Good morning and happy Thursday.  Today's layout is dedicated to the self-taken photo or "selfie", where the photographer actually gets to be in the picture.  The die-cut cameras and film strips were cut on the Cameo Silhouette and the View Master reels were cut out  with a Tim Holtz Sizzix die.

Most "selfies" are of one or two people, taken at arms length with a cell phone and passed around on social media.  Here's a way to print them out and share them in a scrap book.

Here is some "selfie" trivia, courtesy of my DH.  The first known "selfie" was taken in 1839 in the early days of photography.  In those days it took a long time to take a photo so this fellow was able to uncover the lens, wait for the glass plate to be exposed and then cover the lens.

And this "triple-selfie" by Norman Rockwell from 1960 was done with paint.

Thanks for visiting my blog today and  I hope that you are inspired to make some of yoou own!.  Have a wonderful and blessed day.
