Two more layouts!

Just popping in with a couple more layouts!

First up is one I created with one of Tracy's fab new templates, and a bunch of stuff from the ever-awesome Jess. Even though Matthew has had these sunglasses for ages, he still insists on leaving the price sticker on. LOL

Next up is this week's entry for the DSA Battle of the CT's. We had to use music to choose a theme for our layouts. Our theme is the Five for Fighting song "100 Years". We each chose an age from the lyrics and created a layout inspired by the song.

Journaling: Me... at twenty-two. Looking back, it seems like another lifetime. It was quite a year for me. Being engaged to Mark and planning our wedding. Graduating from college. Spending the summer in Champaign, unsuccessfully job hunting. Moving back home, delivering pizza. Getting the call to come to Dallas for an interview... the interview that would play such a huge part in the course of my future. Suddenly moving across the country on my own. Mark visiting for the holidays on his school breaks. Traveling for my job to lots of interesting (and somewhat less interesting) places. Meeting new people from all over the world. Learning new things... about telephone switches... and people... and myself. Spreading my wings. Taking on new responsibilities. Life was scary... and exciting... and stressful... and exhilarating. I was so young, and yet so sure of myself. Looking back, I’m blown away at how well I handled it all. 22 was truly amazing. Photos 1990-1991, Journaled 7-23-09.
