2013 Design Team Challenge #1


doing besides scrapbooking.

Hi! I'm Shannon, thank you for stopping by and taking a look at my work. I am one of the lucky members of the 2013 Mosaic Moments Design Team!!!! I am just tickled pink!!! I love to scrapbook and most of my layouts are of my travels and my time in the Navy.  My time in the military was the most amazing experience and I wanted a way to display and preserve those precious memories. I have found scrapbooking to be the most therapeutic and fun way to do that!

When I am not scrapbooking, you can find me playing with one of my many gadgets doing one of the other activities that I love!!! Yes, I'm a gadget girl! I love to read, journal, listen to music, workout, take pictures and crochet and I pretty much have a gadget for each of those activities!!

My Current Activities:

What am I reading: Mokingjay (Book 3 of the Hunger Games)

What do I journal: Everyday events, how my day was, etc.  Currently, I am using the 5-year journal prompts.

What is my favorite music: Jazz, Any/All music by Michael Jackson, Worship songs, R&B

My favorite workout: The StairMaster and Elliptical

What do I take pictures of: My husband mostly!!! He takes all of the scenic shots!!!

What do I crochet:I just started back and I finished my very first blanket!!! (not pictured)

My favorite color: Purple (note the Beats headphones and iPhone case!)

My favorite gadget: My iPhone 5, so much so that my husband calls it my "boyfriend!!!!"

First half of layout:

I love the play, pause and eject (buttons)!!!!

Second half of layout:

The poem shown here pulls the layout and story together.

I love being on my iPhone

I read my Kindle when I am at home.

My iPod and Beats are great in the gym

My husband lets me take pictures of him.

I love my gadgets as you can see

They truly represent a little piece of me!

Full layout on COCOA Mosaic Grid Paper:

The top left picture is of my iPad, Kindle and iPhone. Sorry it's dark.

I hope you enjoyed this layout and the beginning story of me! There is so much more to come.

Thanks for stopping by!

Shannon!! This is so great!! I love your teaser photo!! It really got my attention and pulled me in to look at the rest of your work! What a fun introduction to your life. I'm happy to meet you!

Love the poem!! I look forward to seeing all your creations this year and I'm glad to meet a fellow crocheter! I also do a lot of crochet and have been learning some new-to-me old things like tunisian, broomstick lace, etc.

I love it Shannon. You did an amazing job of putting a lot of information into 2 pages while still keeping it crisp and clean. Did I mention I love it? I do.

It turned out great, Shannon!

I love how much you packed into the two pages - a real picture of who you are! Nice introduction of yourself. Wish my handwriting were as tidy...

Hi Shannon - I really like your color combination and your handwriting is great. I hate mine. You really packed a lot about you in your layout. The patterned paper you chose works great with the colors used. It will be great working along side you. Great job.

Thank you all for your kind words! It encourages me so much! I had fun doing this layout, especially as the idea developed! It took a while...but we made it! Thanks again. Diane-I was in the Navy for 5 years (from 1999-2004), stationed in Yokosuka, Japan for 3 of them. I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E time!!! You learned to never to say never, I learned to adapt, improvise and overcome!!! LOL!!! The skills learned in that world really do equip us for life, we just didn't know it then!
