Lasting Memories 36

This week at Lasting Memories, our challenge is "all about me."  I wasn't sure what to do with this one.  Then I remembered the pictures that my friend Ben took several years ago.  Ben was really getting into photography and he needed a model.  I worked as a professional model for several years, so Ben asked me to help him out.  We took most of these pictures in my parents yard in Philly.  The one on the water was taken on the point in Longport, NJ, which is where my parents have our summer house, and where Ben lives year round.  (If you notice that the photos are watermarked, they have my maiden name on them). 

I ordered this gorgeous Peacock Lane paper by Bo Bunny and I got it in the mail last week.  I LOVE IT!  Purple is my favorite color and I love it paired with teal.  I also have an obsession with peacocks, so this is perfect!

Lauren, I love the way you composed your LO! Hey, if I looked like you, I wouldn't cringe every time some one took my camera.(you look like a model) I also seem to have a thing with peacocks, I thought it was cats but apparently I'm WRONG! :D

This is absolutely gorgeous. I love purple too and those peacock feathers do go so well with this layout.
I am looking forward to be on the DT with you and getting to know you better.
Hugs
