All About Me well I only had one sheet of paper, so it's a lot about me!

This was one of my Design Team Submissions at Club Ruby Designers (did I mention there is a free membership option?) . Everything except the Glossy Accents was included in the Club Ruby Designers' October kit. I started with the Halloween in Wonderland paper and the Viva Decor Hematite Glitter Liner. I put a dot of Glitter liner over every black square around the border, while I tried to decided what to do lol. Then I cut out the top of the keyhole and put a black and white picture of myself flipped backwards in a tribute to the looking glass. I'm taa-daaaing the "Welcome to CHA Super Show" sign last year, because let's face it, it's a wonderland for crafters. I used a cut out from the Botanicals Lite cartridge and skewed an circle into the appropriately sized oval for the title.

I used hearts for different categories of interests with spinners (from Tim Holtz) because I'm really interested in a lot of things and spinners could make choosing what to do a lot easier lol. I couldnt' get the title to "pop" enough for my taste so I used glossy accents to accentuate the cut out. The hearts were all cut from the Cake Basics cartridge and thanks to my Gypsy, I hid the inner contour to make the shadow with the diamond flocked paper and hid the outer cut to make the rusty hearts. I DID forget to add my favorite color though (it's RED) lol. I hand cut little banners and folded them  as titles for the different interests. Then I needed more room so I hand cut pieces of paper to fit in the border. I distressed the title layers and the rusty hearts with an open pair of scissors sort of like using a vegetable peeler.
