All About Me ~ Blog Hop Project :o)

Welcome to my
"All About Me" Blog Hop Project


Inspired by Big Picture Scrapbooking.
Organized by Mel.
Adapted by me.

Ah! I had SO much fun working on this little project. Yes, it's little. The entire thing fits into an Altoid tin and measures 2" x 3 1/2". Everything used in this project (except the photos, of course) came from scraps on my work table. And because it needed to fit back in the tin when folded up, I didn't use buttons or anything bulky for embellishments. Instead I reached for paper punches and a Slick Writer pen to outline each section.

There are over 20 bloggers participating in this blog hop. Now head on over to see what Cherry has to share! From her place you can continue your blog journey...

Happy trails!

as I expected, it is delightful. Love the colours and the use of red cutouts and the line round each page. Spotted the buttons and your legs on a morning walk.

I love this, Deb! It turned out great! I didn't know you worked at a chiropractor's office. That's cool!

It's also so nice to read that you are living the life you love. I was thinking that the other day...and then thought 'but it's all so temporary!!! These crazy boys will grow up! then what?!?'

It's always so nice to see that you really are living a lovely life and having adult children is seriously the bee's knees. I just have more to look forward to!

The colours you have used really jump out at you - so bright and cheerful. Love the butterflies and how you have edged each page with a black pen - really makes each page pop.
