It's All About Me. . .Scrapbook Layout

Hi Everyone!! Okay. . .I'm sort of cheating. . .I made this layout for my stamp and scrapbooking blog site a few weeks ago because I don't have any new stuff to post on this blog site. LOL!

I hate the idea of neglecting this site because I haven't had the time to craft anything new.

For my stamp and scrapbooking club, this was the "scrapbook layout" challenge. . .what was the challenge? To create a "It's All About Me" 12 x 12 layout.

All of the materials used for this layout was created using Close to My Heart Products except for the ribbons: "Life's Delight Level 2 Paper Packet, Cocoa/Sweet Leaf/Blush cardstock, Just Blooms Big Pinks (paper flower), Craft Buttons in Key Lime, and Bigger Brads. You can find all of these products if you check out my Close To My Heart Website - the link is located on my right sidebar. Check it out!!


Anyway. . .I created this layout myself and this is the sketch if you want to try it out!!

This picture was taken about 2 1/2 years ago. . .when I was skinny. Add about 20 lbs and here I am today. . .LOL! I wish I was skinny again. It would be nice to fit my nice Banana Republic slacks. . .I love those slacks but I can no longer fit them. Whaa! One day. . .it'll happen!

Hope y'all have a wonderful Friday!!
