Hello, My Name Is …

How often do you make a point to include yourself on your scrapbook pages? We always seem to take note of what is happening in the lives of our family members, but we don’t include ourselves in those stories as often as we should. This week challenge yourself to get out from behind the camera and have someone take a picture of you, then record what is going on in your life at the moment … something you are thinking about, your hopes and dreams, or something that made you laugh. We promise that you will be glad you did.

Growing up, I remember being jealous of all my friends with names like Melanie, Melissa, and Jennifer because they always came to school with super-cool, personalized stuff. I just didn’t have that popular of a name to find a mug, keychain, or stickers with “Jana” on them. Recently, my husband and daughter were grocery shopping and came across bottled water called “Jana.” They bought me a case of it and brought it home. I was as tickled as could be! I FINALLY had found something with my name on it!

Theme Park Food!

Summertime is the perfect time to visit your local theme park! As a girl, I remember that one of my favorite things about going with my family each year was getting the opportunity to try all of the fun treats and food! I particularly had my eye on the cotton candy. It was such a treat to carry around my very own and I didn’t even mind the sticky mess it created on my face and fingers. I’m sure my parents didn’t feel the same way, but I had a blast diving my face into that soft pink fluff.

Along with the darling western images contained on the County Fair cartridge, there are several fun images of carnival food . . . perfect for scrapping those theme park photos or creating a fun invitation to a carnival-themed party. Below is a page I created using the soft drink, corn dog, and cotton candy images.
