So I've found another page with layout challenges yesterday, Scrap Challenge YOUrself. This kind of spoke to me. More about that in a second.
The challenge here was to use the given sketch, the phrase "Note to Self" and the layout had to include a photo of me. ME. So here is my biggest challenge. I do remember taking some photos with my son a couple of weeks back but I don't find them anywhere. And since there's hardly any photos of me from recent years and the ones I did have, had already been scrapped...I looked through old photos and picked a random one. Which was perfect for the theme I chose actually; the most important note to myself that I should remind myself of every single day. To accept myself the way I am. This is why this challenge spoke to me.
Here's the sketch:
The first collection that caught my eye going through my supplies was the My Story collection from My Mind's Eye. It's so extremely gorgeous I HAD TO buy some of it even though I didn't really think I'd have the chance to ever use these items! Now I think I will order some more 12x12" papers from this collection (can you believe it, I forgot I have the 6x6" paper pad which I could have used for this layout...Dumb!).
The only paper not belonging to this collection is the background paper, which is from another beautiful new collection, Documentary from Dear Lizzy.
Here are some close-ups and the final layout itself!
I hope you like! Thanks for stopping by x
