Many moons ago I did this layout and I used it in a little book I wrote called Clean & Simple Scrapbooking: The Sequel. (I think you can pick up used copies for like .40 cents now or something.)
It was a direct scrap lift of an ad campaign being run by American Express. Remember those? They’d ask some famous person questions and they’d answer them in their own handwriting? Ringing a bell?
I was taking photos of older pages yesterday, saw this and thought: this would be so easy for anyone to do. Print out a sheet. Write your answers. Get a big assed photo. Find some embellishment and boom! One spread about you or someone you love answering a few questions.
As I looked at what I wrote 10 years ago, I realize that today my answers would be different. I am going to do this page again. Maybe this weekend. Granted, I won’t have a killer photo by Tara Whitney, but you can’t have everything you want all the time, right?
In the tradition of Throw Back Thursday, I’m sharing the means for you to make your own version of this page. And yes, I would LOVE it if you could use a giant photo of you. (And then I would love it even more if you either emailed a photo of the finished page to me or posted it on my Facebook page!) You don’t need Photoshop for this one either! A printable PDF is included in the digital package. Just print onto cardstock and go! I’ve included layered templates as well, so if you want to change that font, have at it. (Note: each line is it’s own layer so if you change the topics you can change the line lengths, too!) Either way, I think the key here is to include your own handwriting. This was back when I was just starting to realized, “Hey, my scrawl doesn’t suck nearly as much as I think it does!”
Also, speaking of #tbt: Big Heidi Swapp flowers. HOLLA!

Here’s to make a page with some details about you!
p.s. those J.Jill jeans in the photo? Still hanging in my closet. They’ll make the rounds again some day. Or not.
