I Wanna Talk About Me!

Love that Toby Keith song.....I wanna talk about me, me, me, me.

But seriously, who am I? My name is Kathleen Marie, but I go by Katt. People in the scrap world, if they know me, know me by scrapnkitty. I am a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a wife, a mother, a friend. I am a scrapbooker. DUH, why else would you be here.

I was born and raised on the South side of Chicago, IL. I went to Catholic school for 12 years. I am the middle child of three girls. My best friend is my little sister. I am still friends with my bff from grade school, though we live 2000 miles away from each other.

I am a loner. I am a night owl. I do not choose to be either, that's just how it is. I do not make friends easily. I am not a morning person. I suffer from depression and use my hobby/passion as therapy. My mood often comes through on my layouts.

I live to create, I create to live. I have a family that loves me for who I am. And I love them with my entire being. They are the reason I scrap. I want to cherish every waking moment of our lives, because life is just too short not to. Every page may not be perfect in the visual aspect, but every page is perfect in the sense that I told the story an will continue to carry the memory.

I am selfish. I admit it. I live for the praise from others. I need to feel loved. Doesn't everybody? Sure I scrap for me and my family, but I scrap for you too. Don't get me wrong, I am very giving as well. I love admiring the hard work and creativity of others as well. I have more friends online than I do in real life......that's just sad.

Wow pity party or what? Sorry I am completely rambling.

Here are two layouts that I have completed that are about me. Yes just me. I want to be remembered too.

I guess I should get out in the real world and make some friends.......

Some great layouts of you Katt!! While I think it would be great if you found people nearby that shared common interests for you to visit with, remember that a friend is a friend no matter how you met, or how far away they are! Hope you are having a great day!

Nice to meet you Katt. I'm Jacqui...a wife ~ daughter ~ sister ~ mother ~ aunt ~ friend ~ scrapbooker. I too suffer with depression and recently lost a sister to the disease. Thanks you for sharing about yourself it is very touching. I love checking out your blog as well as other accomplished blog writers....I have one, but can't seem to keep it up or keep up with it.

I have had a major scrapbooking block for sometime, how do you get motivated to use it as therapy. I know that's what I should do, but can't get over this hump? I look for challenges and ideas from other blogs and sites, but can't get past that point. Would love to hear what get you going.

Again, thanks for sharing. Keep on keeping on.
Jacqui :O)

You inspired me. I found a digital class on Two Peas, thought I'd try it and made this layout. It's not very original as I was following along with the class, but I thought I'd share it with you.
