Self-Portrait Layout


This is way artsier than my normal style, (although the shabby chic elements are obviously still present) but it was so fun! I couldn't wait to use the transparency from Pink Paislee, and I integrated some of my art into the background, which I have never done before.

I am attempting a month long moratorium on the purchasing of scrapbook supplies. Jesse and I had a bet, and the winner got $20 at costco to buy a prize. ( I would have bought the Inkadinkado stamps they have right now, thus breaking my moratorium already, oh the shame) We both lost the bet (the current price of a case of chicken broth) so we bought a joint prize instead, this starbucks gift basket, with his and her mugs...I think it shows how we are starting to really come together as a couple, finally!
