On to this weeks layout challenge, this week Amanda challenged us to Scrap your age! Come on, don't be shy... scrap a few things about you and what it's like to be you at age...whatever.... :)
Here's the Layout Team's take on the challenge to inspire you!
I'm turning 36 this month...time to journal some thoughts...
This is me at 32 years old. This challenge got me thinking that this is roughly the same age that my girls will be when they have young children too. I wanted them to know, and me to remember what my life was like in my early thirties ...my personal fears, worries...issues, thoughts..the way I see my self etc. At the back of this layout I wrote a "Note To Self.." type of journalling, where I am talking to my self. I'd like to think that leaving these messages for my girls through scrapbooking will help them understand their mum better....maybe see the reasons for some decisions we made etc. I only WISH I knew these things about my own mum when she was my age now. She tells me, but its not the same as being able to read it through her own words.
I found this challenge both difficult and rewarding. I'm not really photogenic, so it's hard finding a photo to begin with. This particular photo must have been taken by one of the children - although I'm smiling, I can tell I'm worried about something - probably that said child will drop the camera!
Our Guest Designer for March is the very talented Pati, here's what she came up with.
This week Julie from the design team has joined us with her take on the challenge.
