Right Now...at 34


I gotta warn y'all right off the bat that this is a photo heavy post...not really heavy but more than I normally post. Thanks to Crate Paper's fabulous Restoration Kit there were so many details I needed to capture in my LO. First I must say that this kit is truly awesome! The papers are just divine, I love their texture & the vintage appeal they have. Plus, all the extra punch outs & cardstock stickers are so groovy!!

 
This is the second LO of myself I've done this week because I've realized that I very rarely scrap photos of myself. Like most of you, I am always the one behind the camera & I always scrap everyone else in the family. But, I recognized that I needed to scrap myself as well so here is another one to go in the album. I wanted this one to focus more on who I am at this very moment, what's in my life right now that makes me...well, me. And this line from Crate Paper suited that purpose to at "T."


Supplies
All items from Crate Paper's Restoration Kit except:
Tiny Type - Cosmo Cricket 
Brown Thickers - American Craft
Distress Ink - Tim Holtz (walnut stain)
Floral Ribbon - Offray
Adhesives - Glue Glider Pro, Pop Dots, Aileen's Fast Grab Tacky Glue

 
As always, I wanna say thanks so much for stopping by! For those of you who leave me comments, they make every day extra special & I value them so very much. Y'all are awesome & I count my blessings that I've been lucky enough to make so many wonderful friends through my crafty endeavors! Make sure to check back in a couple days for another Your Memories Here post, a Paper Issues post & new linking party, and a very special post because I'm the Guest Designer next week over at The Paper Variety! Woo-Hoo! How exciting is that?! I simply can't wait for my Wednesday reveal! Until then, Happy Craftin'!
