'Sharon' - About Me challenge at Soul Scrappers.

This was my 'about Me' challenge at 'Soul Scrappers.

The Theme is - "Whats in a Name"

I'm using Sarah Atkins Doenges suggestion from the 'Challenge Suggestion Thread', so thanks for the idea Sarah :)

Your challenge is to scrapbook a page about yourself and finding out as much as you can about your name. In this case I used 'Sharon' as Shazza is my nickname :)

1. Add your name to the page somewhere

2. Try and find out the origins of your name.

3. The meaning of your name

4. Why your parents picked your name?

5. Where you named after a famous actress, dancer, etc.......

Here is my example for the AMC8 challenge called 'Whats in a name?' and inspired by Sarah Atkins Doenges, suggestion in the Challenge suggestion thread...thanks for the idea Sarah :)

I love being named after a Mouseketeer!

Here is what the journaling says:

I was named after Sharon Baird, a Mickey Mouse Club Mouseketeer (1955-1958)

My mum loved her, she said she was the best female tap dancer she had ever seen, she used to twirl a rope over her head, then jump rope whilst tapping to the music.

Sharon started dancing at the age of 3, and just a few years later, her legs were insured for $50,000 with Lloyds of London while she appeared on 'The Colgate Comedy hour' (1950)

** the girls name 'SHARON' (sh(a)ron) is of Hebrew origin and its meaning as a 'fertile' Plain Biblical place name: refers to flat land at the foot of Mount Carmel. The song of solomen describes the beloved Schulamite woman as a flower/rose of Sharon **

Here is my take called 'Coober Pedy'

Hi All! I know my submission is late, but better late than they say!! lol
I wanted to use a real Australian pic and theme, so I scrapped a pic of our family trip to Ayers Rock in 1997. We had a stop over in Coober Pedy, it was hot, dusty and desolite. Most families live underground, and we got to visit a few underground homes and a church. I promised I would never complain about dust in my house ever nothing stayed dust free for more that a few minutes!! I have added a tiny outback lizard to my layout, he is hiding on a branch at the top of the left hand side green pom pom. lol
This is Ben (Friends kid) Jarred (my kid) and Adam (my older kid) looking out over the sand dunes from a look out at Coober Pedy. TFL - Shazza
