Several years ago I started work on a scrapbook All About Me following a set of prompts but then I lost the set of prompts I was working on and the project got put aside. Over the weekend while blog hopping I came across a challenge blog called Challenge YOUrself and so I thought I would dig out the album and start working on it again. There was a great sketch to work with and you had to incorporate the words Note to Self.
Now this layout doesn’t actually include a full photo of myself but it those are my hands and my newly painted nails. The Note to Self reads Now you’ve started to have nails painted…….
…….continue to treat yourself.
The papers I used are from the Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments paper pad that I used for the 50th birthday card in an earlier post. I also found a couple of elements in my stash which had the words Note to Self which I have also added to the LO. The tag on the right side slides behind the paper and has more journaling on explaining how having my nails painted made me feel and how I choose my nail colour each time.
SU punches and stamps were used for the butterflies and some bling added to them.
For those that are interested on how I choose my nail colour it all depends on which outfit I am wearing on the day. I choose a colour from the outfit – in this instance it was the teal blue on the tunic I was wearing, The top photo gives a truer reflection of the real colour of my nails, whereas in the bottom photo they look more like electric blue.
As this is a monthly challenge I might just be able to add a few more pages to my book which would be great and who knows it might just be of interest to my children/grandchildren in the future.
