Shape of Me and Other Things

I got a layout done tonite too!!! Go me!!!

The title of the layout is "Shape of Me and Other Things" which is the title of a Dr. Seuss book. Julie over at Treasured Scrapbooking challenged us to use a title of one of his books for our layout. I also used this to complete 2 other challenges - yep, triple duty. I did it for my All About Me challenge/book we have been working on at Just Scrappin' and the sketch challenge at Pencil Lines - which by the way was the first time I played at Pencil Lines but I totally loved the sketch!!!

So, I'll stop yappin' and let you see what I did - now keep in mind, I don't typically use yellow on layouts (or cards to think of it) and I decided this month for my AAM LO I wanted to challenge myself to use yellow. My secret swap sister, Rox-Ann, hooked me up quite well don't ya think? Most of the stuff on the layout was in my package this month - I think the little felt flower, the butterfly w/gems and journaling strips were the only things I provided!!! OK, OK I'm shooshing!!!


Tell me what you think - yes, no, maybe so, don't ever scrap again Karen - be honest, I can take it!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!!!

There are so many things I love about your layout! You did a great job in flipping the sketch to suit you. Love the yellow/black/white colour combo; the fabric; the fun machine stitching; and the strips of journaling. Interesting photography also. GREAT job. TFS.

I love this. Like the way the journaling is done and love the color combo. great job.


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
