Perfectly imperfect!

Alright ladies, game on!
I actually rose to the challenge and completed my page! Can you believe it? I can't!

You will need to view it on my Picasa page because I am Mac illiterate and can't figure out how to change the file type to import the pictures here.

My challenge color is pink. I don't get to use pink very often because I am usually making pages about my son (he doesn't look so good in pink). I happened to find this paper that had all these wonderful words that described ME. I printed a picture that I actually like of myself in color, then resized and made that same picture a sepia tone and blurred the edges to add a little artsy flavor (thought about Sharon as I was working on that). I formed the pictures into a sort of corner frame to frame the larger color picture.

I circled a number of the words that were already on the paper, that I really felt described ME.

Then I added "MOM" which was a premade sticker, "wife" I cut out using the Cricut, cutting each letter 5 times and stuck them all together to make the word pop. The last thing I did was write additional words to describe ME on my title letters. One of my favorites is "perfectly imperfect"...Why? Because I don't care about perfection...and if you really look closely at my page you would see that I didn't try to cover up the mishaps that happened when cutting out letters.

Hope you like it. It's perfectly imperfect and I love it!

Oh, and I had to add a blue flower just because blue is my favorite color! :)

Jenn, it looks AWESOME! I love the paper you used! Isn't it crazy how 3/4 people (so far) have chosen to use photos of themselves?

Ohh..I like it. Very well done!!

PS You should have Nicole add a picture of you to the page. That way the group is complete! :-)
