Selfie Challenge

Hello all!

I've got a last minute entry today for the selfie challenge over at Shimelle's blog. I am so excited about all the fun new things happening at her blog right now. There is so much inspiration it's got me wanting to make about 3 or 4 new pages already. I've settled for one this weekend. =) I lifted the design entirely from Shimelle's take on the selfie challenge which she shared here. Without further ado, here's my take:

Ironically, I just did a selfie page featuring my cat and I. I have to admit I felt a little weird scrapping another photo of myself. =P This one is my partner-in-crime and I at the Space Needle. Despite the fact that I have lived in Seattle my whole life, this was only my second time visiting the Space Needle. We were playing tourists on this particular occasion, so we definitely needed to take a selfie at the top. =)

Almost everything on this page is from a kit I put together for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge for this month, which I will be posting tomorrow. (Normally I would post the kit first, but I had to get this page posted for the challenge).

I did manage to sneak a tiny bit of Shimelle's new Starshine collection in for this center embellishment. I just got the paper pad this last week and it is SO. BEAUTIFUL. I may have squeed a few times. =P This little bit is a card from one of the cut apart sheets. I embossed the globe stamp from the collection around the flower and then stamped a couple of the words from the set in some grey ink. I also stamped the little camera onto my journaling area. Once I started using these adorable little stamps I couldn't stop! =)

My embellishment clusters feature some old Dear Lizzy stickers, some Tim Holtz word stickers, and some older Studio Calico butterfly stickers. I love these stickers so much I bought two sheets of them. I'm going to be really sad when I use them up.

I'm feeling pretty good about this page because it means I've already met my goal for this month! I might even get more than one page in this month. =D

Thanks so much for looking!



  1. Lovely! I've used that triangle paper somewhere too (I always enjoy spotting papers that are or have been in my own collection).

  2. What a pretty layout! Your butterflies are a cute addition and the gold lettering is perfect. Reading your journaling, I'm reminded that I must see more of Sydney.

  3. Adorable photo and the page is really cute. Love it.

  4. Embossed globe - whaaat?!? AWESOME
    Have you done this?
    (I'm kind of a combination of grossed out/intrigued...)

    1. I seem to remember walking by the gum wall once or twice, but I've never had any of my own gum to add to it. =P It is sort of a combination of gross and cool. The city actually cleaned it all off recently and people were really upset! But my understanding is that they do that every once in a while and then it starts all over with new gum. =)

  5. Lovely page - that embossed globe is such a clever way to transform a sticker!

Thank you to everyone who takes the time to comment. I really appreciate your kind words and encouragement! =)
