Time for LOAD again! (Already?)

Yes indeedy it is May & time for LOAD again in fact it's already the third day!  So I have 3 4 layouts to show you!  Besides the prompts, I have been having some fun using challenge blogs too so here goes:

Day 1:  Tough Topic Tuesday:  Self Portrait

Well it must not've been that tough, because I made 2 layouts!  I finally did some pregnancy pictures.  I didn't have very many & I couldn't find that 9th month baby bump picture that I was sure I had but I still like it.

After I had uploaded this page, I got an email with the monthly newsletter from the athletic club we belong to, and they featured me,  So I did another layout:

Day 2 "Wicked Wednesday"  Make A Layout without a photo

I've had this drawing in my scrap room since my DS made it in 2007 so I just had to use it!  i just love seeing myself through his eyes!

Day 3 "Who'd have Thunk It Thursday"  Use Holiday colors on a non-holiday page.
It just so happens I had the perfect story for this one!  (Although it took me a few hours to figure out what I was going to do!). 

And on this layout I took the C.R.A.F.T. Challenge to use buttons. 
And the DYSU Challenge to use circles If polka dots don't count I'm sure buttons do right?

 I just love how it turned out!

As always I am using LOAD as an opportunity to shop my stash & clear out by using up some old stuff!  Can you believe I've had these fabulous papers & buttons & embellies for all of these pages for several years?  Well I have.  Can't wait to see what Lain comes up with for tomorrow's prompt!
