About Me...

Today I wanted to share a layout I made that was inspired by the 213 in 2013 prompts over at 2Ps. I really liked the prompts this week and they inspired me to do a layout almost straight away. This weeks prompts were:
1. Start with colors you love.
2. Try out arrows.
3. Scrapbook about yourself.
4. Play with fun paperclips.
I only chose to do three of them (although there is a paper clip so I guess I touched on the fourth) but changed the first a little, instead of my favourite colour, I used my favourite papers at the moment which are from Crate Paper's The Pier Collection. 
I decided to bring out the typewriter to do my journalling on velum. It was a bit of a disaster, I kept messing up the text and having to start again. I am not sure I like the typewriter, I am thinking about selling it because I just got a new printer and there are lots of typewriter fonts available and I think it is less trouble. I'll see.

Before I go I just wanted to let you all know that my first reveal at Scrap Our Stash will be coming up on the 14 of this month and the challenge is Red, White & Blue plus stars. The challenge is open already and you can find all the details HERE. Here is a little sneak of what I made.
Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you are all having a fantastic week.
