This is the one and only page that I have ever scrapped of me as a child. I really need to get out the 10 photos of myself when I was little and scrap them! LOL Seriously......I am a middle child. My mom and dad have countless photos of my older sister and they have tons of photos of my younger brother. BUT for some reason, they did not have a camera when I was born. So, the only photos that we have of me were either taken by my grandma or one of my older cousins. This happens to be a photo that my cousin Doug took. The other photos that he took of me in this chair are black and white and are pretty sweet, if I do say so myself!
I am not really thrilled with the way this photo turned out of the page. The colors are so much richer in person! I used the Caprice paper pack for this page along with the matching stickease for the letters and the flowers on the border and in the corner. The ribbon is Twilight, but is retired.
I love the way this page turned out!! Do you ever have pages like that? Those are the ones that you keep going back to and everytime you see them you love them all over again? LOL I get a big kick out of going back through my scrapbooks from when I first started scrapbooking. Some pages are still just as cute to me now as they were when I was putting them together. Some pages on the other hand are lucky to still be in the album!
Thanks for hanging out with me today!
Make sure to stop back by!!

A page of me!
Life has a way of throwing us curveballs when we least expect it. What we do and how we react to those curveballs, is up to us. Who would have thought that at the age of 45 I would be starting my life over, reinventing myself and finally figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Well, ALMOST! lol I want to play with ink, paper and ribbon and share Stampin' Up's wonderful products and opportunities with you!! I am THRILLED to be part of this company and am looking forward to seeing where the wind takes me. Happy Stamping!!
