AAM#1 UP...

... and I'm sooo excited!

AAM's first challenge prompt is this: If I Live to be a 100. Here's my take:

In this layout, I kind of addressed both the challenge prompt ("If I live to be 100") and the fact that this is the FIRST challenge for AAM.

Journaling reads: I hope it doesn't take 100 years to know the 100% me. They say it takes a lifetime to know one's self... and how long is a lifetime? 50, 80, 100 years? I do not wish to wait, the time to explore and discover me is now.

Supplies: Cardstocks: Die Cuts with A View, Bazzill Basics Paper, Papers: Sassafras Lass, Scenic Route, October Afternoon, Stickers: Making Memories, Scenic Route, Jenni Bowlin, Rub-ons: Jenni Bowlin, JBL, Stamps: Little Yellow Bicycle, Teresa Collins, Gelatins, Ticket: Tim Holtz, Chipboards: Buzz and Bloom, American Crafts, Buttons: Basic Grey, Acrylic paint: Making Memories, Paper clip: Simple Joys, Pens: Uniball Signo, Other: Cuttlebug chipboard diecut (netting).

When I first learned of the challenge, I already knew that I wanted to use numbers on my layout (hey, admit it, you don't always use those numbers on your rub-ons and stickers, right?).

Just a close up shot of my layers...

and that cute bird from BNB. ;o)

I found you through AMM and just wanted to let you know personally that I thought you rocked this Challenge. Your take was my personal favorite out of the bunch.
