Lasting Memories Challenge #36 "It's All About Me"

Good morning all,

So today is my first day being featured over at Lasting Memories as one of the newest members of the Design Team. I am pretty excited about this new adventure that I am participating in, BUT, I have to admit that when I got this week's assignment I asked myself, "Self, what did you get into?" Oh yes, I do talk to myself quite a bit. My mom always says though, as long as I don't answer myself I'm okay, but I do think I've done that a time or two, hehehe.

This week's challenge is all about "ME" and I don't do well with me. hehehehe. I am very self-conscious if you can believe that.? I am always looking for a fault in ME, and I never think too highly of myself. When I got picked as a Design Team member it really lifted something in ME, but nevertheless I really had to dig deep down into myself and tell myself there is nothing wrong with ME and that if I wasn't good enough I wouldn't be where I am today...So ME is just fine. This isn't exactly where I wanted to go, but it's a part of ME. I am usually the one behind the camera, so there aren't very many pictures of ME either. In fact, this is a staged one for my Blog bio, bwwwaaaahh.

My favorite color is Purple, I love making paper roses, I love buttons (and you can find at least one button on most of my layouts), one of my favorite phrases is Live, Laugh, Love. My all-time favorite flower is the Lily of the Valley, I love elephants (and am wearing them in this picture), I love bling and of course the most important thing in my life is my FAMILY. My 3 favorite craftings are Scrapbooking, Cardmaking and glass etching. So there's a little bit about ME. After looking this layout over and over I am actually pretty happy with it and I hope you enjoyed a little bit about ME.

I hope you join us over at Lasting Memories and challenge yourself to make a layout about "YOU", you might be surprised what you learn about yourself.



  1. Beautiful LO! This will be treasured forever! Scrapping pictures of yourself is important! We never seem to want to do this.

  2. Great start to your DT term!! This is a fab LO and I've always been told the same, in fact, I'm sure we ALL have! LOL! It's when we start having full conversations that I think we should be worried! Gorgeous LO and love the color pallet!!

  3. HI Brenda! I thought I commented already...but maybe I thought I did and got distracted. Anywho.. So glad to be creating with YOU!! I have seen your submissions for a long time on Lasting memories... and you always do something new and different. Love your purply layout here. It's a great way to get to know you. And I think finding fault but then realizing how silly that is, is a wonderful hurdle to overcome! You got this far!! yay for you!! Have a great rest of the week.

  4. Great job Brenda. I love your page. You did a wonderful job with your purple rose. I have the same feelings about myself as you do. You did a wonderful job overcoming them to create this fabulous layout. I look forward to working with you.

  5. Love the colors on your pretty page! And, thanks so much for the very sweet comment on my layout!!! :-)
