Monday Mania - This Is Me

Hello! I hope your weekend was great! This is the last week of school here before Summer vacation, so I know it's going to be a crazy week with lots of end of the year activities.....Today's Monday Mania challenge at Club Anya comes from Shaela and is a "This is Me" challenge. Here is Shaela's description,"Create a project that portrays who you are. You can make a scrapbook layout, card, altered item, gift set... any kind of paper project. It can be done in your favorite colors, using your favorite CA&F image, a project that displays a cherished past-time... whatever describes you!! Please include a brief explanation in your details when you upload it to the gallery."

First I made Rockstar Anya (my favorite Anya) into a self portrait of me by giving her a rounder body and glasses and dressing her like me. Then I used my favorite colors – dark red, orange and brown. There is sewing because that is another hobby that I spend a lot of time doing. And finally, the skulls and “Keep Rockin’” are because in my head I am still 17!!

The Details:
Stamps: Rockstar Anya, Anya Says - The Greeting Farm
Paper: My Minds Eye (Orange and Skull Strip), Dark Chocolate, White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Clothes: C0,C1,C5,C7,C9,R29,R39,R89
Misc: Brown Felt (Paper Trey Ink), Sewing Machine

I hope you will join us at CA&F and create a project about yourself!
