Goals 2011

This is a page I did for my Design Team Challenge today over at Scrapbook Challenges. Many of the members are working on an ABC's of me album. I personally wasn't going to do that because I'm just not comfortable scrapping myself. I guess that's the point of a challenge, but I just wasn't really up to doing the whole alphabet.
However, my DT assignment this month was to start off letter G for everyone. I was planning on doing a "Girly Girl" layout, because I am definitely one of those lol. But then one night I just woke up and this page was in my head. It happens that way sometimes for me. And, now I think an ABC's of me album is sort of a fun idea. But I don't think I'll use the words that the DT member gives me. I want to make it truly my own.
Anyway, I hope you like it. The best part about this whole layout is that everything I used was from my stash except the fabric for the flower. I didn't have any fabric at all so I had to buy that because I just had to have a fabric flower on there.
Papers are all from Graphic 45. I have such a love for these papers, but I find it hard to come up with things to use them on. So I was really happy to be able to use them on this.
Lace is BoBunny, flourishes are from Zva Creative, center brad in left flower is from BoBunny, red button is BoBunny, green button Sassafras, gingham green ribbon is Offray, ric rac is American Crafts, Sticker letters are My Minds Eye, and the black 2011 is done using a Dymo label maker. Phew. I thought the list was shorter lol.
I also used this for a challenge that a fellow DT member at Let's Scrap issued. To see that, please visit at here and look up Challenge85 in the photos tab. Basically, the challenge was to use three of the textured items on her list and include a handmade embellishment on your layout to add dimension to your pages. My items used from her list were fabric, buttons, flowers, ric rac, lace, ribbon, and metal. My handmade items were the flowers, stamped butterfly, and Cricut cut title frame.
Thanks for looking and for reading my super long post lol. I didn't mean to write a novel!
