Just Me

I've had this layout planned for ages.  The photo is the first one I ever tried to take of myself nearly 2 years ago now.  I thought it was about time I featured in my own albums now and then!  

I wanted to use lots of the things I love so I included some of my favourite hoarded papers and ribbons, lots of pink and aqua, pieces of craft packaging, music paper, book style paper and cupcake transparency.  

This little chipboard house is a nod to my love of being at home.  There is bunting, hearts and roses, oh my! Everything on the page is special to me and relevant.  Its about what I liked at that time (which is much the same as now really!)

Of course what I really like is scrapping with my friends and eating delicious things like cakes and chocolate and chips.  However I am being very very good with my eating at the moment (more on that in another post)  so on Saturday I will be scrapping with my friends and eating fruit and a jacket potato!  Still, as long as I am playing with paper I am happy.  To be honest it will make a lovely change from the other playing with paper that I have been doing which is ripping it from our hallway walls.  I am literally twitching.  I despise the disruption that decorating causes but I hope to goodness it will be over quickly and worth it in the end.  Sing with me now "This too shall pass"... :-)

Bye for now


  1. LOVE the LO..and to get a peek at you..and yes, it will pass and you will have a newly decorated hall to be pleased with!

  2. That's a pretty LO for a lovely lady! It raises an interestin point...if ever I were to do a LO for myself, what colours would I pick?? I think that would make for an interesting question to put to the WOYWWers!

    I know I'm a bad girl succumbing to the sparkly, beady goodness... but d'ya know what. It's something I've always wanted to do and I spent about a twentieth of what a designer pair of shoes would have I'm happy with that! I'm also going to recycle a lot of my lovely bead jewellery that I just don't wear. Be firm, LLJ, stand fast....*grin*
    Hugs xxxx

  3. What a lovely picture of you and a fantastic layout. I often say to my boys that when I am gone they will forget what I looked like as there are so few pictures of me!

    I'm thinking of having a photo shoot with Kirsty as a birthday present to myself!


  4. a very pretty page Lisa-Jane and good to see you on it too x

  5. Great pic of you and so many yummy bits of stash layered on the page. Lots of loveliness to look at :o)

  6. Wow!! I love this!! Lovely pic of you and love how every element is there for a reason!!

    Mmmm... fruit & jacket spud on Saturday .... so I won't bring the minstrels then??!!! x

  7. Love, love, love this layout! All the layers, the colors, the embellies... perfection! Great photo too! Kudos to you for deciding to get a layout of YOU! :)

  8. I love the design of your page and how you thoughtfully included things that had meaning for you. Hope your decorating project goes smoothly and quickly. I don't like those disruptions either. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  9. ..or nothing lasts forever, as my old Grandpa used to say :) This is a beautiful page - I love your glasses!

  10. Great page - love the variety of touches you've added here. And yes, you should be in your own scrapbooks often!

  11. That's a great photo of you. I like photos that are eclectic and off beat and not the traditional portrait style. It is more fun that way. I think it is a great idea to do a page on you and use all your favorite hoarded pieces on it. It is a good way to use them and to enjoy them over and over as you look at that page.


Hi there! Thanks for leaving me a message! It always makes me smile when someone stops by and says hello :-)
