Mini Challenge #6

During the Fresh Face Designer Contest there's, beside the main challenge, a weekly mini challenge. Most of the times it's something not to time consuming like a puzzle, a search or even the challenge to make a card. Boy, was I amazed when I read this weeks mini challenge: Make your own Glossy! As a model you need a sort of portfolio where agencies that see your photos and read general information about you, like your weight, height, sizes and other important information for models. Talk about a mini challenge! (Thanks Tara! :)) Anyways, I had no idea what to do and the idea of that portfolio folder kept popping up in my head the whole time. So I decided to a actually make a portfolio folder. Not as plain as the models have (after all I am a scrapper, not a model) but someting altered and more attractive. So I made this cover of chipboard and adhered a magnetic closure before covering it with patterned paper. I wanted to keep the private information (who needs to know that I am 6ft1" and have 9.5 shoesize?) a bit private so I made a little set of envelopes connected and put pieces of cardstock in there with all the information. Beside a close up photo of your face it was also recommended to use a 'full body' photo! Geeeh, first major challenge in this mini challenge, but I did find one. Last August my cousin and I posed together because everybody kept saying we look like twins. So I cropped her off the photo (Sorry, Pascal!) and used that one. That is actually an okay photo. I shows my style of clothing and I wear heels!
