My Mom and Dad...and I've been tagged!


This is a very special picture to me. I get all teary-eyed when I look at it. It's the one and only photo I have of my Mom and Dad together. In fact, I don't really have any other good photos of my Dad at all! This photo was taken at my cousin's wedding some 25 years ago, but they were not together at the time. Still, it's a sweet photo and I love that they're holding hands.

My scrappy friend Dayami tagged me on her blog so I better give it a go!

Here are the rules: You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name. Each fact must begin with that letter. If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name. After you've been tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and answers. At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name.

Vanessa is my middle name (betcha some of you didn't know that!)

V-Vocal: I like to speak up and get my point across!
A-Artist: Life Artist, that is! My passion is my art.
N-Neat: I am a neat freak and I like everything nice and organized.
E-Energy: It's something I'm lacking and striving for more of in 2008!
S-Sensitive: I am sensitive and sometimes take things too personally.
S-Social: I can be shy at first if I don't know you, but I am quite social and I love to hang out with friends.
A-Articulate: I think I am a good, effective communicator.

Now I'm going to tag Mika, Elizabeth, Nancy, Balou, Trish, Ady and Damaris (again)!

Have fun girls! :-) Peace and happy scrapping!

I will play too maybe this weekend. I have no inspiration. My room is so clean that I don't want to touch just look and admire. I love that photo of your parents. Can't wait to see what you create with it...
