All about me page

If you are anything like me, you are the one behind the camera, so there are few pictures of yourself alone in a picture.  Last weekend one of the challenges was to make a lay out all about yourself.  I really didn't want to do a page just about me, I have never done that before, so I felt out of my element.  But then because I was feeling uncomfortable about it, I decided I probably should do the challenge.  Its good to do things that are out of your "box", that is how you grow.  So I found 3 pictures of myself that I liked, and used my favorite paper of all time, Dutch Girl from Cosmo Cricket.  After all this is a page about me and I was not going to skimp on the things I love.  So since I'm going to be 33 this year, I wrote 33 facts about myself...I have a thing about three's...don't know why, I just do.  After I did my journaling in a black pen, I went over some important facts about me in red marker.  It also makes it a cool design element as well.  I think every scrap booker should do a page like this!  I think I'm going to get a copy made, and then I will put a copy of the page in each of my children's personal albums.
"All about me"


If you are not doing anything, I'm going to be in the Flourishes Group area on Paper Craft Planet chatting about techniques, style, favorite products etc... my hubby is gone, so if you are board and want to join me it will be at 9pm EST or 6pm PST (Thursday evening) If you are not a member to PCP, its free to join.

*Edited to add*
my son made me read all 33 facts to him.  He is upset I never told him that I changed my first favorite color green, to red.  He is a little upset about this, but he said its great, red is a good color.
Kids are the best >"<

Great job! I started a 'Me' album last year for the same reason! I only have 2 layouts in it so far, but hey at least there are 2, better than 0!

I cannot imagine WHY you wouldn't want to do a page about YOU! You're adorable! Anyway, your page is GREAT! I love it! My favorite color is red, and it always has been! You did an amazing job with this, and I think putting copies in your kids' albums is a great idea!
