make the pen stop writing.  I never knew I had so much to say about ME. ha  It turned out to be so much fun!  Thanks for the great idea, Karen!

I wanted to make all my photos center around what I love most. (No, not me-ha)--but everyone in my life, that, I feel so very fortunate to have...  My kids, parents, friends, and family...  It was fun to go through photos, looking for ones, that brought back a happy memory or two.
I used my nick name for my inspiration jump off, and my favorite tool, a PEN! :)  I incorporated a lot of words, that I think reflect the true me.  (My husband read this last night, and said, I think "sarcastic" should have been bold)--hum, wonder if he was getting at something? :)  Since I am a doodler,  I had loads of fun, adding words that started with the letters in "I AM SAM" to this layout.  I added a favorite quote of mine by Ralpho Waldo Emerson, {I even have a bracelet with it, I love it so much}. :)  And, lastly I put a list of some of the things, I would want someone to know about me--the person that I am. 

I hope, that my mish mash of MUCH ado about ME, can perhaps inspire someone else, to sit down, and do a layout about themselves.  I think once you get your brain around the whole "What, Who, ME" thing, you will enjoy every minute of creating a layout about yourself.  It is really quite FUN!  And, I would love to see WHO YOU are, and what you create!

I am truly inspired and humbled to be part of such a wonderful D/T team here at Lasting Memories, and I cannot wait to share more layouts with you, and see what layouts you share with us!
