All About Me!

Happy Friday Everyone!

Hope you've all had a good week. We've been having some crazy weather here, tons of rain and yesterday very bad thunderstorms. And even some areas of NH were hit with possible tornadoes. Thoughts and prayers are with those that lost loved ones and homes. It really was a terrible day here, I don't remember ever having weather like that!

So today, we have another fun challenge for you over on STAMP SOMETHING! This week's host is the super talented Alex and she has a scrap book challenge for us. But, not just any scrap book challenge, it has to be all about YOU! This was a very difficult challenge for me to say the least, but I'm happy that I did it. Head over there now and see the fabulous design team pages and get some inspiration to create your own all about ME page! The blog candy this week is being donated by Jen from the Cococut Scrap Shop!

Ok, so here I am! I truly hate photos of myself so really that was the toughest part of this challenge. I loved making the scrap page though!

I used pieces from the level 3 hostess Simply Scrappin' Kit, Just 4 You. I love the soft colors and all the die cut embellishments. For my 3 buttons, I used clear buttons with ribbon and hemp twine. The 4 brads are yellow and scattered throughout the page. I also used 4 different ribbons, wide Chocolate grosgrain, the decorative ribbon included in the kit, and a some grosgrain Celery and Bashful gingham.

The stamps used here are from Close To My Heart. The letter stamps are Stampin' Up! set Schoolbook Serif Alphabet. All other embellishments are from the kit.

Thanks for looking today! Have a fantastic weekend. Happy stamping!! :)

Hi Denise-Lynn
Won't be taking part in the cahllenge this week as I don't scrapbook, but I've left a littel something for you on my blog.
