Challenge YOUrself - May 2015

Here's the sketch for the current challenge YOUrself competition:
Well, I was looking through photos of me & realised I had an ... ummm...
'eclectic mix' from each of my decades spanning 20s - 50s. 
FOUR photos.....so, that's where I went.
Feeling PLEASED these are scrapped.
With all that journaling [on vellum, then stitched to my page], I had to play with the sketch!
I had a BALL with the circle element.
It started as stitching, added some blue Gelato,  then some pencil circles
then some glitter glue. YUM!!
Sort of got carried away with quite a few [understatement] glittery elements:
 Oh, Dusty Attic words.... how I LOOOOVE thee!!
And below, a wooden gal [since it's all about MOI!] from Sandra S. 
And LOTS of different washi tapes....and glittery alphas.....
and another Dusty Attic word...
My! I WAS SOOOO young.....
And in all its colourful, glitzy glory.....well...those photos...it was either go plain or OTT.
Which, in my case, means there's really no choice.
Unless I'm having a madly restrained moment.
Oh! Before I show you it all, I DID add some flair/buttons:
Now, I know the top flair [from A Flair for Buttons] has a bit of rust.
But it all adds character. Bit like my lines and grey hairs!
HOWEVER, I must say, this is why I really like FUNKY FLAIRS, as they have
PLASTIC BACKS & I don't seem to get this problem at all!
Top left there's also an Evalicious flair, too......
Thanks so much for taking the time to check this LO out....& if you haven't
joined in with CHALLENGE YOURSELF...then you should!
Think, just think - how many of your pages feature YOU????

  19. I really love this page, Lizzy! It's so great how you documented different stages of your life...as much as we roll our eyes over the 'selfie' generation - we are scrappers that love to document memories, experiences etc, and I love to see pages where we turn the camera on ourselves....I think it's cool and you've done a wonderful job with this xox
