#Selfie layout

I wanted to capture my daughter's (and most of the population of the world's) obsession with selfies.  So, I got on all of her social media sites and pulled off a ton of selfies she has taken of just herself and her with her friends.  There are 29 on this layout and I think they are all from a span of 3 months.

I also wanted to capture the hashtag (#) popularity hence the title #SELFIE.  I had a flare that said "But first, Let me take a selfie" and then one that says "Oh snap" and a flare with a camera and the word "click" in the lens.  Those all went very well with the theme.  I used a camera motif background & put all the photos in film strips that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  I also used the Silhouette software to size my photos to fit the holes in the film strips, added my title in black foam letters, typed journalling and a few homemade enamel dots.  Finally, I added a cartoon image of older ladies taking a selfie and told my daughter that was her and her friends years from now.
