Me

During a recent weekend online crop at ScrapCity, there was a challenge to create an "all about me" page. I had been meaning to do a page about myself, mostly because I'm always the one behind the camera. So, this is what I came up with!


I used DCWV All Dressed Up papers. I LOVE these papers! I used my threading water punch on the striped paper and created two border strips that I put under the large black floral piece. I added some white-stiched black ribbon to hide the seams. The glitter chipboard letters and flourish are Brenda Walton. I added a Prima flower stack with a glitter Making Memories brad. The journaling is hand-written on an awesome sheet of Making Memories Noteworthy notebook journaling paper. I got the notebook from my secret sister at ScrapCity, Tobey! Thank you so much Tobey! I love the little journaling notebook! So, that's my page . . . all about me!

Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!
