Autobiographical Scrapping!!!

I'm too lazy to do a dedicated 'Book of Me' but I do document stuff about 'me and mine' in my scrapbook layouts!
For years I haven't been able to do pictures of myself- just kinda had a blank about it!!!
However in recent years I've found it easier- I'm still not able to connect with those pictures so i record the memories i have about them!
I'm not a deep and meaningful journaller- just cannot do it LOL not my style! So I go for When, Where, Who and fill in any extra snippets I remember as i go!
This was my first Tim Holtz Ideology splurge!!
Did this on Holiday with minimal supplies-metal, October Afternoon paper and GLITTER!!

Again another 'done on holiday' LO so quite minimalist (for me!) Both this LO and the previous LO- have lift up flaps (Prima tape as hinges) so that I could journal lots of memories for a 4 year period.

This was a LO I did for a blog - challenge to use non scrapbooking ingredients!
Paper is wrapping paper from Paperchase, fabric is from a gown my Mother wore in the 1960's!

Lovely Basic Grey paper was perfect for this '73 picture.
My brother scanned and emailed me lots of images from slides. I hadn't seen them for nearly 20 years and didn't remember a lot of them- so these were a real treat!
We moved LOTS when i was a kid- this was my third home by age three- so it's lovely to record the homes and friends I knew back then!
QK revolution Abigail and Washington Font as title.

Oooh this was reading of the LAST Harry Potter book- I wanted to record the excitement and the MAGIC of reading these books.
DCWV paper and various stamps!

Ha-ha I remember this visit to my Grandparent's house vividly- I was in a FOUL mood and did NOT want my photo taken- Granpa- tricked me by saying there was an ice cream you can see I wasn't too convinced by his story!

I was having a circle thing!! geometric is not my comfort zone- I'm more of an 'On the Wonk' scrapper but it was fun journalling this memory!

My knitting obsession that emerges every winter!
Used plain white card for this- SCARY!!! So to fill in those objectionable blank spaces with stamps and watercolour pencils!!
LOVE the piccies of 'little Miss Acorn' with my knitted bag on her head!!
