Me, Myself and I - Part 1

As much as i enjoy scrapbooking pictures of the people dearest to me, i also love scrapbooking pictures of myself.  As a child and a teenager, i have always been one to keep diaries and have spent many hours writing and drawing in them.  Now, apart from the occasional poem, i mainly choose to express myself through pretty papers and silk flowers, among so many other fabulous materials. This is only Part 1 of this post as i have lots more layouts of myself that i have to photograph again (for better quality pictures) so... more to come!

Life is Beautiful
The SEI Moravia collection is one of my all time favorites. I regret not buying a whole bunch of it to use for a future wedding album (yes, there is a wedding on the way!) or some other special project. I used a computer script font (i don't remember which one exactly) and WordArt in PowerPoint to create the title and a lot of patience to cut the outline by hand.  The layout was inspired by a design at Scrapbook Craze.

Once a Bridesmaid
I was very honoured to be my friend Denise's bridesmaid in 2008. The gold glittery stickers come from Dollarama which i wasn't sure i'd ever use, but i think they turned out great on this page. The big flowers were originally white, but i sprayed them with gold Glimmer Mist. Did i ever mention i LOVE Glimmer Mist!

That is exactly the perfect word to describe the Bo Bunny Flutter Butter collection (another favorite of mine!)... SUBLIME!

Where Did the Time Go?
For this layout, i mix-matched different papers to go with some 3-D stickers i had found at the Dollarama (ah, Thank God for Dollarama! It keeps us scrapbookers from going completely "bankrupt"!). The word 'time' and the clock are chipboard that i painted, using Adirondack Paint Dabbers.

Life is Good
Another layout inspired by a design at Scrapbook Craze, this time, using the Basic Grey Origins collection.  The pictures were taken during a stroll at Daly Point, a nature reserve in my town, where little birdies come eat right out of your hand. It's a purely joyful experience, and has served as inspiration for my scrapbooking more than once!
