Today I'm showcasing a layout of myself. It doesn't happen often, but sometimes it's nice to include myself in our family albums.

I used a sketch from ScrapMuch? for this layout. Another wonderful Laura Whitaker sketch. My favorite! I also used this page for a challenge from SG Scrap Squad. The Challenge was to create a layout using at least three gold items. I used a gold word sticker, gold sequins, and gold metallic thread. 

I'm in love with the colors in this layout. Everything just came together quickly, and I love how it turned out. I used chipboard hearts, enamel dots, and this cute button tied with gold thread for the embellishment cluster at the corner of my picture.

I based the color scheme off of the camera paper that I cut into strips. Everything worked so well together. The little brown bag behind the picture has been in my stash for a very long time. I love that I finally found the place to use it.

I used a Tim Holtz stencil and some coral Quick Quotes ink to add the dots on the page. I liked how it added so much detail with something so simple. 

Thank you for taking a look at my layout. Please leave me some blog love and let me know your thoughts.
