This is a photo of me when I was about 3 years old. I used Scribble Scrabble Naomi's Collection for this layout. The edges of the background piece were punched with a MS around the edge (deep edge) punch. I cut one mat from the yellow and rounded the corners, then added a bit of faux stitching. The pink swirly mat was punched with a MS around the edge punch and backed with a piece of green card stock. The photo was also matted with the green card stock. The flowers were made using punches, inking and doodling and a piece of pink bling was added to the centers. I punched quite a few butterflies with a MS punch that has 3 butterflies on it...so there are some tiny butterflies. I also added a chipboard leaf behind the flowers and a button shoe. The chipboard swirls on the pink gingham paper were painted with pink and then I added a touch of glitter to them. Title letters are BG. I also added liquid pearls to each of the flowers in the outside border, except for the large flowers...and I added pearl centers to those flowers. Each butterfly has a bling body or s touch of liquid pearls. Journaling is tucked behind the swirly mat and the top swirl is the pull for the journaling. Journaling reads:
Looking at this photo today, makes me realize how quickly life passes. I must have been about 3 years old in this photo. The dress I'm wearing looks like one of the dresses my mama made for me from flour sacks. The little girl you see in this photo was quiet and shy. She had two big brothers that she would follow anywhere. This little girl believed in Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, and that all people were good. She lived in the country, and loved playing outside with her brothers. She went barefooted all summer and loved to splash and play in the mud puddles after it rained. This little girl thoroughly enjoyed her childhood. Times were simpler then… less busy and less stressful. People who know me now would never believe that I was a quiet and shy little girl…but I remember when….
