Layout: All about Me

Hello Friends!
I have been trying to grow as a scrapbooker, stamper, and overall crafter. I have been checking out pinterest and researching new products and trends. One of those trends is the 8 1/2 x 11 layout. Another, is what I have named the clustering or free form style. So I decided I wanted to challenge myself.
Not only challenge myself once but in 3 ways:
1. Scrap an 8 1/2 x 11" page
2. Use the clustering style
3. Start a scrapbook strictly about me.
I am almost always behind the camera and telling others' stories. I want to leave something to my children so they can learn more about me as a person. Also, by pushing myself with my scrapping style I am learning more about myself too!
So with all that said here is my multi-challenge attempt: the cover page to my scrapbook "It's All About Me."
I used kraft cardstock for the base and used the Dream Pop paper pack (the CTMH May Constant Campaign) for the additional papers. You can see in the above and below pictures the grey chevron paper. That one of the cardstocks from Dream Pop, it is a clear embossed (or tone-on-tone) chevron pattern. All the cardstocks are amazing! Also above in this photo I used the polka dot fabric from the For Always Textiles pack. I wrapped it around a piece of cardstock and secured all edges using liquid glass.
I wanted to try a compilation of fonts, stickers and stamps to create my title. I added a frame cut from the Art Philosophy Cartridge and embellished with butterflies and black crystal also from CTMH.
There you have it! I hope you like the end result as much as I do.
