In the world of scrapbooking, the Photographer and the Scrapbooker are usually one and the same.  Therefore, very few photos of that person are included in any of the scrapbooks or photo albums.

A few years ago, I joined a group of other scrapbookers in a monthly challenge - to create scrapbook pages all about themselves!  Really?  All about me?!  Each turn of the page in that scrapbook reveals my life, my journey; and was titled "All About Me".  I have also completed an ABC Scrapbook that shares some of my likes using the letters of the alphabet (ex. A = Anne Murray - my favorite female singer; B = Beanie Babies - I have a collection of them; etc.).  A short description of each letter completes the information about my favorite things.

So, how do I share who I am in written form, to show those who open my blog to read what I have written?  Perhaps, the following may share a little of who I am:

Who Am I?

    1. Thanks, Jennifer (or is that Jen?!). I have tried off and on to fine-tune my blog and keep adding different tabs for categories. I sometimes think there may be too many; but haven't done any merging or anything yet.

    1. Samantha, thanks for reading this, and commenting! I am so sorry that ... WOW! It's September!! I don't usually think to check here for anybody leaving comments...I did this for a couple of different things; we were challenged to think about this "Who Am I?" in a Sunday school lesson, originally. I edited and re-did it so I could use it on a scrapbook layout in an album that was "All About Me"; and it just seemed right to use it here!!

  5. I love how you did your About Me Page!

    1. Thank you! Just something I wrote a few years ago that seemed to summarize who I am!!

  6. This is lovely blog. Thank you for sharing!
