All About Me!

Good Morning!

Back at the start of a new week. Sure hope you had the opportunity to visit Creative Critterz Imaginations Blog all last week and see the Cute Critter cards and they were CUTE and most of the posts had great videos as well. I'm lacking in that area but will look into the possibility of doing a video in the meantime you will have to put up with my still shots.
Our task this week was to scrapbook a page about ourselves. I love to scrapbook but not about me! It took me most of the week to do get it done...not because I didn't have an idea  but had too many ideas. lol
My first thought when this challenge was posted was there are a lot of different things in my life that influences who I am. That's where the puzzle idea came in. There's an app at the site Big Huge Labs that lets you turn any picture into a jigsaw puzzle.
To make the puzzle mat the Gypsy was called on to weld together puzzle pieces together from
"My Community" cartridge. All the individual puzzle pieces where cut on the silhouette feature from this cartridge at 1.7".

                              As the journalling is small I wanted you to be able to see it.
The two flowers are from Flower Shoppe cut at 2" & 1.5". What you see here is my first two attempts at the flowers from this cartridge. Second one went together easier.
This is what it looks like when it has been printed and cut with the Imagine. The blue flower I changed out for a green one!

                                                  I like to distress the paper a little with ink.
                                                    Don't forget to shape the flowers a little.
Glueing them together Glossy Accents by Ranger. Any quick drying glue will work.

Cartridges used - Blossom - all the pattern paper
                          - Country Carnival - for the title and substituted Blossom colors
                          - Home Decor - swirl under "Me" - 1.1"
                          - Flower Shoppe
Other items
Grafix Rub - Onz Transfer Film

Thanks for stopping by...I always enjoy the visit.
