Challenge with Mary and Laura ...

So two of my favorite scrappy gals Mary and Laura do these little challenges every few weeks where they pick 3 or 4 items and then each scrap a layout including those items. They sometimes invite others to join in and, well, this week I kinda invited myself to join them. Good thing they like me and said okay! Hee hee!

But they DID give me a challenge because this is what they decided on using:
1. die cuts
2. scallops
3. pink
4. glitter

Okay so I can totally deal with # 1 and #2 but #3 and #4 are quite a stretch for this all boy mom. Do I even own pink cardstock? (it just so happens that I DO own a few pieces!) It was a really good reason to do an "about me" page and use some of my yummy new GCD Studios papers I just got in the mail the other week to boot.

So here's what I came up with ...


Like I said, I had really been wanting to do an "about me" page and this was the perfect reason to get it done. The little journaling strips are just some random facts about me - some are kinda trivial (like I truly hate feet! they totally gross me out!) and some are more profound (like this month is the 5 year anniversary of my dad's passing). I went ALL OUT with the pink and glitter. I just kinda couldn't stop once I got going. I actually had to take a few things OFF my page after it was done because it was just so darn glittery (is that a word?). See that PINK, GLITTER, DIE-CUT chipboard, SCALLOPED heart below? Yep! I think I met all four criteria with that one accent right there. LOL


Make sure to head on over to Mary and Laura's blogs and see what they've come up with as well. :)

awesome take on the challenge lynn! i was a little worried when i told you "pink" was one of our items for this challenge (since i know you have boys). but i love that you used this as an opportunity to do a page about yourself! and love the photo! i had to laugh about the pink, glitter, diecut, scallop heart ... you totally fit all the criteria with that one piece. lol!

thanks so much for playing along with us! we loved having you for the challenge!

Aren't Laura and Mary's challenges the best? You did a great job with this one - and love that you did a page about YOU! How fun that the one little heart fit all four criteria too! :o)

Great layout, Lynn! I love that you included all kinds of random tidbits about yourself - it's important to do these kinds of layouts once in a while, isn't it? I keep thinking I need to scrap more about me because my kids will (hopefully) be interested to know more about who I was when they were little. Anyway, love how you used your new papers - the glitter and the pink suit you! Thanks for playing along! :)
