Fifteen (SIWAS DT Reveal & C'est Magnifique Sketch)

This month, we are rockin' and rollin' to school-themed tunes at Scrap It with a Song!

This week, the Rock Chicks, including yours truly, had to let the sound of Taylor Swift's "Fifteen" inspire us.  Visit SIWAS now and see what the rest of the DT created and find out how you can link up your layout for a chance to be a future Guest Designer!

Here is my layout:
Yes, you guessed it...  
That is 15-year-old Nicole!  WOW!  That was a LONG time ago - almost a quarter of a century past!

While listening to Taylor Swift's song (i have to admit that it was my first time hearing it), these lyrics stood out:  "When all you wanted was to be wanted.  Wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now..."   To me, that embodies well what my adolescent years were all about, 'to be wanted', desperately searching for the love and acceptance of a boy.  

Who knew that i would have to wait 18 years before the right one came along!

I decided to play along with the sketch challenge at C'est Magnifique (a wonderful kit club who offers truly exquisite inspiration in the form of beautiful kits and talented DT) for the first time.  
Here is Nadia's lovely sketch for September:

And here are close-ups of me at 15 - hehehe

Thank you for visiting!


  1. Great layout - love the greens! Love the lyrics of the song - describe exactly what I am sure so many of us went through!

  2. Love your beautiful layout. Your photo and story are wonderful!

  3. Beautiful layout Nicolle! I just love that song & have also done a layout with that title and the lyrics too, some years back about my daughter!
