I don’t take enough photos of myself. What mom does, right? I’m usually the one behind the camera, and let’s face it- the kids are cuter then I am! When I do remember to take the shot though, I always try to get it in their albums. Because making and preserving memories is what we scrapbookers do!
This layout was taken at a church event, but it’s not really about that. To me, this photo shows me, as a baby-wearing mama who was hanging with her baby because that’s what I do. It’s kind of my favorite.
One the topic of favorites, this layout uses a collection from Kaisercraft that I adore. I did a little misting on the background, but the focus of the page is on those fussy-cut filmstrips, directing the eye to the photo. I added some flowers and embellishment, but kept it simple. After all, it’s all about that photo.
Can’t beat that fantastic color palette. I think it does a good job not making the page overly feminine, even with flowers. Someday, this baby that is my son will appreciate that.
Go, take a photo of yourself today!
