Challenge YOUrself January Challenge - Anything Goes!

Happy 2016 Everyone!!  
I wish you and your families 
Good Health and Happiness this coming year.  
May 2016 be filled with ONLY Wonderful things! 
  
Since everyone has probably been very busy this past Holiday Season, The Challenge YOUrself Blog is here to help you get back into your "Scrappy/Creative Mode" with a FUN, EASY 
"ANYTHING GOES!" Challenge!  
That's right - you can create and enter any layout in this challenge -
*As long as it has a photo with YOU in it!!

to see all the Challenge Rules/Deadlines and PRIZE Info too!
I decided to use a favorite "Selfie" photo of my oldest son Nick and I, from a vacation back in 2013.  I can't believe how short I am, or how tall he is! LOL!  Anyway, I LOVE this photo of us on the beach, in North Topsail Beach, NC.

I had lots of fun layer papers from Imaginesce's "Perfect Vacation" paper line!  I love the cool color combo of this line!!  I used "Say Cheese," "Good Times," and "Random Stripes."
LOVE LOVE LOVE the 3D Foam Amy Tangerine "Grace" Thickers- they just pop with all the bright colors!  The white Uniball Gel Pen pops on the black tag too!

I used 3D foam tape to make a pocket behind the photo to add a journaling tag, which has a double washi tape pull.
Washi Tape and Flair are some of my favorite embellies, and also a little Bling too - always gotta have some Bling!! LOL!!
Here is a close-up of the journaling card - you can also see some of the layering, and inky torn edges.  I used Twisted Citron, Picket Fence, Peacock Feathers, and Aged Mahogany Distress Stains and Blue Moon Powder Puff Chalk Ink too!


You have until February 4th to LINK up your entry!  I hope you will play along with us at The Challenge YOUself Blog!!

Happy Scrapping!!
