MORE THAN WORDS - jANUARY..

Hello there, I hope your day is going well!

There is a new challenge blog called MORE THAN WORDS which is a word challenge with a twist...and their first challenge is a doozie!! And it is..
To use a selfie and also be inspired by the word "personality".
Well I am not good at taking selfies, my kids are expert at it, but me... not so much.. however I did find a photo that I had taken last year because I wanted a  more recent photo for a DT post..  I took so many photos, and deleted all but one!! How do you get that perfect angle is beyond me!! hehe..  So ok, got the photo.. now what about the personality???  humm.. perhaps I will explain as I show some closer views of the layout..

Ok layers, yes I have layers, I do not show the inner most parts of myself to just anyone and you will need to spend time with me to see what is inside of me.. Fussy cutting.. yes I can be fussy.. I like certain things just right, I have to be fussy with what I eat as I am a coeliac and cannot have gluten, that was medically diagnosed and I have to stick with it..The butterflies speak to me of being free and I have a free spirit and do not like to feel cornered. And white signifies purity, I guess with that I mean I try to keep my thoughts  pure and my life good.

Flowers, yes I love flowers in my life and on my scrap pages, and there is some glitter glue on my page so I do like girly things. The colors are feminine and I would consider myself a girly girl and love pretty things.

and my layout..

This is me..
So there you have it... there is so much of me on this page.. I dont wear much makeup but do like to have some lippy on..  I am getting more silver in my hair now than gold!!  And there are wrinkles where the smiles have been..!! hehe..

Thanks to MORE THAN WORDS for your first challenge which has been quite a challenge!!!

Thanks for coming by and thanks so much for the lovely comments you leave me too..

  24. Such a pretty photo of you...love how you described your page and how it related to you! Beautiful creating. I can't take selfies.......recently I put up a FB pic of me, half my head and our of focus! I asked my daughters why they hadn't "liked" it. Its not in focus! I told them I did it for a reason and it was major " Soft focus" ...hmmm don't think they understood! Good luck in the challenge
