Restricted!

I have made a goal to create more pages that are about me. My thoughts, my happenings, my vices, my likes, my successes and my failures.  This goes along with the idea of "embrace the face" that I posted a few weeks ago. I have hidden behind my camera for so long and I have recently decided there is really no reason to hide.  I like me, I like my life! 


This layout is all about how I need to wear glasses to drive all the time now.  Not because I can't see, but because the State of Maine says so.  Am I happy about this?  Absolutely not!  

As I put my finishing touches on this simply layered AAM layout, I realize two things about my scrapping. One of the things you might already know. That is, I tend to be a bit crooked.  I can hang a picture on a wall dead center with no measuring, but get a title on a layout straight?  Never!  The second thing I noticed, is I mess up my handwritten journaling almost every time.  It doesn't matter if I practice write it beforehand, something always goes awry. I guess being crooked and messed up is part of my charm. :)

Supplies:
Paper & embellishments ~ October Afternoon
Alphas ~ American Crafts
Glue ~ Helmar

You're too funny! I love this layout, especially the rounded corners and your title gives it character even if it's not perfectly straight!
