2Peas Share: All About Me Layout

Why is it that layouts about ourselves can be so difficult? It seems so much easier to simply concentrate on others in our memory books. But this month, 2Peas challenged the Garden Girls to create a layout "All About Me." I wanted to talk about some of the lesser known facts about myself in the following layout:


Here is a close-up view of this page:


You can find additional photos of this project HERE at 2Peas.

Here are some additional facts that you might not know about me (including some of those that I included in this page):


 My ears aren't pierced.

 I absolutely hate flying.

 I didn't drive until I was in my 20's.

 I lost my oldest son to cancer when he was just 13 years old.

 I've never traveled outside the US.

 I can't wear jewelry for more than a few hours because the weight of it is too distracting.

 My parents are divorced.

 I lost my baby brother just two years after my son passed away.

 I'm not much of a crier. I actually hate it when I cry.

 It's more likely that I'm burning a scented candle than baking.

 I'd watch every movie ever made of anything written by Jane Austen, Louisa May Alcott, or Lucy Maud Montgomery.

 I often dream that I'm a super hero saving the world and can fly (strange, since I hate flying).

 I am addicted to peanut and plain M&M's.

 I'm a voracious reader but it's all fantasy or YA fiction. I need to branch out a bit.

 I actually miss going to school. Crazy, right?

 I'm LDS (a Mormon).

 I decorate my house in my head before going to bed each night. It puts me to sleep every time.



Don't you want to give your posterity a realistic glimpse into your personality? While it's great to discuss where you went and how you felt, don't forget to include the little quirks that make you . . . YOU!

Two Peas created some special printables and die cut files based just on this theme. You can find them all HERE in the 2Peas store. Here's a peek at some of them:

Below I've shared the products I used to create this layout (or that would also work if something is out of stock). Be sure to search by "Me" in the 2Peas store to find what other products they have available.

  3. It's always interesting to learn something about people you "see" all the time in web.
    {I LOVE everything Jane Austen, but not modern sequels. They are sooo boring.}

  6. Gosh, I can't believe I have been reading your blog for that long. I remember reading about your brother when he was sick. I truly am so sorry you lost Mark and Joey. You are always in my thoughts. My parents are divorced. Divorced when I was 29. My ears are pierced (since I was 10) but I never wear earrings. I haven't for 20+ years. I don't like flying either. (I am sorry the trip overseas didn't work out for you). I don't wear bigger, heavier necklaces for the same reason. I got my license when I was 20.

    2. Michelle, you are just the sweetest; but I'll confess that I changed that photo to black and white because it showed the dark circles under my eyes. Bwahahahah! :)
