Well - today is my birthday and every year for some time now I have asked my children to send me a selfie on or around the 3rd and I make a scrapbook LO.  It has become a fun tradition. The eclectic LO challenge was perfect  for this as I made a grid and devoted a box to each of my children (I have 7) and customized the box with elements and such in keeping with the challenge.  I chose colors from one of my favorite family quilts - one made by a family friend and given to us on a family vacation years ago.  

 

Journaling reads:  September 3, 2017. My 57th birthday. Everyone sent selfie’s for the annual page. We are now flung out across the country and often out exploring far away destinations. Growing stronger and better every year; we persist. As Ngiste says, “Doing all the good we can, by all the means we can, in all the places we can, at all the times we can, to all the people we can. As long as ever we can.”  

I have used > 5 patterned papers.  My elements include:

Frames, glitter, stamps, ephemera (frog, fishing pole, airplane, poet cherub), tape, scatters, stitching, foliage, flowers, ribbon, tags/mats, hearts, string, stones/gems.

I love how you made a different emphasis on each family member with a special frame and how you kept the color scheme simple.  Great job!

Congratulations on your win!  This is a super clever LO with all the Selfies (gorgeous children btw).  I adore  your color scheme and it works wonderfully with the b/w photos.
