Wednesday Words

Today I'm sharing a scrapbook page created with the Challenge YOUrself layout theme in mind.

Using die cuts on scapbook pages is somethjing I often like to do, so that was easy. But the main requirement of pages for this challenge is that you MUST include yourself in the photo.

Now this is something I used to struggle with, but these days have come to realise no-one in the future is going to look at photos of me and think things like she should get a haircut. Hopefully they'll be just as intrigued as I am when I look back at photos of my ancestors and wonder about the clothes and hair.

So here's that page:

How often do I get all three grandchildren together and willing to stay still long enough? Only a few times each year!! So it was a special time when the weather played ball as well as them and this pic just had to be scrapped.

I found the aqua PL card and loved what it saud so that set one of my colours and then as a contrast I picked up on the coral colour from one of their shorts to combine with it.  The papers came first, then I added the die cut circles, spiro circles and stars and linked them altogether with some stamped splashes, sentiments and enamel dots using inks in both the colours.

Papers: AC Amy Tangerine, Oh Happy Life, kraft cardstock
Dies: MFT Die-namiics, double stitched circles; Xcut, stars & spiro circles
Stamsp: Precious Remembrance shop, Positive Toughts
Inks: SU, pool party, calypso coral
Embellishmants: MME, Now & Then enamel dots

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog today, it's been such fun having you visit. And keep crafting!
