I took the photo myself. I cropped the photo myself. I matched the color of the title to the color of my shirt... by myself. (EEEE!) I did the whole layout by myself... not even a tutorial. LOL. And that makes me feel proud and happy... sorry if that sounds silly.
I honestly didn't think I'd ever do a digi layout. And today, I didn't set out to do one... it just sort of... happened.
I was walking the dogs and blog-writing in my head (that's what I do when I'm alone with no music or Friends DVDs). I had this "girly tomboy" idea.
That led me to think of my outfit today (the one in the pic). And that led me to take a photo of myself (with the pre-conceived idea on how I'd crop it)... putting my camera on self-timer and propping it up on a chair.
And then the layout just appeared in my head. It didn't occur to me - that I was doing a digi layout - until I was almost finished. Very strange. LOL.
I had thought all along that I'd just print it out on paper, and so to my brain... it would be on white cardstock, so it wouldn't be digi. LOL. I'm silly.
Sorry if I bored you with my thought process, but it really just fascinates me... how this whole thing came about. And really... I think it all goes back to Becky (SamsMom). She's the one who got me LOVING white space. LOVING white backgrounds. And when this layout idea came into my head, I thought of her and went immediately to her gallery for inspiration... to no avail.
I almost cried when I found it not there. She has deleted every.last.layout. *sigh* Seriously, I almost cried. I teared up. She has so inspired me.
And Becky... wherever you are in cyberspace (or Minnesota...), know that you inspired me to do my very first digi layout. And this, my friend, is dedicated to you. :)
