Make sure to tell your story...

As the Mom and a Scrapbooker I'm the one who's telling my family's story.

I'm also usually the one taking the all pictures.  Sometimes I'm even in the pictures.

As a scrapbooker, one of the things I've never done before was to do a layout on "ME".

I know it feels a little vain, but, it's important.  (Don't you think?)

Hopefully one day, my kids or grand-kids might enjoy reading a little bit about me.

Isn't that why we do it?  To tell our "story".

My 10 Things Layout

Last month on my blog I did a post on "10 things you may or may not know about me."

I used that post as the starting point for this layout.

I like to use things in ways other than how their supposed to be used.

For this layout I used one of the scalloped shapes from the Send it Clear card kit from Clear Scraps.  Once I glued the scrapbook paper to the clear scallop, I edged around it with a gold paint pen.  I love how it's a subtle enhancement for my page.  I glued a small medallion onto the tip of the scallop.

The paper is from the "Americana" collection from Pebbles Inc.

I also used Tim Holtz' "Chit Chat" stickers to emphasize certain words in my story.

It's simple and it's me!

Sue Eldred's Clear Scrap Patriotic Card

I used the rest of the Fancy Send it Clear Card Kit and the Americana papers to make this card.
