#selfie

Hello - I'm enjoying a leisurely day at home this cold and sunny Sunday.  I wanted to share a scrapbook layout I completed.  I was invited to a 12 hour Winter Crop at my friend Tracy's yesterday and totally enjoyed myself.  I completed this layout and about 3/4 of another, not a marathon creation day by any means but lots of good chats with good company.  I decided to bring a few kits I had and I limited my self to only using products included in the kit.

So I was experimenting with selfies before Christmas and I had just come from a pamper day with my hairdresser so it seemed the perfect time.  I don't know how this is so easy for the younger generation, I have a hard time taking these pics.  Thankfully there is Instagram and great filters!!!  I decided to do a page with one - it's strange using a photo of just yourself.  But I like how it turned out.  I've been trying to experiment with layering and I really like how this turned out.  I have an idea for another similar one.

This layout was created with products from the 2013 Crop & Create Goody Bag.  I used my three favourite papers from the selection of papers and all the embellishments were from the kit with the exception of the washi tape in the lower left corner.  I love this watercolour background paper and the glitter letters!!







I'm entering this in the following challenges:  

Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Something New.  You can use a new product or new technique.  The washi tape is new and the layering is a new technique for me.  

Simon Says Monday Challenge - Make New Friends, but Keep the Old.  I'm using an old kit and trying the new technique of layering and the new washi tape.

Shopping Our Stash Challenge - Happy New Year.  The challenge is to use something new.  The washi tape is brand new. 

Supplies:

Paper:  We R Memory Keepers Chalkboard, Crate Paper Close Knit, Webster's Pages Recorded
Accessories:  Maya Road Wood Buttons, My Minds Eye Tiny Word Stickers, Webster's Pages Arrow clip, May Arts Paper Twine, Crate Paper Flea Market Ephemera pack, American Crafts Daiquiri Gold Thickers, CTMH Gold Washi Tape

I agree, you look fabulous! Your layout looks great, love all the fun little details like the buttons and blingy title! I do think there is an art to taking those shots, I for one am not so good at it! Yours; however, looks great!

Lovely page around a great photo, the glitter title is a nice contrast to the watercolor background.
