I never show photos of myself, and I really don’t know why other than the fact that I’m always the one with camera. So for this week’s share I decided to do a little self-portrait layout.

From Flamingo Scraps: Prima: Innoscence 2 flowers, Marion Smith's Trinkets, Bling.
Other: Bo Bunny Razzi Mamma paper, Graphic 45 buttons, Lindy's Stamp Gang, Tim Holtz film strip tape, charms, Houseof3 digital file.

Yep – that is me with the big camera hanging out at a youth sports field taking action shots. I think every child in my area has been photographed by me at least once. For my self-portrait layout I included all my favs.

I used the Bo Bunny Razzi Mama paper for the layout, and then added a spray of my favs. Marion Smith’s Trinkets, Prima bling, and Prima Innoscence 2 Flowers, and of course Tim Holtz’s film strip ribbon.

The transparency at the top was melted with my heat tool to give it a little interest. I got the image from the House of 3 during the 21 day challenge. It has a lot of uplifting phrases to remind me to look at things differently and stimulate creativity.

Have you done a self-portrait? Every now and then it is healthy to let someone else take the photos.


  1. Love the layout and it's good to see you in it!

    What does it say about me if I do self-portraits often?! I love using the timer on my camera to take pictures of myself (though usually WITH someone else!)

  2. Loveeeeeeeeee this!! LOVING that photo of you and loveeeeeeeeeee the Mamarazzi line! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  3. Great layout Tonya! All the details work together beautifully and I really love the slightly melted look with the transparency.
