{AAM challenge #1} If I live to be 100...

The day is finally here for our first All About Me Challenge 
with the Design Team!

So let's jump right in!

Perhaps you'll recognize these lyrics If I live to be 100 and never see the seven wonders.. that'll be alriiiight... I am Rosemary's granddaughter, the spitting image of my father and when the day is done my mama's still my biggest fan....  If you are a Jessica Andrew's fan or listen to a little country music, you'll know that song I think.  While I'm not a huge country fan, that's a song that stuck with me since I first heard it and what has inspired our first challenge!

If I live to be 100.....

How would you finish that sentence??  Remember.. this is about YOU!
Here is what I came up with:

Supply list: Paper: MME Penny lane, Crate Prudence collection, Jilly Bean soup Minestrone, October Afternoon; Cardstock: brown and orange; Letters: Thickers American Crafts, Mini alphabet stickers My little shoebox, Jillibeen Soup Bean Brown; Bird: Maya Road; Card and envelop: Hallmark; Ribbon: Savvy 'n Sassy; Flowers: Prima; Arrows: Heidi Swap

Journaling reads:

Dear Nanna,

If I live to be 100, then I would be 10 years older then you are now.
And 90 is for me already a hugh age.
If I live to be 100, then I hope there will be someone who loves me as much as I love you. Who will think of me with as much affection as I think of you.
If I live to be 100, I hope I will not be too lonely. The chance to that is of course big, because we don't have any kids. But you are also lonely, even with 4 daughters, a lot.
As I live to be 100, I hope my health will be good. Cause always having pain, like you, that must be so hard.
But... If I live to be 100, I hope to become that together with Hans. And not like you, more then the half of your live alone..

Love, Miranda.
