Acrostic *Scrap Yourself* Challenge

Today, 8/7/2010, I challenge you to make a list of the roles, descriptions or characteristics of you.

And guess what? There is a twist.  I want you to do it acrostic style using your name.  You can use your first, middle or last name or all 3.

On my layout example, I wrote:

Mother to Christian
Offspring of James and Miriam
Niece of Carrie, Jean and Thomasina
Inventive and creative
Queen of my house
Unique creation of God
Energized by bright colors and sketches

Here is a layout I made using the above:

I also found a great example from  a book called "What About The Words" which also happens to be in the gallery:

There will be a prize (a $10 gift certificate to  You have until 8/31/2010 to complete this challenge.  In the comment section, leave a link to your layout.  Also, leave your email address so you can be contacted if you win.  A winner will be randomly selected 9/1/2010.
