Year 30

So this is new for me, as I've actually scrapped a picture of myself! As I turned 30 in June, I thought it would be nice to do a layout of what I've achieved this year, something I can look back on with a smile.

I used the remains of my August Kit from creative craft world
with some added extras that I've stashed over the years (i.e. Dragonfly brad!).  I tried to include some little bits in there which would represent something to me.

My picture was taken yesterday on my iPad, I've gone back to my near-ish original colour using a product called "Colour B4", its actually made me a little ginger but it has removed 2 years worth of red hair dye.  Other than mascara and lip gloss no other make up... OK I then ran it through an app called "Camera Dream" which gives everything a soft glow to it, very good for removing imperfections (what I'm 30! I'm allowed a little photoshopping lol). 

5 things I have achieved (and will achieve) this year!

This cupcake brad is to symbolize my 30th Birthday party, as I had a cupcake party! 
Over 40+ cupcakes were made (and eaten) lol

A dragonfly, pink crown, oh and some flutterbyes :)

Pretty green sparkly title (need to buy more of this lettering!), also some words for inspiration!

Terrific layout! I love that you scrapped about yourself. We don't do that nearly enough... The special meaning behind the embellishments, and listing the milestones add to the beauty of this wonderful page! Thanks so much for joining us at ABAC!

Great layout! Love that you've included the little list of things you've done in your 30th year (you look way younger than that too!). Love the texture especially that little cupcake brad and the pinwheel. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful memory of your special birthday with us at ABAC and I do hope you'll join us again soon.
