This page is to be sent to someone in a support for weightloss group. She wanted 12 x 12 and I have never made one, especially not about me! It literally took me ALL day to do it and I will have to be satisfied with the outcome. I only had Night of Navy paper the correct size so I had to improvise on the rest. I embossed the whole paper with the blue EP that came from the regal tone SU! EP stack. It looks so nice. I love it. However, it was hard to line up the dots & daisies bg stamp. So, I covered the problem areas with paper and pictures. Do you have advice for me? I now see that I should have put a title up top but I didn't know what. Also, My favorite font is Vivaldi so I typed my name in word and blew it up so I cold see it well. Then I hand copied what I saw. I love how it came out. In fact, that's my favorite part of the whole page, besides the embossing..lol TFL

I've never made a page about myself. I think that would be hard. It's hard for me to include pics of me on regular pages. ugh! Maybe I'll give it a shot and make a "me" page. I think it's a good thing to do. Your's turned out very nice.

Great page - I LOVE the background stamping/ep'ing - it's beautiful! Your name is a great title and Becky is right about it being in a great place as well. I really like that you did a page about yourself and included journaling in your handwriting. Also great stamping

Great job with your first 12X12!! I love all the stamping on this page. What a great job with the embossed background - it looks nice! The butterfly stamped on one of your journal boxes is a nice touch. I agree with the other comment about having a title.. you don't need one because your name is title enough! TFS!!

Beautiful Page! The layout is wonderfully done. Love the font used for your name, and how you shared that it is your favorite font, makes it even more special. This really isn't YOUR FIRST 12x12 is it?! AND are you sure you didn't coordinate "night of Navy' color with your old 'Navy' shirt :) You look radiant!!

This is soo good! I am happy you did it! It's very hard to make a page about yourself. I have yet to attempt that. Although I am trying to inch my way there and do one of Jason and I, without an event being the whole reason. I love the embossing and the the journaling, the butterfly stamped over your journaling is great! My fav part is your name too! You did a great job at writing it out. I love the flowers you cut out as well. When did you cut your hair?? We need some web cams. As a matter of fact, I will have to get you one.. I haven't seen you in a while. A very long while! Ok got to go look at your other stuff. I have been cleaning and making trades all day. I am planning to get out of my hamsty (hopefully transfered into a Monk House before I leave) and go get some Chinese food. But I have to hurry off here to accomplish my goals for the day.
OK, Love you,
