The Letter “G”

Hi everyone,

I am thrilled and a little nervous about showing my first layout for the Scrap Yourself A-Z challenge.
When I got the letter “G” as my challenge, I knew I had to do something related to my name. For a long time, I´ve wanted to scrap about the meaning of my name and the emotional significance it has for me and my family (especially for my mother). I was named after my grandmother, who passed away when my mom was only 9 years old. She was a gorgeous lady (Miss Bolivia back here), she was loved and respected by everyone, a very hard worker and a very kind person.

When I was born, my parents decided to name me after her. In the past I´ve had mixed feelings about my name, I thought it wasn´t cool enough and that it sounded a little “oldish”…Throughout the years, I´ve learned to love my name, the meaning behind it is so powerful, and the descriptions of my name fits my personality perfectly.

If you haven’t yet, I challenge you to scrap about your name, the meaning behind it and how you feel about it.

Thanks for looking.
Have a great day!
