From Where I Stand *Chic Tags*

I love scrapping myself. Some will say self-indulgent but the truth is, I think we're often so busy scrapbooking about the kids' multiple faces, the vacations, the birthdays, the significant other, the siblings, the pet etc - that we forget to document us.

I do things for myself all the time. Especially now that the girls are older and able to fend for themselves for a couple of hours even when Sam is not around. That 'alone time' time is so important for me to be not just a better mom, but a better person all around. :)

I love me to love you - that's what I always say.

From Where I Stand

Are you a loner? I think I am, in a way. I really prefer my own company most of the time. I get easily overwhelmed when I need to spend a lot of time with other people. I don't know if that's a good thing, or a bad thing! LOL.

I'm sure I look a little bit weird while I was setting up the iphone to take a picture of myself, but hey, it only took one try and was quite painless when done on a weekday morning when there are less people at the beach. :D

I found the quote on Pinterest one day and I knew then that it will end up on a layout just like this.

I printed the quote on one of the Let's Go Cards. I got lucky and got them all lined up nicely this time. I confess, this doesn't happen all that often and I danced a little to celebrate. :D

You can never go wrong with butterflies and sequins, if you ask me. :) I cut apart and rearranged Cloud 9 Rub-On sheet and added some wood veneer sequins because they're oh just so adorable in my opinion!

 I added the From Where I Stand flair button, printed 'Me, Myself & I' on a label sticker, added some enamel dots and call it done and I'm loving this layout.

What about you? Link me up or tag me on instagram if you're scrapping about yourself this weekend!

I think I am becoming a bit more of an introvert the older I get, I too need a break from people and events to keep myself sane and de-stress to be a good mom! I love the way you printed the photo into a grid, its a great effect!

I think you sound like someone - ME!

I love my own company, so much so that I decided to go on a solo trip this year.

And I love to cross stitch! I fell in love with it since I was 7-8 and though I keep stopping and starting, it always come back to cross stitch.

I am too busy to cross stitch now, but I am sure I will get back to it once my commitment (part time study) is done.

I love to see what you stitch! Loving all the Lizzie Kate as well! :)

I agree totally with that quote. I was in a group of girlfriends, but never felt part of the group for years, felt extremely lonely and depressed eventhough i was constantly surrounded by them. Thought I was being weird till i read your quote. Glad that I am not weird after all. Thank you sasha!

Hugs, Elaine Teo
