This Is Me

Marissa says, KAYA!

I love this picture of my niece's daughter, so mesmerized with the task that is set before her. I hope that for most of the time, the toys she would be given to play with is a sheet of paper and a few pieces of crayons.

Hannah, 1 year old; This is Me

Supplies Used:
AmandaMcGee-Bloom Paper-Pink [background]; AnitaLP Designs GoingToNana's dotted paper, solid peach & green scraps; AnitaLP Designs Country Delite green paper with white flowers; white paper with colored flowers; JenReed Heart & Soul MiniFlourish; Lively Cubic Stiches; AmyTeets 2Ps Series 1 crayon frame; MindyArmour Rhapsody-This is Me doodle

About Me:
I am Marissa, grand aunt to two darling one-year old girls. More into digital scrapbooking because time is the essence...there are just so many pictures to write about and digital scrapbooking is faster, cleaner, and cheaper.

I also love traditional scrapbooking. Two weeks ago I completed 41 pages of traditional LOs for my friend's officemate. It was very challenging as I was given a few stickers, few sheets of papers, a glue pen, and a week to complete everything!

Thank you for the comments.
To Anonymous, I used digital supplies ;D.
To achieve something like the "frame" used on the picture on a traditional LO, I suggest scratching the edges of your picture with something sharp like a safety or push pin. Take one of those rectangular erasers, push several pins through it, line them up close together and scratch the surface of your picture - you can design your own: flowers, a written word, etc. You can even color the scratches by carefully dabbing ink or liquid chalk on the scratched surfaces using a Q-tip.
Hope this helps.

Love the scrolls and stitching-effect especially the unraveled portion. Makes me want to take out my portable sewing machine. I have yet to master my sewing skills but the digital effect you did made me realize imperfect sewing looks great afterall and it just gave me a boost of confidence. Also, thanks for the great tip. Got to try it sometime :D

I love the papers you used. So girly and yet fun. Love the doodled "handwritten" title too. Thanks for the tip on how to achieve the same effect in a traditional LO.
