who am i?

well i am not showing a card today, but a scrapbook page, i haven`t made one of these for ages and really need to get back into filling up my scrapbook. thing is they take so much preparation and time to make (well mine do) ~as i don`t seem to have that many photos of me (as i am usually taking the photo!!)
well vanessa`s class on "scrummy stash cafe" this week, called "WHO AM I?" ~ has got me going again ~ not completely to her class , as i used 3 photos and not one cut into three!! but enjoyed creating this page!!
used 3 photos from when i was 8 ,20 and 43 years old. used basicgrey sultry paper , brenda pinnick letters, sizzix button die, stamps away flower stamps, doodlebug butterfly stamp (my name vanessa means butterfly , so felt i needed one on this page) and many buttons from my stash. please click the picture to get more detail!!
lewis went into school ok yesterday, although very quiet, and aaron seems much happier this year (so far) ~so maybe i can relax a bit more ~and enjoy some quiet "me time"!!
hope you have a good day, there wasn`t a cloud in the sky here , yesterday ~beautiful day ~ lets hope for another sunny autumn day today . byeeeeeeeeeeeee xx

Hi Nessy
This is a very nice scrap page, I always promise myself ill do some more scrapping but never do! I don't have many photos of myself as I hate having my photo taken. Taking the photos gives me a good excuse not to be in them! Hugs Linda x

what a lovely page of memories you have created Nessy, and I've noticed lots of butterflies enjoying the autumn sunshine, let's hope it lasts a while longer. Hugs, annie x

Vanessa, this is a wonderful page! I have a hard time finding pictures of myself (that I like) especially because I am usually the one taking the pictures. I actually wish my husband would snap a few more of me; then I might have more to choose from! You've done a wonderful job on the WHO AM I? theme!
