bits about me

I'm here today with my very first DT layout for Challenge YOUrself!  It's a new challenge blog with today being their "grand opening" reveal and I'm so excited to be part of this!

The challenge for December is "Behind the Lens".  You must scrap yourself, using a self portrait or selfie and list a minimum of 3 random facts about yourself as well.  As popular as selfies are today, this is a perfect challenge, but remember it must be a pic of YOU!

and now for my design

For this layout I used a 12x12 white hexagon placemat by Jillibean Soup.  Since placing it over white cardstock I inked the inside edges to give it some pop!  I then, randomly, added some little bits of wooden accents all over the page.  Mind you, that's how I decided on the "bits" in my title.

Here are some close ups for better viewing

I did some fussy cutting around my flowers for my cluster

This is a great way to use up those misc wooden accents!

Now its your turn!  I sure hope to see some familiar faces give it a try!  A random winner will be chosen for a $20 gift certificate to Paper Issues, so be sure to link up before Jan 5, 2014 for your chance to win!  That gives you a full month!  Complete challenge rules are explained here.  For more inspiration check out Challenge YOUrself now and become a follower so you don't miss out on our monthly challenges!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the day and happy scrapping to you.
