A layout long due.

Sometimes we are too busy documenting our loved ones in our layouts we forget to dedicate one all to ourselves. I have been putting off scrapbooking this photograph for a long long time now.. Mostly because I didn't have the 'perfect paper' the 'perfect embellishments' etc... These are the excuses we make to put things off..

But here it is, finally a page about me:-) I didn't add a title as I wanted the photograph to do the talking, this is by far the most favourite photograph of me.. I made sure I mentioned that in the journalling! It's not always I find myself in a photograph looking or feeling pretty. And here I really feel pretty, feminine and all other lovely things that goes with being a girl!

I love the Pink Paislee papers I used here, the roses and the pretty hydrangea give out a carefree vibe.. I also used some My Minds Eye and a couple of Girls Paperie die cuts.

I included this pretty wood birdcage by Kaiser Kraft! Simply loving it:-)

To add some texture I embossed a Hero Arts Dot background stamp in Gold! Love how it turned out.. I used a Versamark pen and made it look patchy:-)

Thank you for visiting me today!

Hope you have a great week!
