Lori Layout

Today’s challenge is All About ME!!! When you look at your photos, normally it is you behind the camera, or making the preparations, but normally not in the photos themselves!  So, with this link up party and challenge - you will get a bit of both worlds, link up your projects that you have done AND a challenge to start your own album!  Memories in Tyme will have WEEKLY challenges for your All About Me album to get you started on your journey celebrating YOU!

I am the last stop in this short and sweet hop, so if you stopped here first please go to see Lynda! After Lynda is Lisa and then me!

 Make sure you share with us via the links below so we can see what you have all been doing!!!  And we have a few giveaways scheduled for the whole two weeks of challenges, so check back on the very last day for a fun list of what we are giving away! Now - your challenge is to create or share with us one of your favorite All About Me layouts!   You will get an extra submission if, you used everything from your supply and didn't spend money on this layout!  I love doing my "All About Me" album, and I hope you guys will learn to love them just as much!  Now, go check out these two projects...I know I'm excited to see what everyone has done!

And now for my project:

I have been experimenting with CCR with my Imagine.  I grabbed this scalloped circle shape from Cricut Alphabet and filled it in with a pale pink paper with a subtle design from Yummy.  I added this L from Font 3 from Cricut Alphabet.  I also used a fun paper from Yummy.

I printed this out.  Right now the Imagine will only print with CCR (unless you go back to a previous version of the update) so I just hand cut the scallop circle out. 

I typed several words on my computer that describe me that also begin with the letter L:  lucky, lacks patience, layout creator, Lori's Learn 'N Play (the name of my in-home daycare), laid back, loves to read, laughs often, leader, lend (a helping hand - not money he he), Liberty Lane (the street I live on) and Live (with all boys).  I printed them out on cardstock and trimmed them into little banner pieces.

I wanted some flowers for my layout.  I got out my Gypsy at opened up Art Philosophy for the beautiful rolled flowers.  I sized them 4.29, 3.25, 2.76 and 2.29 inches.

I cut them out in these bright cardstock colors.

I used my awesome tweezers to roll them up from the outside in.  I used my Glossy Accents to glue the rolled flower to the center.

I welded my name from Quarter Note.  I sized the welded word 4.51 width x 2.53 height so it would fill the space I had at the top of my layout.

I cut it out in orange cardstock.

I put it all together and used this 12x12 frame without the glass.  I have it hanging in my scrapbook nook!!

Be sure to join in our challenge and create a layout all about you and link it up HERE.

This is adorable. I love the idea behind your layout. " All About Me" I haven't blog hopped in a while or posted anything to my blog in a while but this is going to give me the little push I need to get going again. Thanks
