25 Small Things...Digi Layout

Happy Wednesday! You might be wondering whatever happened to the Type_Writer class I've been taking, seeing as I haven't mentioned it lately. We are half way through Week 2 and I am plugging along...slowly. I was distracted first by the girls being out of school. Then I got distracted again by deciding to move my craft space. The beauty of Jessica Sprague's classes is that you have access to the lessons forever, so if life gets in your way, you can work at your own pace.

This afternoon I managed to finally finish the second layout for class. Jeanne-TW-25SmallThingsWe were to share 20 small things about us. I realized that in order to fill the text circles (because I didn't like leaving blank space) I added a few extra items and ended up with 25 small things. LOL 

I chose to use a photo of me from this summer so it may look familiar to you. Ü Creating a layout about oneself is difficult to do because we are our own worst critic about how we look, but Jessica and Liv firmly believe every one of us is beautiful and even shared a photo with us telling us that before we launched into creating this layout. With that in mind, I'm striving to like this photo, perceived flaws and all. Ü

I didn't feel the papers that came in our kit worked really well with the colors in my photo, so I chose to use papers from Misty Cato's newly re-released kit Richer from Sweet Shoppe Designs. (She remade her first ever kit and Richer is the result).

Maybe tonight I can start the next lesson?

Thanks for stopping by...

Trying again . . . I LOVE this layout. You have the most beautiful, natural smile, and I'll bet your eyes, hidden behind the dark glasses, sparkle when you smile, too! The quote is beautiful, and I had to make the photo larger to try to read some of those "little things." What a treasure you are. As for Erin beating me to the punch/post, she's cool, and I don't mind letting her take the honors. LOL.
