Sleep in a Pineapple {Paper Issues Scraplift Sunday}

I'm up on the Paper Issues blog today. Here's my post:

Happy Friday the 13th! An unusual day for Scraplift Sunday, but heck, SLS is fun any day of the week!

And to my surprise, I was given the assignment to scraplift myself! This was a little bit of a challenge because I'm not a very "out of the box" scrapper, and I was all set to copy my layout using a different set of photos, but I decided to challenge myself to not be so literal. Instead of the alphas, I used a cut file. The basic composition is the same except I flipped it.

So, I had this selfie of me with my hair in a pineapple, and I decided I'd document all my hair routines I've recently learned for taking care of my curls, and I decided I needed a pineapple cut file, and Paper Issues actually has two! I used the National Scrapbook Day 2017 Free Cut File.

I used the pineapple, flower corner, and leaves from this cut file set and backed them with a Pink Paislee paper by Paige Evans.  A flamingo sticker from last summer's Simple Stories summer collection was a perfect tropical accent to go with the pineapple.

A few enamel dots and an epoxy sticker from Elle's Studio. My journaling tucked behind the frame tells the details of my quirky hair routine.

Whether you're a "literal scrapper" like me or a more out of the box scrapper, I can't wait to see how you lift my layout! Be sure to share it at the Paper Issues Friends & Fans page for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Paper Issues store!
