We went to this event called Glow in St. Louis Tuesday night at the Missouri Botanical Gardens and it was fantastic.    I had seen pictures of it from other years so I was excited to be going.     Of course I was also thinking about the great scrapbook pages I could make from the pictures I took.   I knew I wanted to get a Picture of myself to use for the Challenge at "CHALLENGE YOURSELF" so this is the picture I decided to use for the challenge and then I wanted to use for the challenge.   The sketch challenge at  "SCRAP OUR STASH" was perfect for it.   I gave me a chance to make a photo into a circle and scrap it that way.

"CHALLENGE YOURSELF"   I did the journaling in my own handwriting 

"SCRAP OUR STASH"   I did faux stitching around the two black word circles.


  1. WOW. Barbara! I love the photo of YOU! You are absolutely glowing! And your layout is beautiful. The colors, the photo, your design, your handwriting . . . everything looks amazing. Thank you for joining us at Challenge YOUrself this month!

  2. Such a Stunning layout, Barbara! I love your colour choice - the black really helps bring your eye to your photograph as your focal point.
