Enjoy Life

Marj says, KAYA!

I found this picture that was taken about 10 years ago and when I looked at myself, I was amazed how 10 years had passed in a blur. So many things I would rather forget, but a lot more memories will never be forgotten. I was thinking of not submitting any LO for this month’s challenge because I felt I was not into layering. But after looking at this picture and my papers, I felt the inspiration and almost automatically cut and layered the papers.


Journaling:
Growing old is nothing more than mind over matter. If you don’t mind, then it doesn’t matter.


Technique:
I did not do a lot of techniques here. I just let the layers make the page.

Materials: Foof-a-la PPS (5 pp), the mat around the photo is also a PP (The Paper Studio), MM mini brads, Primas, bling, Zots, We R Memory Keepers Precious Metals (silver), alpha brads (Paper Studio), vellum sayings (DCWV expressions)


About ME:
Hi! I am Marjorie, Marj to most of my friends. A stay-at-home-mom of 2 adorable girls, Francine and Isabella. I got into scrapbooking May 2007 after I saw some of the digital LOs my sister did. I finally took the plunge and been loving it ever since. I am also a self-taught cake decorator but I find it impossible to do baking and decorating with 2 kids clamoring for my attention all the time.
