Me at 63


Well this was a challenge that I wasn't sure about when I first read about it early in the month.  The August challenge at "Scrap Yourself Challenges" was to 'Celebrate Your Age'   But I put it aside to think about and then it came to me.    Every time I come home from the hairdresser I take a picture of myself on Photo Booth on my IMac because I'm usually changing my hair color a bit and cutting my hair.   This year at the age of 63 I've had long hair and short hair.  light brown and a medium brown.    Right now I'm at short length and medium brown color.    I'm happy with the color but oh so ready for my hair to start growing again.   Much happier with more length.   So I decided to go for it and print a picture each way and scrap that.    I used the Kathy Davis - Butterfly's Promise collection because my favorite colors are yellow and green and I got them both on my background sheet and the one other piece I added at the top.   Plus I loved the quote at the bottom of the page.   Create a Life you Love.    I think at this place in my life I'm very happy with myself and my life so the quote was perfect.      You have until September 3rd to do this challenge and I encourage everyone to give it a try.   If you are like most scrappers you concentrate on everyone else in your family for your layouts and forget yourself.   So here is the chance to showcase YOU.    Read all about the challenge  HERE.
