Man, Karen can really pick some great challenges - ones that are really challenging. This week's challenge at Lasting Memories is It's All About You. I have avoided the camera for as long as I can remember. I have even gone so far as to tear up any photos that were taken of me. In the last couple of years though, I have discovered that it may not be such a bad thing to preserve my memories, or memories of myself for my children.
Now, allowing photos and creating a page about myself are 2 different things. The first page I created was with photos of me when I was almost 3. But I decided that's not what Karen intended, so I had to rethink. Stew had taken a few photos of me last year, that I am not over fond of, but I saved them. So I picked one of them and created a page.
For this page I needed some inspiration. I chose the current sketch from the Scrappiest.
I usually try to keep very close to the sketch, but this time I only used 1 photo. I used the extra space for more journaling.
I hope you will follow along this week and CHALLENGE yourself to create a page about you.
