Edited to add: this layout has been accepted for publication at Scrapbooking Memories. Not allowed to have this up on my blog until it has been published.
The beautiful colours of the current mood board enticed me to play along with this challenge as I had just the right photo and papers to work with.
It's funny that this layout has another picture of me in it as I rarely scrap layouts about myself or even appear in front of the camera. However this pic was taken when Stephen and I took the dog to the local beach at around sunset for a walk. This also rarely happens as Stephen usually works late.
Anyway I digress, the colours in my photo looked a lot like the colours of the mood board with the pinky/orange sky and my pink complexion and Stephen's green shirt.
The papers I used were from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection. I fell in love with the colour combo when I spotted the collection for sale at Spotlight. It's not often you get a chance to see scrapbooking papers in real life anymore due to the fact that there are no scrapbooking shops anywhere in Perth. So it's nice that Spotlight now carry the American Craft range of Dear Lizzy and Amy Tan.
I had planned for a little while to put our picture in a drawn camera because it's a selfie that we took. I love all the little camera embellishments that you can get from various scrapbook brands. So this is my handmade/drawn version. I guess it should have been black but it's a line drawing so I figure it can be on white cardstock.
I always feel weird writing long posts because a)who knows if anyone cares less about what I have to say and b)can anyone be bothered to read it. I figure however I love it when I see that someone has taken the time to write a decent amount when I visit other bloggers and also if someone visits and finds it dull - they don't have to read it.
Here's my entry: This one's a keeper.
