Keepin' It Real Challenge - My Scrapbook Nook



This was for a challenge that had to include a NEW self-potrait .
One that we had to take ourselves.
I thought I would definitely be ok with the taking it myself bit
& was pleasantly surprised that I had a coupla of usable pics
that I simply snapped at myself in various rooms of my home
& finally standing in my patio.
LOL.
I'm just happy they are my look for today -
having had my hair done just this Monday with fresh hair colors .
I was also just thrilled to have blue/green eyes from using my fave picnik.com
without having to resort to colored contacts !



My hidden journaling reads :

Just for Today. I'd rather be taking self portraits , than dusting.

I'd rather be playing at picnik.com.com than dealing with organized grime aka the laundry.

I'd rather be at my scrap table than have a spotless home.

( oops, a domestic engineer I am not! )

Just Keeping It Real.

Today!
