I have never really considered making a "book" of myself. My LOs are mostly of my dd's. Cindy Lee's BOM challenge has inspired me and finally got me started on creating a 'book of myself'... thanks, Cindy (glory4him). :)
This is just the introduction page so i decided to make it simply with a photo and embellishments. The journaling i decided to keep if for later (on the 2nd page).
This was taken during the photo shoot for my college graduation (1994). I chose this picture as this, for me, was the beginning of my "life"--- my journey, my achievements, etc. I inked the edges with brown dye, handcut some parts of the flowers to "surround" my pic for added dimension.
The tag bears the first letter of my first name. I decided to leave it plain and simple as the CBX pp has elaborate design already.
The metal embellies below my photo say: MY LIFE
The printed twill across the page says: "Two roads diverged in the woods, and I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference. -Robert Frost"
printed twill- All My Memories
alpha sicker "L"- K&Co.
metal embellies (snaps "my", word "life", ribbon charm, and photo anchors)- MM
ribbons- white, baby pink (tag) and choco brown w/ white dots (across page)
