Challenge #3 (Post your layouts here)

Ok ladies. I have been thinking about the next challenge and I was thinking that we are always scrapping our kids or our DHs or other people in general. We never (or at least I never) scrap ourselves. I think it would be a great challenge to see some layouts about you.

It can be any color or any theme, but it be about you with at least one picture of yourself in it.

I guess it can start tomorrow (June 8th) and run until friday June 22. Then we will open it up to voting.

Rules:
1. Please include a brief explanation about how the scrapbook page reflects yourself.
2. Take your siggys off as usual please Smile

That's it. I can't wait to see what you come up with! Smile

Oh boy....a page of me. :shock: This one is going to be hard. I am looking forward to it though. I have taken some cute ones of just Ruthie and I. Does it have to be me alone? Or can someone else be in the pic with me?

What a great idea. You are right of course - I've only done one page about myself and that was a pregnancy page in Andrea's birth book Smile I haven't even finished it yet. Smile

Until we get the editing button back, we will post them here and then when the voting time starts we create a poll and copy the layouts over.

I'm not sure. Brighteyes would be better to explain that.

I just seriously don't know why. I know she has been trying to get it back for us.

I think it's pretty obvious how it reflects me. Biggrin I know you didn't ask, but my biggest challenge was coming up with words to describe myself.

Here's mine...
It pretty much sums up my attitude about life. My life has gone in so many different directions that I never could have imagined. Instead of worrying about it or fighting all the changes and challenges, I have decided to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride Smile

can it be a page that I've already done about myself, pre-challenge? or does it need to be done in the challenge window?

funny though, as I had an idea for a page about me while driving home from AC Moore tonight, and I hadn't even seen this thread yet!

Okay, did mine tonight. It's from the very first time I went skydiving. Smile I printed the words to Roger Day's Parachute Girl (he's AWESOME, like Jimmy Buffet for little kids) on a transparency over the center picture. The adhesive is still wet, which is why it's streaky. Will check it again in the morning and may try another photo of it, as the streaks bug me. It's a really simple page, with the song on it, I couldn't do much more with it.

Here's the song words in case you can't read them

Parachute girl flies over the world and she jumps UP and out of her airplane
Parachute girl flies over the world and she jumps UP and out of her airplane

She’s not afraid to jump from a plane and into the sky
With her parachute on and her helmet too
She’s ready to fly
She scares her mother and her brother half to death
They’re holding their breath

Parachute girl flies over the world and she jumps UP and out of her airplane
Parachute girl flies over the world and she jumps UP and out of her airplane

She likes to pretend she’s some kind of bird
Soaring high above the clouds
She pulls the cord and her parachute pops open
Now she’s floating down, down, down, down, down
Gently to the ground

Parachute girl flies over the world and she jumps UP and out of her airplane
Parachute girl flies over the world and she jumps UP and out of her airplane

I had a really hard time with this b/c I am ALWAYS behind the camera! Lol So, I just took a few close ups of Ruthie and I. Here it is. You ladies have done a great job!

The poem says.....

"Having a daughter means loving
more than you knew you could love
It means giving
more than than you knew you could give.
It means receiving
so much more in return...

Having a daughter means knowing
that whatever else
you did or didn't do,
you gave the world
something beautiful."

Here is my challenge,

Hardest part, talking about me and creating a layout about me.

I had to take 2 pictures, otherwise I was getting a glare on my camera.
