My Story

I got the amazing Open Book collection from Maggie Holmes to work with for this month.  I was so excited I loved it.  As soon as I saw the chipboard sheet and the "My Story" title I knew I would have to make a mini album about me,  I have been meaning to make one for a long time and this collection was perfect for it.

I wanted to keep the cover simple and use the pretty chipboard and flowers.

I created a simple 6x6 album by adhering the pages from the 6x6 paper pad back to back.

I started the album with one of the only photos I have of myself. I love this photo - not only is it rare but this is the photo my Dad kept in his wallet until he died and then my Mom gave it to me.  I love how worn and wrinkled it is.

I used some fun gold letters for my name and made a frame with the die cut flowers since my name means Flower in French.

This paper with the houses was perfect for me to list all the places I have lived.

I don't have many photos of my teenage years either (I really wish Iphones and Instagram were around when I was growing up!).  This is me the day I got my Drivers License at 16 and my first car my Dad bought at auction for me.

This is my Graduation photo.We had a dinner with the parents before heading out to the party.

July 27, 1991 I got married to Mike.  I can't believe we have been married for 23 years now.

Another big day was the day my first son was born - he was 4 hard years in the making but well worth the wait.

February 19, 2003 we completed our little family with my second son.

I have left lots of blank pages as I search for more photos and go back with memories and important times in my life but this is a great start. I ended the mini album with a current photo of me.

I can't wait to spend this year completing this mini album.

Thanks for stopping by.
