01/29/13 - All about "ME"

Good Morning, friends!
I hope all is well w/ you today!

I am stopping by w/ a post that is all about "Me".
What does that mean exactly?
Well, 1. I have a layout to share in which I am the main subject
   and 2. I have an announcement to make.


First the layout:

"Me- Nov 23, 2012"
Supplies: SB.com Cozy Winter kit, EK Success Paper Shapers Large Tag Punch
American Crafts Amy Tangerine Photo Op Date StampZig Pen Black, Whale of a Punch Large Circle punch


I created this for a challenge over at SB.com.
The challenge was  a "technique" challenge and the technique was to use punches.
I love punches and I have quite a few in my stash, but sometimes I forget to use them.
For my layout I used an old 'Large Circle' punch to create the frame for my little picture and a new 'Tag' punch, for the border going across the page
BTW - When I say "old" I mean really old! It was the first punch I ever bought!
And when I saw "new" I mean really new! I just purchased and received the punch this past weekend from SB.com! I have had a re-newed interest in tags lately and when I saw the tag punch used on a few layouts in the gallery, I just knew I HAD to have it (Yes, HAD to, LOL)!
 
IDK about you, but I don't have a lot of pictures of just me because I am always behind the camera. And the rare times there are pictures of me I usually don't like them (you know how it is), so I was super excited with these pics and couldn't wait to scrap them! (Is it bad that I think I look GOOD, LOL?!) The only problem w/ the pictures was there was a lot of distractions in the BG: both people and objects. That is why I created the large frame and overlapped my items the way I did. In the end I am happy w/ the pics AND the layout!
 
And now for the announcement...
(drum roll, please)
Remember I tried out for the "Childs Play Challenges" DT?
Well, I am very excited to share that I was selected!
Yay!!!!
I've known for about a month now but had to keep it super secret until the made the official announcement on the blog. They did so today so now I can share! :0)
My first challenge will go live on the blog on February 13th.
Can't wait!
I hope you'll stop by and visit me there and see the creations from the other DT members and maybe even play along!

  1. Awesome! Super excited for you! It's torture having to keep good news secret for a month. I'd forgotten you'd even applied! Looking forward to seeing your first challenge.

  2. Congrats! :) Love your LO! A few years ago, when I was gaining weight, my MIL gave me some words of wisdom. BE in your pictures, SHARE in the fun & good times - because later on, you'll wish you had. You'll look back on those times and wish you'd taken more pictures, or hadn't been as self-concious ... and she was SO right! :) I made it a priority to document my life the way it was - heavy or thin, bad hair days and all. I may not put all those photos out there, or scrapbook them always (or I may creatively crop them), but I'm present in those memories! :)
