23rd Birthday-Starting Over.jpg

For the WWC March 2nd Birthday Challenge I decided to scrap my 23rd birthday. It was my first birthday after my car accident in November 1979. I call it “Starting Over” because I was blessed to survived the accident and was given a chance to start my life over.

I normally don’t scrap about myself but my 91-year-old aunt has been on my case to scrap more about myself.

 

Supplies Used:

LLO_SGClub_Mar2019, BMU_HappyBirthday_Collection, 400 Scrapbook/Card Making Sketches: Instant Inspiration! (ebook-Copyright:Melanie Stewart), Fonts – Great Vibes & Bangle

Me too - I think it’s helpful to scrap about yourself!  Thanks for sharing this life-changing event with us, it’s amazing to think you are barely two months post accident in your photos.  I love your birthday banner and know your family must have been so grateful to have you to celebrate another with you.  I like how you arranged your photos and you used this collection so well!   Your title is inspiring;  while I know it’s not all “roses”  your attitude and perserverance is awesome.    Please thank your Aunt for encouraging you to scrap and share with us;  I can’t wait to see more!   :)

Yes, absolutely scrap about yourself! And this life-changing event is significant, to say the least. I like how cheerful the page is with its festive papers and embellishments, very life-affirming. You are amazing, Linda! 
By the way, Great Vibes is one of my favorite fonts. :)

I have a hard time scrapping myself too, but it is important, and this looks like it was a major event in your life. Love all the colors and that sweet cake.

Linda, I agree wholeheartedly with your aunt, you should be scrapping about yourself.  Your life has been amazing - you've overcome so much more than most people.  The layouts about yourself will be an inspiration to friends and family in the future.  And you're a New Year's Day baby, that's special!
