last night i was trying to scrap ... and just couldn't really decide on anything to scrap about. nothing grabbed my attention. i had no special stories that i was dying to get down on paper. then i wandered around the house taking photos of things (to catch up my project 365 album) ... and i happen to take this self-portrait shot in my bathroom mirror.
didn't include my face at all ... i had just gotten a haircut and couldn't stand the straight style they gave me. this is my typical look ... jeans, a tshirt, and a lightweight sweater hoodie. it's what i wear almost every day. anyways ... decided to play around with this photo and create something just for fun.
i love how this turned out. didn't worry about what product i was going to use ... or spend forever digging through papers and stuff. just pulled out this sheet of bazzill swiss dot cardstock ... and started laying everything down. added a nice, wide strip of brown polka dot ribbon down one side ... with a few mini brads. very simple and easy.
these are all tags that i've been saving from jeans that i've bought over the last 2 years or so. anytime i have an interesting tag ... i save it. i have quite a collection of them now. i actually used some on this album page HERE, that i made quite a while back. just a fun way to use them on my scrapbook pages ... and have them to look back on. and a nice addition to my "all about me" album.

and yes, i'm working on catching up my project 365 album. i was a little behind. i know i havn't shared photos here for almost a month or so. but i have been working on it still. i had a lot of photos for the last few weeks ... but i was also short some photos. so yesterday, i went around and took a bunch of "filler photos" to complete the days that i was lacking. had them all printed today. and was arranging them in the album tonight ... getting them all in a nice order. i went to fill out the weekly date cards ... and realized that i'm now actually AHEAD by an entire week. lol! i'm not sure where i calculated wrong ... but i had an extra week in there. so i'll be moving those around some ... since we have quite a few things going on this week that i'll want photos of. i do have 8 weeks of journaling to complete. i had no idea i was that behind on the journaling. but i'll get them done. and then i'll share the completed weekly layouts.
