All about me - Page 1
This page has been created for a project with S'CGBM and the title is All about me.
I am more used to creating pages of other people's photos so I found it difficult to put 'me' as the focus of the scrapbook page. So to break the spell I cut strips of coloured papers and made an oval frame for the photo, making me the main feature. Oh dear, can't get used to this much attention!
I don't have many old photos and this is the first one the surfaced in the hunt for scrapbook worthy material. A school photo, taken in about 1964 or 65 shows me in my hand-knit jumper, hair not as tidy as it should be and not looking at the camera. I hated having my photo taken. Even now I not that keen.
Looking at the photo I am reminded that I liked school. A lot! I think I was a bit of a swot. The poor Sisters of Mercy nuns in the convent school tried desperately to make a 'young lady' out of me and failed spectacularly.
Now I need to get my album cover sorted and I have a few ideas I want to try out first, but the good thing is I've started the'All about ME' process
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave me your comments.
