This is ME - a blog hop

Mel over at I Speak Melsh set up this dandy little blog hop. Everyone involved has used the free "All About Me" class from Big Picture Scrapbooking as the basis for a project and we'll all be sharing our individual take on the project. If you've come here from Jools blog, welcome! Glad to have you hop on in! I love to have readers and love sharing my photos and scrapbooking projects, and the occasional meandering thought here. If you are starting here and want to see the entire round of projects, I'll give you the link at the end of this post to the next stop on the hop. Or you can go back to Mel's site and start from the beginning!

So without further ado, this is ME....

I need to reprint this one photo. I changed up where I was having a bit of my journaling appear. The photo as it will appear in the finished product is below.























































When you are done here, head on over to Curiouser and Curiouser for the next stop on the hop! But please feel free to leave me a little love first! :)

Lovely album - the ribbon is just gorgeous. Beautiful colours.

humel said...

Cheri, it's gorgeous! I love the way you're peeping from behind the ribbon on the front cover, it makes you look mysterious, as if the book contains lots of secrets... Thanks for sharing those 'secrets' with us! xx

I'm with you on the toilet paper! Love the dandelion photo. Thanks for sharing

Jools said...

LOL on the toilet paper! That's exactly what my entry is about!

Love the colour choices :D

Lee said...

What a wonderful project, Cheri! I laughed when I saw all the toilet paper, but think it may only last about a week in my crazy house! Wonderful photos. Must do this project :)

Elizabeth said...

This is gorgeous, Cheri. I so agree about toilet paper (and it takes up so much space).

Ann said...

Lovely project- and I've learned so much about you in just one post ;)

Ruth said...

This is lovely! Nice to "meet" you. (And I've just been trying to teach my toddler DS how to blow dandelion clocks!)

Sian said...

Hehe! I love how you finished up. And I've got to tell you, I love your project too. It's fantastic Cheri :) that photo of the sea is stunning, no wonder you wanted to reprint it and you have echoed it so beautifully with the blues and greens. Love it.

Awesome job!!!!

I had to leave another comment now that I'm awake (as I commented with bleary eyes at 2am previously). Cheri, you and I truly are two peas in a pod. I am on board with not only your fave colors... but needing that solitude to be happy and at peace, the sounds of the ocean and nature in general...I am so happy we "met" and thank you for sharing these pieces of yourself. You are awesome. So is your project! :)

Blues and Greens for me too. Lovely book you've done a fabulous job. :0)
