Selfies {Layout}

Ahhhh, I'm finally getting back into a routine!

The internet went down for most of the day yesterday, so I was able to get my room all cleaned and organized! Now its just a few little things (and lesson planning, but let's pretend that's all done!) and I'm ready to start the school year!

And even better - today I'm going to be ordering a ton of pictures from Shutterfly so I can really start scrapping again! I've got a few mini books in the works that I can't wait to share, and I am way way behind on Find Your Voice. So I'm definitely looking forward to that.

But before I do all that, I do have this layout to share with you.

So, I have mixed views about the photos I take when out and about. Part of me loves to take pictures of the sights that we are visiting. But another part loves to take pictures of us in front of them. To prove we were actually there or something. I'm not sure...but I usually end up with a nice mix of us (or usually, AJ) and the sights.

But when I was on my Goodbye Chicago tour, I went a little crazy taking selfies. But in my defense, I was by myself, and I wasn't handing my big girl camera to anyone I didn't know to take my picture! (I only recently started letting AJ use it...I don't like when people touch my things...I'm working on it...)

To be honest, I felt a little silly putting together a whole page of me. But then I realized, that whole day was about me. I was by myself doing whatever I wanted, so I decided to just scrap them anyway! And its my scrapbook anyway!

Do you take a ton of selfies? Do you scrap them?

I feel weird taking selfies. Of course, nowadays with the reverse camaera phones it's easier to SEE what you are taking one of. If it's a nice camera, I don't blame you. Once, on vacation, I had one of those underwater cameras. I was afraid my husband (ex now) would lose it, so I kept it. and what did I do...lose it. I was underwater going after a pretty fish and was getting close to someone standing there so turned around and next thing it came loose from my wrist and nowhere to be found. :-(

I love your layout because it is all about you :)
Great selfies by the way.
I don't take selfies as I can't get myself in the photo for some reason. Plus I just look odd, lol
You look great in yours :)

So glad things are coming together for school and you're falling into a routine :) I absolutely love this layout! I never take pics of myself and I really should. I'm hardly ever in my layouts. This is great Katie!!
