Selfie time

There is a new blog called MORE THAN WORDS and l had time to play along with their first challenge.
It's a challenge with a word twist. A photo of yourself with a personality description!

How to describe myself is a challenge on its own.
I 'hope', which is the title on my layout, my personality is bubbly but l find if l am in a social gathering l can be a bit on the quiet side amongst people l don't know.
Yet my job entails talking to people everyday that are often strangers.
I don't really understand that.

However, here is my layout
I have used some old papers and embellishments and added masking and ink to my background.
A couple of close ups

I have embossed the chipboard photo corners and added distress stain.

Thanks for looking and enjoy your day :)

Let's Get Sketchy

Let's get Sketchy have a new sketch this week to play along with.
I flipped it to suit my photo.
Here is my layout
I have inked my background with black and yellow and decided to frame my photo with some twine. Added some lace down one side and some hessian like ribbon under the other side.
There is a great prize to win, as usual, if you can join us this week.
