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.
