Born to Create- DT project

Wow!! Monday already?..LOL
As many of you know, I don't usually scrap about myself.  But when I rummaged through my Prima papers that Kristina had sent, I found the North Country 6x6 stack and decided to pick my brain a little and I wanted to think outside of the box.. Yes, they are winter papers, but I decided to make a layout that wasn't so "winter" themed, just to show you how versatile some of these stacks really are..
I printed a photo of myself and since I love the color of Olive Green, it made putting together this bad boy super fun and easy..
This layout measures 12x12, but cutting up some of the smaller papers didn't leave me with many scraps to throw away..

So, Here is my layout:

and for a few close ups:
Lots of colors... 
which is so out of my comfort zone  LOL

Me with dark hair..LOL I prefer blonde

The corners I stamped a corner flourish using the North Country Stamp set.. I didn't use an ink pad, but brown paint from Rangers paint dabbers instead.. adding drops of white liquid pearl for accent..

the flowers are mostly all Prima's with a few exceptions that I found in my stash.. I don't normally add so many different colors, but with this layout I just couldn't help myself..LOL

and for the supplies used:

Other supplies used:
Martha Stewart around the page punch and butterfly punch, white liquid pearls, bakers twine and computer generated journaling..
All right then fellow scrappers.. That's my Monday post for this week.. I want to thank you all so much for stopping by today and checking out my layout.. do stop by Your Memories Here and check out the awesome selection of Prima goodies Kristina has to offer..
Hope everyone has a scrap-tastic week
