My Story

I have a challenge up on the October Afternoon blog today. Something very simple yet many of us always forget. Scrap yourself. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. :D

I know.. I know, I just used that photo on my last layout. But hey, this is a totally different story. And I love that photo of me, I think I look healthy here! Like, in the 'pink of health' if you know what I mean. :D

I kept it simple because really, underneath all that make-up, that's what I am. Took the journaling from my instagram post for this very same photo. 
If you look closely, I even used some Saturday Mornings here. I made the single, somewhat-oversized banner I used as my photo mat by cutting up Toast PP and covered the rest of the 'Shhhh...' Word Sticker so it's suitable for my layout. I love that 'the good life' tin pin because really, I'm wanting to be more aware of my blessings and yes, indeed I have 'the good life' :) And how cute is that vintage cameo brad from Public Library? I will never be able to carry that 'Downton Abbey~ish' style, but a girl can dream!
Play along will you? Tag me on Instagram if you do!

Mwah!! xoxo
