Scrapbooking Page Ideas: 'About Me'

Scrapbooking about myself? No thank you! I have no problem coming up with scrapbooking page ideas for my kids, my family, my anscestors, or our latest vacation, but coming up with pages about myself are a lot more difficult.

Part of the problem is that I don't have a lot of recent pictures of myself. I'm usually the one behind the camera, and the only time I'll relinquish that duty is for someone to take a group shot. Pictures of just me are pretty rare.

However, the single head shot does exist and every so often I come across it when scrapping - like this picture of myself sporting one of the groomsman's hat and scarf at a friend's wedding:

I AM... (12x12)

About Me Scrapbooking Page Ideas
I AM...
  • crying tears as they take off, but cheering as they fly
  • committed to my primary vocation
  • addicted to trashy romance novels
  • christ - annointed, but not accepted
  • plaid jumpers, bobby socks, and saddle shoes
  • Ateh, princess of the Khazars
  • contemporary whimsy with a touch of shabby chic
  • a grammar goddess
  • late...again.
  • King's Constant Reader
  • Halle Berry with a splash of double venti caramel frappuccino

I really like this picture of myself (another rare occurrence!) - mostly because I think it captures the fun and whimsical side of my personality. While I was looking at it, I remembered a college creative writing assignment I had done that made us write an autobiographical poem about ourselves. I couldn't find the original poem (probably a good thing!), so I decided to recreate it's list form in the journaling on this page.

Starting with a list is a great way to inspire some 'about me' scrapbooking page ideas. Try making a list of your favorites things, your dreams, your goals, whatever! Still stumped?

There are tons of great 'About Me' scrapbooking page ideas with lists on the web. Even, better check out some of our reader submitted About Me Layouts at the bottom of this page. Then, when you've created your About Me layout - come on back and submit yours as well!
