Us


I created this page for a challenge over at Scrap-Friendzy. The challenge was to use a large photo on a page, and Amy even created a sketch for the challenge! There is a story with the photo on this page! Are you ever in a pic, you look at it on the camera or after you've uploaded it, and you're first reaction is . . . "I look awful". Well, that's this pic for Dave and I! This was taken on my birthday. It was a long day, we're both tired, I have horrible hair (seriously need a highlight and I should have brushed it!!), and I think it truly shows how much I need to lose weight! My face looks huge!! Anyway, I uploaded it and embraced it, because this is us! This is what we look like sometimes! So, instead of deleting it from my camera . . . I enlarged it and scrapped it!! This page uses the most awesome papers! They are Bo Bunny Mama-razzi! I love them! I also used my NEW Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Sizzix die! Love it! I got it at the Memorable Seasons online store! OK, you should check out the store, because Jill has so much on sale right now! It's unbelievable, and I've been VERY bad! Last, but certainly not least, I used the amazing Pink Paislee chipboard letters that my most awesome blogging friend Chris sent to me! Aren't they fabulous!?!

I hope you are enjoying your Friday! Have a GREAT weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

I think it's a lovely pic of you and your hubby as you both look so happy together. I never like looking at pictures of myself but at the end of the day I guess the picture reflects what I look like even if I don't always like what I see! Have a great weekend x

First of all, kudos for scrapping a picture of yourself that you don't like. That is VERY hard to do! BUT, I think its a great picture and I just love your layout!
