These photos were taken in Rome. They are the only three photos (for the entire 11 day trip!) that I took holding the camera at arm’s length. Even though I was traveling by myself, I was with a tour group and everyone was always willing to take my camera and snap a photo of me. But there wasn’t a good photographer in the bunch.
It was only on these last days that it finally occured to me to do the self posed, hold out your arm photos. I’m so glad to have them because it shows a unique perspective on the last few days of my trip. If you ever need a photo of yourself, don’t be afraid to hold out the camera and snap away. It feels a little silly at first, but in the end, you’ll be glad to have them!
- One of my pinwheels just happened to land on my table on top of a flourish square punch. It totally changed how the pinwheel looked! I mounted the pinwheel on the square flourish before I added it to the top left side of the page. Just another way to change up how it looks. More versatility. I love that!
- The button/paper clip on the bottom right side of the layout was created by me. It’s not one of the super cute KI Memories clip art buttons. These are just too easy to make yourself! I threaded my favorite crochet thread through the button holes before adding adhesive and attaching the button to the paper clip.
Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll be spending the rest of my week drooling over all the new sneak peeks all the scrapbook manufacturers are showing. What new product are you most looking forward to?
