30 - AC Challenge

This week, American Crafts, one of my favorite scrapbooking products brand, challenged their readers to make a scrapbook inspired on an image found online. (Click HERE to know what the challenge is about.)

For the challenge, I used the following image found on Tumblr, with its original source coming from HERE.

I thought the grafic design of the image was beautiful, so in response, I created the following layout:

Products: Cardstock (American Crafts), letter stickers (American Crafts), chipboard letter stickers (American Crafts), patterned paper (American Crafts background, Cosmo Cricket letters), ribbon (American Crafts, Making Memories)
This page is a collection of some of my "Youth Rules" (the pun in the title is intended.) First of all, let me say that for me youth doesn't depend upon the number of candles on your cake, but in the spirit of how you live. And although I only halfway believe in these, I thought they would be fun to make. These are the rules that I wrote to follow and "suck the marrow" out of my youth:

  1. Whenever you can, choose the outdoors instead of the indoors.
  2. Participate in team sports, whether as a spectator or a player.
  3. Take lots of pictures. Print many of them.
  4. Read a lot, but don't live in your books.
  5. Write down your dreams.
  7. Always do your homework, it will save you from a lot of stress.
  8. Listen to music, especially of the happy kind.
  9. Spend more time by the shore.
  10. Play more guitar.
  11. Family always comes first.
  12. Ride your bike.
  13. Jog outside.
  14. Ride the public bus.
  15. Play with your brother & sister.
  16. Give heartfelt presents.
  17. Celebrate other people.
  18. Hug your father & mother.

  25. Get away from Facebook.
  26. The telephone is better than Skype.
  27. Dance.
  28. Decorate.
  29. Have your four meals. Diets don't work.
  30. Don't be afraid to show your body, nor to hide it.

  32. Who cares about what they're saying about you.
  33. Lay on the grass to look at the clouds and stars.

  43. Talk to G'd.
  44. Play with children.
  45. When at the beach, always get into the sea.
  46. When with family, wear sunscreen. When with friends, don't.
  47. Talk to your grandparents as often as you can.
  48. Wear makeup, but not every day.
  49. Collect things.
  50. Watch movies and TV, but not often.
  51. Be informed.
  52. Take a stand, do what's right.
  53. Don't follow the leader, be the leader.
  54. Make a fool of yourself.
  55. Trash your room, then organize it while listening to music.
  56. Write hand-written letters.
  57. Go to bed late, wake up early. You will fall asleep while reading.
  58. Buy pretty underwear.
  59. Don't always be behind the camera.
  60. Drink lots of water, maybe tea.
  61. Don't stress.
  62. Forget about what you look like. It doesn't really matter.
  63. Have your own organization method, even if it's chaos.
  64. Have ideologies.
  65. Add or subtract to this list, but remember that in the process of living out your youth, you will not pay attention to these. Just live.

What are your life rules? Or youth rules, if you also believe that one can set their mind to never grow old too?
