And I think my favorite LO so far.
I saw a fab idea from Elizabeth Kartchner and I want to tweak it for us a JuJu Bee's Challenge! My take and challenge! As women, we are harder on ourselves than anyone. We are constantly reminded of what we should look like, things we should buy, and for some of us, the type of mom we should be. I really try not to get caught up in all the buzz and try to be the best me, accepting that I am not perfect and I will never be. So make one for yourself! Layout title: Just Me. Use 1 to 2 pictures of yourself, not being "perfect", just everyday you. Then around the picture layout lots of journaling spots. Think all your random thoughts on a different spot. On the spots, journaling that makes you, YOU! Your thoughts of your "faults" and why they are okay.

So exciting for me to use pink :) I don't get much of that around here :)
So share- what are some of your "faults" that you are okay with???

Sammye Jo, I love the "Just Me". I have been contemplating creating something similar for me for a while now. I realized that even though I love to scrapbook my hubby and boys, I don't have any pages dedicated to me.
