Last night I took some time out while my husband and youngest son went to hockey practice to create a just for fun page. My scrappy friend and Stuck?! Sketches DT member, Aurélie, is also on the DT of another challenge site called Challenge Yourself. And her pages always inspire me, so I thought I would play along. I decided to incorporate a few other challenges as well since it is not often I play just for fun!
Here are the challenges...
Challenge Yourself offered this colour combo as well as a request to include the words "I am" in our titles. The premise behind this challenge site is to include yourself in the layouts.
Scrap Our Stash requested we use a stash item from each letter in the word W-A-S-H-I.
Sue Sykes created this fun sketch for Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. I try to play along with them as often as I can.
And this is my page...
I really tried hard to find a good photo of me but I do not get in front of the camera often, so this goofy one will have to do. But that is why I ended up incorporating this camera die cut into my page., just a little symbolism from me to me. Ha!
I tried to stay pretty close to the sketch, but did add some paper strips and the top and bottom of my page to help reinforce the colour combo.
I decided if I was going to create a page about myself, then my I AM statement and journaling should really be about the "me" that isn't about being mom or wife, but more about the things that make me, me.
I used a bunch of stash items, more than what I needed to for the Scrap Our Stash challenge and it felt really good.
This is how I used the challenge word/letters.....
W - WOOD BUTTON
A - ALPHA STICKERS
S - STAPLES
H - HEARTS
(they are tiny and a little hidden, but they are there. I always feel kind of narcissistic when I add hearts onto a page about me! lol)
I - INK
Product List - patterned papers: Simple Stories and My Mind's Eye; flair: My Mind's Eye and Maggie Holmes (picked up from her booth a few CHA's ago); rub-ons (a million years old though brand new and still work amazing) and alpha stickers: Kaisercraft; enamel dots: My Mind's Eye; brad: Freckled Fawn; stickers: Echo park and Pebbles; resin flower: Webster's Pages; corner anchor and floss: CTMH; Sharpie, Staedtler pen, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, misc. wood button.
