New Layout - S.A.H.M.

I have once again been challenged. Fortunately, this LO covers 2 challenges in one. The first challenge was from Adrienne. Adrienne tells me quite often that I should step out of my comfort zone and do a scrapbook layout about myself. So to some extent, that's what I've done with this one. Although my kids are pictured with me. The LO is actually about my becoming a Stay At Home Mom. Not sure when or if I'll ever do one of JUST myself. But this is a start. Thanks for the challenge, Adrienne.

The second challenge was from Muriel. Muriel had actually used this patterned paper in a LO she did. I commented that I loved the paper, but was a little intimidated by it and didn't think I'd know how to use it. She told me who made the paper and challenged me to find it and TRY to do a LO with it. Well, I looked for the paper, albeit not very hard...hee hee. And I couldn't find it. Muriel told me that she was going to get some more of it and bring it to me when she came to visit. Hoping that she'd forget, I thought nothing more of it :-). But of course she remembered and brought it to me earlier this week. Well, I took the challenge and I think it came out pretty well. As a matter of fact, I LOVE how the pages turned out. Thanks for the challenge, Muriel.

Well, without further ado, here it is. Thanks for looking.

Hey! I can't read the journaling :)

It's a beautiful LO. I assume the colorful paper was what you weren't sure how to use? Well I love how you did it. The pieces you used are beautiful. It brings a great pop of color and looks very nice with the background you chose.

Great pictures of you too.
