#79 inspired by "born to..."

A prompt from Pam that could have turned into a very deep and meaningful one but this week I went with absolutely the first idea that sprang to mind when I first read the prompt.

Then it was just a matter of thinking what approach to take and which photo to use.

It's a bit of a running joke in my family that I must have been born German as the life here in Germany suits me so much! I like the order, the control, the rules - well a lot of the time anyway! Sometimes it's a bit too much, even for me :-)

But a new life in an new country so very different to the UK could have been much more problematic than it proved to be and a lot of that is due to my personality.

I don't have many photos which show me in a very German way of life so I had to go back a few years to a whistle stop tour of Berlin that we took and to a place which is instantly recognisable. Here in Europe at least.

I used my new "Disconnected" Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit and was happy to find that I had some papers which could be emblematic for the colours of Germany. A sly insertion of some red mist to accompany the yellow and black I had with me at the crop yesterday and I was all set to subtly but deliberately concentrate on these three colours to support my theme.

This was a lot of fun, a little tongue in cheek and quick to bring together. 45 minutes and I was complete! A record for me probably.

The label is a little skew but apart from that, I'm happy with how this one turned out.

What were you born to do? We can't wait to find out.

Don't forget to share over at the Flickr gallery (here) with the tag WM#79 and tune in tomorrow for another prompt to inspire your creativity next week.


  1. FANTASTIC layout! I love the color combination, the mists and swirls, the twine wrapped around the photo...and the story behind the photo. Thanks for sharing it! FABULOUS!

  2. Gorgeous. Love the story too. I am a "good girl" rule follower too. Maybe it is the name.

  3. I LOVE this! And so wonderful that you have a layout documenting how well you have transitioned to/enjoy living in Germany.

  4. Oh, love the misting and the swirls! Fun subject too... Germany sounds like it would not suit me though! x

  5. gorgeous page, and in 45mins - wow!

  6. love the red an dyellow combo against the starkness of the black...great journaling!
