LOAD512 - Day 1 - Fabulous

Am I crazy? Well, I think we already established that in February. And, here we are again with another Lay out a day challenge. Considering I haven't scrapped at all since Feb. 29, I'd say this is just what the doctor ordered. Because, guess what? When I don't scrap??? I am CRA-A-A-NKY! I need this creative outlet.

The theme for LOAD512 is Out of the Box. I'm excited to see what prompts Lain has in store for us. The prompt for Lain Ehmann's Layout a Day (LOAD512) challenge for Day 1 was - Self Portrait.
Considering HALF of the 29 layouts that I created in February were about me, this prompt isn't really pushing me outside of my comfort zone. So, I didn't truly take this prompt to heart. I did do a page about me, but more so about my girlfriends from high school. I already had this picture printed and decided to take the easy route, rather than really dig into the recesses of my photo stash and introspection for a true self portrait.

I hope tomorrow's outside the box prompt has something to do with birthdays, because I have at least 10 birthday layouts to catch up on!

Journaling Reads: These girls are fabulous! From their shoes, to their hair, to their hearts, to the belly-laughs we share. Enduring friendships and love.
Some observations about the process and the products used:

  1. Stampin' Up patterned paper.

  2. Fabulous is a Heidi Swapp silhouette.

  3. I need a new white pen.

  4. This is what happens when you accidentally print a picture for the wrong size frame...use it on a scrapbook page!

  5. Since this photo was taken when Ashton was barely 3 months old, I should have journaled a story about how much I miss and how in love I am with those FABULOUS nursing boobs.
