Aloha Scrappers!! In my house if I don’t take a photo of myself I am hardly ever in photos. Except for when I am sleeping with my mouth open and my husband thinks thats the perfect time to pull out the camera!! Do I really want those moments to be what my kids remember of me in photos?! Not really.
Every once in a while I make it a habit to pull those selfies off my phone reel and print a couple to make a layout with. Just so I have a few good photos of me for everyone to look at. Plus some fun details about me that my kids will enjoy reading when they are older.
Plus I love when Itake a selfie and it actually looks good! Half the time I just look silly or goofy! This layout I chose a good selfie that I really like of myself. I have a nice Hawaiian tan and glow about me.
I used some of the Dear Lizzy Documentary Collection, which is my favorite collection right now. I am trying to use it and not hoard it an let it sit in my stash looking pretty there.
I really wanted to keep this layout simple with those pops of color. At first I tried to use yellow paint behind my layers and it just wasn’t working for me. It was too much color and not enough white open space.
I added some black and white printable tags, some coppery little arrows and some glittery gold hearts to add a little more to the layout, but stopped there.
Here is how my layout turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today and checking out what I am up too!! I am hoping to get into a routine this fall/winter and post videos about 4 times a week. I love sharing and I hope that I inspire you.
Have a great day,
