Me Scrapping Me

So much to do, so little time again and I am so far behind with my blog posts :-( I was supposed to blog this during May already!
I took part in the (INTER)NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING MONTH Chalenge over at Let’s Scrap (http://letsscrap.ning.com) and one of the challenges is to do a double page LO, using the sketch provided and scrap about yourself scrapping – you can check it out here : http://letsscrap.ning.com/forum/topics/insm12-6-scrap-yourself-scrapping 
The Sketch :
I hardly ever go to scrap groups nor scrap days or conventions, because I live in a little town in Namibia. So, I am the one teaching classes ;-) I also like to scrap with my daughter whenever we are together, but alas, that doesn’t happen very often. Other than scrapping with my DD, I prefer to scrap on my own, because I like to spread my stash out to pick and choose whatever I want ;-) . . . . ending up with a very untidy scrap roomLOL. I would never have done this LO out of my own! Now, Enikö got me out of bed very early on a PUBLIC HOLIDAY (4th of May 2012) so I could take a shower, get dressed and put lipstick on LOL - had to look pretty for the photos, don’t you think? I had to invade DH’s picture framing table, because my scrap table is stacked with half finished projects . I got the paparazzi to take pictures of me scrapping and after a photo shoot of 60 plus photos, these were the only ones I could really use :-(  It was late already and the light isn’t very good, so the photos are not fantastic!

Thank you Enikö - http://enikodelisle.typepad.com/enikos-playhouse - for a great sketch and challenge! I would never have done this LO out of my own!
