Happy Tuesday! Welcome to the All About Me blog hop! If you’re hopping with us, you should have arrived here from Robin’s blog. If not, but decide you want to join in, you’re welcome to start at Shelley’s blog. Go check it out…she has some great blog candy!!
So, right up front, I must tell you that making a layout about myself is always a challenge for me, like it probably is for most of you. We wrap ourselves up in our families and especially in our children, and sometimes forget our own identity in the process. Although making a page about yourself, or doing a little journaling, isn’t always easy, it does always make us stop and examine things about us just a little. Who am I? What do I like? What identifies me? Not always comfortable questions to answer but certainly therapeutic in the long run!
For my project, I decided to a two-page layout in my Smash*book. I love Smashing and have several books. I’ve decided to devote one entire book to being just about me. I figured that one of these days, when I’m long gone, it will be a priceless memento for my kids. My mother left a journal when she passed, and we wouldn’t trade it for anything.
My favorite color is purple, and I love purples and blues together, so that’s the predominant colors I chose to work with. Since I’m a musician, I chose to use the music quotes and the guitar stamp. I was married in the winter, thus the cute snowman cutout. The butterflies? I just thought they were pretty!
This was a built-in question page in the Smash*book, so I just filled in the answers…easy as pie!
I found a few stickers with descriptive “me” words and added them to the mix.
I hope you liked this little piece of me! Miranda is next. I’ve included the whole line up below, just in case you need it!
