The Real Deal?


The real deal? OK...it's true. What you see is what you get. I don't pretend to be anything other than what I am and...well, that's it. As they say...love me or leave me. LOL! I did this layout for Anne's Do A Layout About You challenge. The deadline is October 25, is still plenty of time to join in if you are interested. Almost every photo I have taken of myself in 2008 is on this baby. Yes...it seems that I am into taking photos of myself. It's a little embarrassing and I would be worried, but in previous years there are none. Basically, 2008 seems to be the year I grew an ego or maybe it is just a good hair year. Who knows. If it continues into 2009, I will seek help from a professional. LOL!
ATC
My next project is ATC cards. I joined an ATC swap led by Jenn. I have never done ATCs before, so I am excited to see how it goes. Anyone have any advice for doing ATC cards? As usual, I can use all the help I can get. TIA!

Non-scrap related...I am tired today. Boo hoo. LOL! I went out last night with my friend and godson for dinner. I made him pose for a photo as usual. The photo is here, if you are interested in seeing it. Dave's nineteen and attending the University of MN in the CBS program. No, that wouldn't be the television network. Although that would be pretty cool. It's the College of Biological Sciences. He's one of those smarty pants and it is true he gets all that from me. Don't tell his mom and dad. :o) Last night he tried to teach his mom and I about DNA testing. After that discussion I am quite sure he doesn't get his intelligence from me, but I am still going to pretend. I love listening to him. How eager and happy he is at this moment of time. Life is good for him and I get a giddy joy in seeing that. The future is bright.

That's such a fun page!! And good thing you take pictures of yourself.. I ought to be in more pictures. I'm running out of things to scrap because it's all either other people or scenery! :)

Very cool layout!
Hope you get some good advice for the ATC's, I'll check back to see if you do, I need help - how can something so small be so challenging to make? I think that because it is small, I want to be careful to get exactly the perfect thing on there, use the smace to the max!!
Your godson sounds brillant, good job;)

I LOVE this layout!!! The design and layout is awesome and it's good you have pictures of yourself. If this is all you have in 2008, then I must be a really big ego-maniac because all of the pictures of me from 2008 would not fit in an entire album. Did I just admit that?

The two pics on the top row are my favorites. The second one...where did you get the glasses/nose? I've been looking for something like that here and can't find any! I thought they'd be with Halloween stuff. Grrr!

Denise, I love this layout!!! Okay, you've inspired me to take photos of myself. Right now my poor boys look totally "momless"...man oh man, Aleida would surely kick my ass! It's so nice to be back on your blog again...I've missed all the stalking, and your beautiful layouts!
