Where are the Memories of Me . . .

It was recently pointed out to me by my darling husband that in years to come when our children and grand children are looking back over my albums full of memories that there would be no record of me as I am reluctant to be in front of the camera, so I have decided to address this by making more effort to scrap myself - its going to be tough as it means having my photo taken but Im going to try to be in the frame more so watch this space. I have been sorting through old photo's of me too  and there could be, no make that will be, more LO's of me on the horizon.

So to kick off this new mission of scrapping myself I have done this layout, only the second one I have ever done that contains a photo of just me (the first being an old school photo of me aged 4 which you can see in this post). The title speaks for itself - 'Just Me'.  

I have used my gorgeous January Gotta Craft monthly kit which is full of Jenni Bowlin lushness in red and black. The small chipboard butterflies have been coloured with my promarkers and had a bling makeover. 

I love the blooms! The grey tone bloom is from Prima (which came in another kit). I pulled out the centre of the white bloom and coloured it red to co-ordinate better and the black bloom came with the January kit.

Thanks for stopping by,
