I asked The Groovy Chicks to tell me about their layouts that line down the blog. Here is what Heather had to say :)
When I first started working on this layout for the first page of my "Book of Me" album, I had no clue what I was going to title or what I was even going to journal about. So I started asking myself, "Who Am I?", "What do I want people to remember about me?". What I ended up with is on the journaling tag hidden under the photo.
"She's Not Just a Pretty Face" is a fave song of mine by Shania Twain. I first heard it while at a Sarah Palin convention. Instantly had it downloaded onto my ipod and it still is one of my faves. That is how I came up with the title!
The journaling talks about how I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a grandaughter, a coworker, a scrapbooker, etc. etc. but most importantly, I am a Christian woman! I am a daughter of Christ and every day I am seeking His will for my life! Therefore, I am NOT just a pretty face, I am SO much more then that!
I must say that I really enjoyed doing this layout!! Not because it is about me, but because with a house full of men, it was nice to actually get to use pink and other girly colors!!! LOL!
(Thanks to my stepmother for this picture of me!!! She is a photographer and was taking pics of my kids at the apple orchard! She conned *hehe* me into posing for a pic and this is what we ended up with. I really liked this pic . . . after I cropped my body out of it!!! LOL!)
