ME at 44...

Good morning!!  ***  Go HERE for the Sketches in Thyme Hop  :)
Hey everyone!  I'm here to share with you a layout for the latest challenge over at
 Lasting Memories!!  
It's the beginning of our September challenges.  They go all month.  Your chance to win a prize, be featured, monthly top 3 or GDT for the month of November are all up for grabs.
LMCB #206
It's all about an "Asian Theme."
Use papers, vacation photos, embellies or what I did... the infamous WASHI TAPE
on your layouts.
Here's Mine...

Journaling reads... Mom, Wife, Daughter, Friend, Hiker, Cheerleader, Coach, Photographer, Happy, Proud, Always needs Coffee.  :)
And that is just a tid bit of my life at the age of 44.

and a close-up of Washi Tape...

For the last 3 months, I have wanted to join in on the challenges over at 
a newer blog called Challenge YOUrself.  I finally get to!  You just have to include a photo of yourself and this month you are to scrap about your age right now.  There are a few more days to join for an outstanding prize.  And what better way to get YOU in your own scrapbooks.  

The colors over at COLOR ME Playful inspired me as well for my layout.  
Marina Mist, Tangerine Tango, Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla.


I am sliding into home plate with this one.  Challenge ends Noon EST today!!


Thanks so much for stopping by.  Lots of fun things to join in on.  Hope you find the time.

What a cute layout! I love that you were able to get so many photos on one page and still show pizazz with pattern and color. I never would have guessed your age either, you look great :)
