You & Me

GZyouandMe

“Fall is my favorite season and I just love to take walks in the crisp air with the bright orange, red, and yellows on the trees. Last fall me and my daughter took a walk at the local Metropark and I captured this photograph of her. The colors that are in the Hello Friend kit were just perfect for this photograph! What I love about digital scrapbooking is you can blend the photograph, like I did here, so you can also see the patterns of the background paper to show through. I think the paper that has the painted marks was just what I was looking for to add just the right touch!”

“For years I never took any photographs of myself. One reason, is I just did not like the way I looked. My husband has always told me how beautiful he thinks I am. I never considered my looks too much. Hardly ever took my photograph. A number of years ago I lost an on-line friend. She made a point of taking photographs of herself and her children all the time. It hit me after she was gone. What do I have for my children if I was not here any longer myself? How would they remember me. Do I want my daughters to believe me when I tell them that I think they are beautiful!! So yes, scrapbooking has helped me have more confidence in myself and my looks too. I make a point of doing selfies and then journaling what I’m feeling at that time. After all I want my children to remember who I was. Above being their mother I am a wife to my best friend, a daughter, a sister, have myself girlfriends. And I’m at that point in my life when my children are all growing up and I am also their friend. They don’t always see me as just their mother. And that feels so wonderful! Yes, with age comes confidence in yourself and at time when I look in the mirror I also feel beautiful!”
