All About Me?!

Well, I did it! As requested by the CTMH National Scrap booking Month Contest, I have created a 2 page layout all about me! Do you know how hard that was?! I am the one taking the pictures, not in them! I am the one scrapping the pages for others, not doing them for me! But... I looked through old photos, recalled some old memories, and found some great shots of!

I really wanted to do something different, so I thought about maybe using a quilt pattern for the page. I picked out a pattern that I thought would both suit paper piecing and incorporating pictures. I planned it all out on graph paper, then went to cutting. I did have to enlarge and reduce some pictures to make it work.

I then wanted to come up with a unique title. I looked for quotes and put together several and came up with, "I am a thread of gold in the quilt of life." I have recently studied again my favorite scripture, Jeremiah 29:11 - "For I know the plans I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end," and it brought to mind again that God is using my life in His grand scheme of things. He sees the bigger picture and that picture is ultimately His grand tapestry. Sometimes it may be rough, some humor, some creative, and some passion, but all put together, I hope my life shines like gold for Him in my small piece of His grand tapestry.

So here it is. Thanks for looking. Dina
