Shhhh.....secret.......

I read the Challenge Me Happy post for the month & couldn't think of anything; then in the middle of the night 2 days ago sudden inspiration hit me.  The theme was Book Of Me - Fun/Funny. I thought about a funny, little known fact about me & I knew the photo I needed that I had even printed the day before.  Confession time.....I am a closet Goth, hehe. I am not into the whole skulls, bats, being depressed, etc; but I love Goth fashion, makeup etc.  I love the heavy eye makeup, black nail polish, little tutu skirts, huge shoes, over the knee socks........you get the point.  I do believe that you have to go all out or not at all & therefore I do not dress-up often (don't think I could pull it off full time like Abby from NCIS)  So here is my Goth LO. 

The papers are DCWV.  The metal is the inside of a coke can  wither through my Dymo (journalling) or Cuttlebug (wings & crown).  The stamp is Sweat Pea (I think, I bought it at SENZ).  The metal frame is Making Memories, then embossed & inked.  The fabric is from my fav skirt that I made years ago, but can't bare to throw away even though it no longer fits. I must mention those are not my shoes (although I am trying to find them to buy them), they are my friends. Also I had to get my lovely husband to take the photos for me as my point & shoot couldn't cope with the reflections off the metal at night.

Gorgeous layout! :) Love how you incorporated fabric with a sentimental quality to it, to personalise the layout that much more and the use of metal is awesome.

Have you seen the Tattered Time range by Diecuts With A View? It's a bit gothic and a bit steampunk.

Oh and yay another closet goth! I'm in a similar kind of headspace as you methinks... Having long outgrown the depression and hanging out at graveyards, yet still love the style (though, have def toned down the OTT outfits these days!)
