A Page of Me

It’s not something I do a lot but I scrapped a me page. I guess I should do this more often so that one day my M can read about mommy and later our grand child(ren) will be able to too. I don’t like being in front of the camera, so there’s not really a whole lot of pictures with me in them. We’ll see, maybe I can change that…

My Graduation Here it is, my graduation picture. This was taken almost 11 years ago. The exact date was 5.10.9. Wow, I feel old! Speaking of old. I’m auditing French this semester. If you’re not familiar with the term, auditing is you pay for the course but you don’t get a grade for it. A lot of time the instructor let you do whatever you want, take the exam/not, do homework/not, etc. But since it’s French, I’m participating in all but the tutoring, just don’t have time for that. So here I am, in class, with people almost half my age. I feel soooo old!!! In three years I’d be able to literally say, “these kids are half my age.” URGH!!

JournalingAnyway, I used SU, Bazzill, 7Gypsies, and DaisyD paper for this LO. The stamp is SU’s Celebrate everything and the little flower in the middle of the “a” is a rub-on from K&C Co. The metal tag is 7Gypsies and the brads are SU’s. Flowers are Prima and Spare-Parts. I used pop-dots, them big ‘uns, behind the sentiments. I like them popping up like that. I love dimensions! The arrows were from my Cuttlebug, the first die that I bought and the photo corner is SU’s punch. The paper where I did the journaling. Well, this is a piece of history on its own. This is the first paper that I got from Creative Memory when I was introduced to scrapbooking for the very first time. I never used it because I haven’t found anything to use it with until today. If you click on the image with the journaling, you’d be able to see a larger version of it and read the text.

Close-UpI loved school. I still do, that’s why I’m always taking classes. It’s a good thing I work for a university. If not I’d be broke 😀 I didn’t enjoy cramming or not being able to do fun things due to homework/exams but it was all worth it. Because of my education I now have a great job that I love, a career people call it, and make a difference in other people’s lives. I want to get my Ph.D. someday. Seems so complicated to get right now. I can’t be selfish you know. So maybe one day.

Oh, if you’re wondering about the red and white tassel. I graduated with a degree in psychology and mass communication.

  1. Beautiful page! I like the white space around the primary image.

    How true that as the main picture taker we are rarely in the pictures. My goal for this year is to force myself to hand off the camera and get in the picture too! Not for me but as you said but for the future generations. Thanks for the encouragement.

  2. Hi Savitri!

    You’re beautiful and your picture is lovely! I loved school too! I have a BS in Nursing and I actually went back for my MBA and the drive no longer was there so I decided that I’ll just be happy with my Bachelors degree. I still do love school. . .college was the best time of my life. I’m still friends with my college classmates. Good luck and I hope one day you’ll achieve your dream of getting you Ph.d. That would be such an accomplishment!!

    I like the idea of creating scrapbook layouts of myself. My kids can look back and see what their mom was all about. Your layout came out fabulous! I love all your beautiful layouts!!

  3. Love your page! It’s so important to have a record of you for your children.
    I totally understand what you mean about school. I’m another one of those perpetual students. I’m almost done with my second masters degree, this one in instructional technology.

  4. So good to see that you did a me page. It never makes sense to have yourself missing from the record of your life, but it feels weird to make them, hey? Yours is beautiful! And how cool that you are auditing French. I took it twice in University and LOVED it. :0) Enjoy! Mel
