A Layout of ME!

HOWDY ALL!

Well, I think things are getting back to "somewhat" normal! Last week was just a BLUR and I am SOOO HAPPY that it is OVER!

I HAD to clean my house yesterday, which is usually my play day in my Scrappy Room. I decided last night after the house was clean, dinner was done and the kitchen cleaned back up, it was time for some FUN!!

This week the challenge over at Lasting Memories was to create a layout about ME! WHEW, that was a task to try to find pics of JUST me, but I found some. Then I had to find me a sketch for my 3 pics, and I found this one over at Sketchabilities. Also, this week over at The Paper Variety, the challenge is Polka Dots, so I threw that in the works also! LOL!

Here is the sketch:
and here is my take, and I actually stayed pretty close to the sketch:
These pics were taken back in 2008 when I hosted a Scrappy weekend for some friends. There were 6 of us and we scrapped and had a BLAST. These are the pics of me opening some Hostess gifts from the girls! They SPOILED me!

Here are some close-ups of my flowers:


The background paper is some OLD stuff from CM and the rest is from my Stash of Scraps. I cut the flourish/leaves with MTC. The White Border is from a border swap that I was in, the flowers, bling and brads are from my stash.

I really like how this page turned out. Anyways, THANKS for stopping by!
