Teeny Tiny Me

Scrap 365 - June 2015
I'm 'supposed' to be working on my cruise album, but I'm easily distracted into other pages when inspiration strikes. This time the distraction was a sketch challenge in a Facebook group that I belong to. It's a sketch that I knew wasn't going to fit in with my cruise album, but I had the perfect photo sitting on my desk.

It's an old passport photo of me, taken in 1980 I think. I have no idea how it's survived so long as it hasn't been kept in a special place. 

The photo is tiny, just 4cm by 4.5cm, so I used a chipboard frame and a doily to increase its space on the page. I rarely use pink for my pages, but I took the opportunity to use it here. My background is an embossed paper from Pebbles, and I raided my pink scraps for the other pieces. I love the enamel butterfly but I've not had a good opportunity to use it before, so I'm really pleased to have it out of my stash and onto a page. I journalled about the photo on a Project Life card which is tucked behind the page, attached to the layers at the top where it can be pulled out easily and read.
