Layout About Me

All About Me AAM#14

The latest AAM challenge is all about "Giving Up"...what this quote means to you:

"Giving up doesn't always mean you are weak; sometimes, it means that you are strong enough to let go."

Here's my take:

Title: Let go! Let GOD!
Journaling -

I had been a "Working Mom" from Oct., 1982 to June, 2005. Then I retired. It was not until a few years after retirement when I realized what I had given up during my "working years" as far as my children were concerned...their formative / growing up years (the years when they were dependent on "Mom" for almost everything). It was hard for me and for them to adjust to my being a "Stay-at-Home Mom", 24/7 of our lives. I was suffocating them with my attempts at playing "MOM" to the hilt (trying so hard to make up for all the years that I did miss). Now I know that they do not need that kind of "Mom" anymore. They are all grown-ups and have their own lives to live.

I am not giving up on being a "MOM", I am just letting go and letting GOD!

Thank you, AAM Ladies for giving me the opportunity to get to know myself better through these challenges.

Note: I used Pink Sketches #32.

Update on Twisted Sketches

Twisted Sketches#s 40, 33, 32, 31 & 30

Anyway, here are my latest layouts for Twisted Sketches:

TS#040 - Twist is "Staples"!
Title: "lian"
Journaling: Don't be fooled by this sweet, innocent face...she can be a real "bitchy witch"! ...but we LOVE her just the same!

I used my MM mini stapler/staples and EK Success fastenater on this layout.

TS#033 - Twist is "Envelopes"
Title: ID Pix
There are two envelopes on this layout -
one for some more ID pictures; and,
one for the negatives

TS#032 - Twist is "Stamps"
Title: Jog
Journaling: Fred loves to jog early in the morning...along the beach!

I stamped a tree on a white cardstock and cut it out. I also stamped some grass, a sun, a cloud and two birds directly on my layout.

TS#031 - Twist is "White"!
Title: "the graduate"
Journaling: Congratulations!

I used white cardstock for background, white flowers and centers for embellishments, white alphas for title and white ink/pen for journaling.

One More Challenge Blog

Moments Recorded Mar-Feb-Jan Challenges

In keeping with my resolve to join more challenges this year, I chose Moments Recorded's monthly challenges. Here are my layouts for Mar-Feb-Jan (2010):

March - a sketch challenge (see sketch here)
Title: "Lovely"
Journal: Isn't she lovely...I {heart} this girl.

February - About LOVE
Title: "Young LOVE"
Journal: 16 November 1975, the day we were officially "ON". F and I met in PCIBank where we both work. We started out as friends in a group of officemates. There were 6-8 of us in the group. We would have lunch together and go on group dates after office. These pictures were taken during one of our one-hour lunch breaks. We would walk from our office in T.M. Kalaw to Luneta Park and goof around. To be young and in love...

Personality Test

All About Me Challenge No. 13

When I saw this current challenge over at AMM, I got curious. I had never done any online personality test before and I wanted to see the results. I did it! Have a look...

AAM#13 - My Personality
Title: "I am ME"

According to the Myers Briggs Personality Test, I have an "ISFJ" type of personality...Introverted, Sensing, Feeling and Judging! An "ISFJ" is a "Conservator", one who desires to be of service and to minister to individual needs; and, is very loyal.

I guess, that's ME! LOL!
