Make sure to tell your story...
June 23, 2014
As the Mom and a Scrapbooker I'm the one who's telling my family's story.
I'm also usually the one taking the all pictures. Sometimes I'm even in the pictures.
As a scrapbooker, one of the things I've never done before was to do a layout on "ME".
I know it feels a little vain, but, it's important. (Don't you think?)
Hopefully one day, my kids or grand-kids might enjoy reading a little bit about me.
Isn't that why we do it? To tell our "story".
Last month on my blog I did a post on "10 things you may or may not know about me."
I used that post as the starting point for this layout.
I like to use things in ways other than how their supposed to be used.
For this layout I used one of the scalloped shapes from the Send it Clear card kit from Clear Scraps. Once I glued the scrapbook paper to the clear scallop, I edged around it with a gold paint pen. I love how it's a subtle enhancement for my page. I glued a small medallion onto the tip of the scallop.
The paper is from the "Americana" collection from Pebbles Inc.
I also used Tim Holtz' "Chit Chat" stickers to emphasize certain words in my story.
It's simple and it's me!
I used the rest of the Fancy Send it Clear Card Kit and the Americana papers to make this card.
