So, the DT gals told me I stretched their creativity this week, but loved doing the challenge! I am glad - that is what a challenge is for, right?? To stretch that creativity?? So, I chose to do a two page 12x12 layout. I decided to base my about me page on pieces of me that make me who I am. I loved doing this, it really made me thankful for all I have in my life, and those special people in it who touch my life and make it better!
Here are some close ups of the two pages that make up my layout - the paper line is from Sassafrass Lass and is available at Coconut Scrapshop! The stamped letters for the title are Stampin' Up! Best Friends Alphabet Upper, which is retiring soon:-( The jigsaw puzzle pieces are from the awesome Stamps for a Cause Set Gina K designed to raise money for Autism Awareness called Love You to Pieces - what a fabulous stamp set for a very worthy cause! As you all know, I don't buy other companies stamps, but I will ALWAYS Gina's Stamps for a Cause sets because she donated a portion of each sale to the that cause and I love that! I hope you all will join in my challenge - and check out the other DT members take on this, they ROCKED it, I am tellin' ya!! They made beautiful layouts!! And, if you make your own, make sure you upload it to the Stamp Something site, there is special blog candy available for this one - Jen from the Coconut Scrapshop generously donated a $15 Gift Certificate for the lucky winner! Whooohooo - she has such fabulous stuff in her store, and many of the CHA products are already arriving and in stock. Isn't this awesome??? Thanks Jen, you are such a sweetie!! So, get to scrappin' ladies, I can't wait to see what you come up with! Okay, I have blathered on long enough, have a wonderful weekend!
