Our first design team assignment was to create a layout about ourselves. This is rare for me, but I'm working on making selfie projects happen more often. My biggest hang up is that there aren't many photos of me. Like most of you, I'm sure, I'm typically behind the lens. But that's no excuse, right? --especially when our phones have that handy dandy little button that flips the camera around (CAUTION: If you're not quite ready when you hit the button and have the phone too low it is double chin city, yikes. Seriously. It's not pretty... you've been warned.).
Here's my project....
and now for the fun part... a giveaway! I'm going to give one lucky winner the NEW Amy Tangerine premium ribbon value pack from the Cut & Paste line and a Dear Lizzy roller date stamp...
Just leave a comment telling me what your favorite dance move is (I need some new moves people) and I will pick a winner by Monday, September 9th. Oh, and feel free to follow my blog so you can see what else I create with American Crafts fabulousness (I promise not to post photos of my chins).
Next up on the blog hop is the super talented Kelly Goree.
What a pretty layout - i love the soft colors! A dance move??? Do i even know one?! We've been learning the Gangnam Style dance at Zumba lately - i have to say it's grown on me :PReplyDelete
Hahah, I can't dance - I don't know any dance move :PReplyDelete
Your layout is beautiful! ♥
Beautiful layout!!! For dance moves--yeesh! If you ask my hubby, he'll say I'm a good dancer (he's still stuck in the 70s..that's all I will say about him...lol) I just go with the flow...and with some upbeat music, watch out world! :)ReplyDelete
Just keep moving! lol Nice page.ReplyDelete
Such a pretty layout!ReplyDelete
Lovely! Love to zumbaReplyDelete
My favorite dance move is the Gangnam Style dance... it's the only one I know!ReplyDelete
WHat a pretty page!!ReplyDelete
No dance advice from me - this girl ain't got no rhythm!! ;)
Smart title! Thanks for the giveaway.ReplyDelete
that is really pretty!ReplyDelete
Not sure I have any well known, named dance moves ... I just let the music move me while my children laugh hysterically and beg me to never dance in public. Sorry I can't be more helpful than that!ReplyDelete
Love your selfie and you are right, you gotta experiment with the angles! Congrats and welcome to the team!ReplyDelete
cant dance! but looking at tom cruise dancing to apple bottom jeans in Tropic Thunder cracks me up!
tks for the giveaway (:
Pastel colours are my favourite, and you've made such a pretty LO. :)ReplyDelete
PS. I don't dance.
Ha! This is too cute! I'm not sure what I would've done had I been asked to do a layout about myself lol. It's kind of an intimidating task. Honnestly I am terrible at dancing and I'm afraid I would probably hurt your repertoire of dance moves lol. TFSReplyDelete
Super cute. Thanks for the chance.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous layout. And you are too funny about the double chin. I'm always worrying about my angles. I'm a follower of your blog now. I love it!ReplyDelete
