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
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. :)
