Your birth story

Hi everyone!

The My Lifetime Story Challenge over at Faith Sisters (F.S.) has just begun and we are having so much fun!  I have really enjoyed putting together this book.  So many facts about my life put into a scrapbook!  Perfect, right?  And I'm having a GREAT time playing with digi and being able to use some of the fabulous product by the designers at F.S. Of course, my book is a little bit farther ahead than those of you who may be following along as the challenges are released.. but trust me, they are just getting better and better! 

So this week, your focus is on your birth.  Include a cute little baby photo of yourself and just give the facts like your name, weight and length, where you were born, maybe include who you were named after, etc.  This was fun because as I chatted with my mom a bit, I learned that she had originally had in mind to name me Jennifer.  That name just happened to be the most popular girl name the year I was born.  Well, a friend of hers was also in labor at the same time and had her baby first... SHE named her Jennifer.  (Don't worry.. she didn't know my mom wanted to name me that...)  So my mom named me Melissa... which was the second most popular name that year.  Ha! 

Ready to see my layout?
