How many of you actually scrap about yourself? Most times we as scrappers scrap everyone but ourselves. Well this is going to change in 2012! Each month during the year I will be hosting an ABC of Me Challenge. (Remember the ABCs of Me, questions we did last year?) Well here is where they come into play.
The ABC's of Me challenge is so much fun. You scrap a page about yourself using each letter of the alphabet and end up with 26 awesome pages about yourself. Each month you will get two letters to scrap about yourself with.
This week's letter is the letter "E", please create a layout about yourself or something about you that starts with the letter E.
This is a nickname given to me by my husband as I forget things very easily. An etch-a-sketch can be erased by shaking it when finished with it. He jokes that I have bumped my head, or got up too quick, and that is why I have forgotten something. Just like an etch a sketch. He can laugh, I don't get offended very easily, and I actually think it is funny too. Why take life seriously. My kids will now have a keepsake of this and remember this funny story for generations. He has a funny name too....but that is a whole other story...lol
I began scrapbooking approximately 9 years ago when my son was born. I scrap whenever I can, and make time for an annual scrapbooking retreat to the country for the weekend to catch up with friends. My friend and I take turns in hosting scrap weekends at each other’s houses...although not as often as we would like...LOL.
My main subjects to scrap are my 2 children...Zack and Marnie. They both provide many 'special moments' for me to photograph and scrap. My aim is to create albums full of wonderful memories for them. I love that scrapbooking helps us remember special moments that might otherwise become forgotten over time.
Scrapbooking for me, is about capturing the memories and/or feelings of the moment...it is not about altering my photos to make my children appear 'more beautiful' ...they are already beautiful, just the way they are.
I don't have a particular style and I like to try new things. I am beginning to try out new sketches and challenges.
