Born This Way

Good Thursday morning!! It is a rainy morning here in New England, but still warm. I loved sleeping with the windows open last night and hearing the rain.

So, you have heard Laurie and Kel talk about "it is all about the story". I agree; journaling is very important in scrapbooking so that when future generations look at your albums, they not only know the who, what, where and when, but the why. But sometimes, just the picture tells the story. That was the case with this shot of my son at soccer practice. Anyone who knows him, knows what I am talking about. :) I made this LO for a lyrics challenge on a message board that I visit and used lyrics from Lady Gaga's "Born This Way".

I'm beautiful in my way
'Cause God makes no mistakes
I'm on the right track baby
I was born this way.

And really, that is all that needed to be said for this layout. Family and friends will know exactly what I was trying to say when they look at this picture. And they will smile.

I am also entering this layout into Frosted Designs Sketch Along Tuesdays Sketch #24 challenge. What an awesome sketch, no?
