Say Hello to the Selfie

Friday, August 23, 2013


I was looking through family scrapbook albums and only found a couple of photos of myself in there. What???????

I am a part of the family? I think I deserve a page, or two, or three...right? (smile)

To solve this problem, I've started taking "selfies" of myself at least once of month. I hate taking photos. I'm usually the one behind the camera getting shots of everyone else. I think I can handle this as long as I create fun pages with the pictures.

 
I used a variety of fun products. The background paper and photo frame is from Basic Grey. I also used a lot of chipboard from My Mind's Eye.

I even typed up a bit of journaling. I'm trying to add more of it to my pages.

I did a lot of layering too. I think it makes the photo stand out more on the page. 



Glitter thickers were a must on this page too. It makes the title pop off the page.


I'm entering this one into the Frosted Designs chipboard challenge and the Let's Get Sketchy week 3 challenge.




Supplies: Patterned Paper: Basic Grey - Serenade  and Echo Park: Note To Self; Chipboard: My Mind's Eye: Cambridge Court and My Mind's Eye: Boy Crazy; Circle Element: Elle's Studio: Day to Day Tidbits; Glitter Thickers: American Crafts; Font: Champagne & Limousines
