Episode 76: All About Me Layout

Today's post is for the Creative Critterz Imaginations blog.  The theme this week is to make a layout about yourself.  I had a real hard time with this project because 1) I don't scrapbook and 2) I didn't know how to scrap about myself.  So I did a little searching online and found a LO that I liked to use for mine.

The page is 12x12 and the brown squares are 3.5"x3.5", the cream squares, which I embossed w/ the Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls embossing folder, are cut at 3.25"x3.25".

I was going to make my page have bright colors but since this page is about me I went w/ warmer tones.  I'm not a pastel, elementary, neon kind of girl.  I prefer browns, dark blues/greens/reds.  

All of the designer paper I used on the cuts are from the Vintage Damask Imagine cartridge.  The 12x12 sheet is from the Heirloom Imagine cartridge.  Even though I don't scrapbook or do anything about myself I had a lot of fun making this.  Watch the video to see what each block means, if you can't tell.  :)

Sorry the pictures aren't the best, I haven't figured out the best way to take a picture of a 12x12 sheet of paper.  :)

Pam, this is absolutely FABULOUS!!!! I love this style of LO and I'm going to have to make one for my girls (maybe even a new one each year as their likes and interest change). It was so fun to learn even more about you. I also love cross-stiching (which I haven't taken the time to do in years). And I absolutely LOVE musicals!!! Besides the other things we already have in common. This is awesome. And that picture of you with Tavis and Kyla is SO super adorable! I love it! Hugs- Glora

Hi Pam, I am a new follower, I really like your scrapbook page. Your doggies are so cute. Your video of your creation is very informative. It tells us so much about your life.
We have so much in common. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Pam, What book series are you reading.I just could not make out what your said. I too have a kindle and I am always looking for a good book to read.

You did a great job on your lo. I think it would have been hard to do a lo of myself too. Before I even looked at your lo, I thought of things that I knew were important to you that would go in your lo well and you used everyone that I thought of. I knew you were a Godly woman, you love your dogs, you're very crafty and talented. I figured you'd put a bible in there as well. You have so many wonderful attributes that I knew that if you just picked a few of them that your lo would be amazing and it is.
Great Job!
