"I laid in bed that night and thought about the day and how my life is like a roller coaster ride, the ups and downs and crazy turns along the way, it'll throw you off if you don't hold on tight; You can't really smile until you've shed some tears, I could die today or I might live on for years...I love this crazy, tragic, sometimes almost magic, awful, beautiful life."
I'm not a huge country music fan, but it really is a great song that you should listen to it at least once, and I'll bet you a dollar you'll tap your foot at least once ;) Some of the best inspiration I get for layouts comes from song lyrics! I Love music!
Anyhoo, on Tuesday I shared my very first project up on the Heidi Swapp Blog, and it's something I've had on my heart for a very long time! I love this concept so much that I named my new blog after it, as a constant reminder to document the things in life about myself I will leave behind. I hope you not only read it, but connect to it, enjoy it, and play along! Here's a sneaky peeky;

This picture is one of my prized possession type of pictures, it's my mom holding me the day after they brought me home from the hospital, she said it was HOTT!!!

We are limited to the number of pics we put on a blog post all at once, of course you can't have a post with like 50 pictures on it lol sssoooo I was thinnkkiinnggg since life is such an ongoing beautiful process, why don't I keep a tab up top here on my blog, I'll keep my project up on there along with tutes, tips, and tricks that I may come across, and everytime I add a spread I will update it! It might take me a few days but whatever I have done will be up and we'll go from there!
I hope I have inspired you to play along and document what makes you, You. And to ask yourself,
What If I Was A Memory?
We don't always love pictures of ourselves, and we don't always have fabulous stories about our lives, but the important part is that we lived and that we were here. That in and of itself is fabulous document material.
