Now onto the challenge….
August "Selfie" Stash Challenge:
"self·ie - a photograph that one takes of oneself with a digital camera or afront-facing smartphone, tablet, or webcam, especially for posting ona social-networking or photo-sharing website: selfies posted by teens onTwitter."
Create a layout using a selfie photo.  The photo(s) doesn't have to be "your" selfie… it can be anyone's selfie… as along as it's a selfie. :)  AND for the stash item, you must use a premade/packaged frame(s).

And now we are excited to introduce to you our  
August Guest Designer
Jenessa Franco
Hi!  My name is Jenessa, and I live in Dallas, Texas with my husband Noé, our son Santiago and our daughter Paolina. I first discovered scrapbooking in 1995, and I made my first album using construction paper and rubber absolute archival disaster! Fast forward to the present, and I've become quite passionate about this constantly evolving art form.Having always endeavored in arts & crafts such as drawing, painting and cross-stitching, scrapbooking has been such a natural progression for me.  My husband has been incredibly supportive of my obsession hobby by allowing me to utilize half of our family room as my own personal crafting area as well as hanging out with our kids when I need some creative therapy.

 Here is Jenessa's fabulous take on the challenge:

Here's what Jenessa said about her layout:
I was glad for this challenge. I don't have that many selfies, and I have even less pages about me. So for this layout I used a photo I took of myself this past St. Patrick's Day. I was also glad to be challenged to use a frame, as I have a plethora of them in my stash that I rarely use. I cut the frame in half, and tucked each piece behind the layers so that it gave the illusion of being longer than it actually is.
Thank you Jenessa for providing this lovely inspiration and agreeing to be our August Guest Designer!
