Me at 47

For this layout, I was inspired by sketch #139 over at Let's Capture These Sketches. What a great sketch! I also incorporated one of the monthly prompts at Scrappin-N-Chattin, which was to design a layout based on Me "at". So I chose now at age 47. WOW...47! I remember when that seemed like eons away. LOL

I did some hidden journaling on the reverse side of the tag. Actually, I just used words that describe me at this time in my life. Content, Happy, Stubborn, Creative, and Loved.

For the title I used chipboard pieces that I used gesso on, then painted them.
I made the frame by cutting 4 of the same designs on the Cricut, then adhered them together. I then applied a think coat of gesso and once dried, dabbed on some distress inks. You can see a tutorial I made previously HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!

LOVE this Theresa. What a great idea how you did the frame and gave it more dimension. I'll be trying that for sure.
Beautiful pic of you
