Me - Challenge YOUrself

I'm so excited to be a part of the Challenge YOUrself DT.  Today is the first reveal.  If you followed my link from the site, welcome!  If you are a regular follower of my blog, be sure to check out the newest challenge blog.  The concept is truly unique.
Challenge YOUrself #1: Behind The Lens
Create a layout using a self portrait or selfie AND list a minimum of 3 random facts about YOUrself.
I started this page by first taking about 50 selfies in the bathroom mirror.  In this pic, I cropped off my bathroom mirror frame as well as my camera, in which I was holding in my outstretched hand.
I also took this picture after I went to the hair stylist and had full make-up on.  Isn't that terrible!  This challenge blog is going to force me to be in more pictures, which is really what it should be.  Why do I have to participate in a challenge blog for this to happen?  Sad, isn't it?

I start out most of my pages the same way.  I search through my box of scraps to see what tickles my fancy.  I had this concept in my head before I started, so I knew the scrap sizes didn't need to be huge.
I laid them out and then found my BG.  Before gluing, I thought it looked too square (ha ha), so I added the circles with black marker and the stamp of the torn paper.

I have great handwriting, but seem to write on a slant, so I decided to type my random facts about myself.

Then I added the embellies...

Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see what you all create!  Have fun!


  1. Lisa, I love your creativity. Your layout is as stunning as you are. It's great once we let go and just "be" who we are. That's what this blog is all about after all! Leaving a bits and pieces of YOU and self-preservation :)

  2. Just beautiful page Lisa! Love the picture of you, you look so fresh and shiny <3

  3. You had me smiling about the 50 photo's! We are so silly about seeing ourselves in photo's and this is what it must feel like for our family when we scrap photo's of them! I love the mix of squares and circles - gives lovely movement on your page. Great take. xx
