*About Me Mini Challenge*

This is not my typical subject to scrap but, I enjoyed it very much this time around. I really took my time creating my page. I spent my whole morning painting and crackling my background pages. I don't know if you can tell but my back ground papers are from Que Sera Sera from K&Co. I then finish my page slowly through out the day when I could. A lil here and a lil there and tonight at 11: something pm I finally got it done. I am proud of my page. I used the vintage book pages to symbolize the book of me type thing. It's my story, so I think it if fitting to use the vintage book pages.
The tittle is something that I truly feel describes me.
A close up pic of the crackling I did with my background papers. That was really fun and I have 2 or 3 more pages with that technique coming up. And I cant wait to finish them up.A close up of the layering of the vintage book pages.
The flower cut out on top of my page is really a tag, disguise as part of the back ground cut out flowers. Worked out really good. Yay!
And here is my tag up close. Journal reads:
Memo
I love w/ a passion
I wear my heart on my sleeve's
I always give 100% of myself
I will act a fool to make you laugh
I don't take myself too seriously
I hate saying "NO" or don't know how
I cry over everything
I don't take anything for granted
