A Little Bit About Me

I don't know about you, but I find it is much harder to scrapbook photos that are about me, rather than my family.  Mostly, because I hardly have any pictures of me by myself (because I'm usually the photographer) and because it is harder to put my thoughts about myself onto paper.  When I saw the Issue Challenge at Club CK last week, I thought it would be a great way to step out of my comfort zone.  The challenge was to use the article on Family Trivia in the July/August issue, as inspiration for your page.  I chose to do random facts about me...so here is my page and a closer look at my facts:

1.  I think Bagpipe/Celtic music is the most soothing style of music.

2.  My favorite book series is "Anne of Green Gables" by Lucy Maude Montgomery.

3.  I was Saved in July 1987 @ the age of 12.

4.  Other than looks...I was first attracted to my hubby, because of the way he worked with children @ his job.

5.  I've never met my real dad.

6.  I made straight "A's" all the way through Elementary School.

7.  The King & I is one of my all time favorite movies.

8.  I have been a die-hard Alabama fan, since the day I was born!

9.  The most exciting places I've ever traveled to are Disney World, Mexico, & Jamaica...so far!

10.  I HATE spiders - with a passion!

11.  In 1997, I met my FAVORITE musician, Gavin Rossdale from Bush, and got to hang out with him & of course, had no camera for pics!!!!

12.  I am an outgoing, introvert.

Also, for this layout I used a sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches:
