  • "Family life is full of major and minor crises -- the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce -- and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It's difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul." -Thomas Moore

AAM Digi Layout and UPS

Over on the Fiskateers blog, Miss May issued a challenge the other day.  I decided to have at!  You had to use one or both sides of a sketch she provided, and you got bonus points if you did an AAM layout (All About Me).  So here is mine:

All of the digital elements used in this layout come from Scrap Girls freebies they send out a few times a week in their great newsletter.  I used Microsoft Digital Imaging software (I have a free trial version pre installed on my computer) to put it all together.  I finally got over my fear of using pictures of myself in a layout!! Yeah!!  None of these photos is my best, but what the heck right!?

I also got some fabulous excitement when I finally got home from all my running today.  The UPS man loves me!!!!!!!!!!  He read my note and actually took pitty on me.  I have my Sizzix box!!! Can’t wait to play tomorrow!  I got my AlphaBars, my Sizzlet Machine, and my Dogwood die, that I ordered for my larger machine.  Whooohooo.  UPS is my favorite today!!!

Ok, off to relax a bit before getting some housework done…..

Have a blessed evening, and stay warm and dry if you are in the snow!

  2. Glad you’re enjoying the Scrap Girls newsletter. Love the journaling on this layout and glad you used photos of yourself. I really like how you put the photos coming out of the envelope.

  3. hi there! a fellow fiskateer checking in. your layout is beautiful, great job! i have a hard time seeing the sketch on the blog, so it helps to see what others have done and i can work from there! i hope to start and complete mine by wednesday!
