A few introductions + A Field Trip


                        I have a confession.

I don't really like my picture being taken or trying to write about myself. Don't get me wrong, I love to scrapbook and document my families lives. But seldom, rather hardly ever, do I take a picture of just me, and journal about myself. 

Well, this past week I decided to change that. I was so inspired with the Simple Stories "I AM" collection that I created a page all about ME ! This months Daily Diary Kit from NoelMignon.com is called Shine Bright. If you have seen a glimpse yet your missing out. It has lots of Simple Stories and MME !! Plus the colors, oh the colors. Gorgeous ! It has been so fun to design pages with these kits. 


I created an insert page to go in between my week 9 pages that I shared last week. Now it's nothing too exciting. But I have to say that I am loving how this page turned out. 



I wanted to include a few details about what I was watching on t.v. right now. I think this will be fun to look back on in 5 or even 10 years. 

Aren't these brushes fabulous ?!!! You can find them here. They are by Little Lamm Co. 


For this photo I cut out the " I AM from one of the journaling cards and used that for my journaling prompt. I added some I AM responses digitally to my photo before printing.


A few fun filler cards. All materials from the NoelMignon.com March kit.


I added one more journaling card. A few more tidbits about me currently. Another one of those fun brushes.


I encourage everyone out there to do a page that is all about you !! It might not be your favorite thing to do, but your story is IMPORTANT !! Tell your story.

I also did a page about my Daughter's Fourth Grade School Field Trip.  It was all day sort of thing and for weeks before she kept begging me and my husband to go. One or the other, she desperately wanted someone to go. It worked out that my husband took the day off of work and went with her and her class.


This journaling card came together rather easily. I have used lots of stripes for these two pages and the gold striped paper was perfect. I trimmed it to go in the corner and leave room for my journaling. Actually it is my husbands journaling. I asked him to write about their day since I was not able to make it.

I chose to highlight a quote that my daughter said that day by making that part of the font bold. It is simple to do and I love how it stands out from the rest of the journaling.


A fun filler card. I love globes and so this card was a no brainer for this page.


A simple journaling card. I asked my daughter to tell me about her day and I typed it up on this card.


I used this photo as a sort of title card.


One last journaling card.


That is all that I have to share today. Have a great day everyone !

P.S. Go out and make a page about you !! You won't regret it.
