Photo of me at about age 3. Looking kinda sassy, too!! LOL! I used G45 papers for this layout...and for the punched blooms. The little girl is a Magnolia Stamp that I colored with my Copic markers (love those markers!). I cut out the little dresses from one of the pieces of paper and hung them on a "clothes line" that I made with floss. The flowers are all punched with the EK Success retro flower punch. The title letters are Maya Road plain chipboard letters that I painted red and then covered with glossy accents. Then because they were a little too bright, I rubbed them down with brown ink. I added some Prima bling. Used the Fiskars Apron punch for the "board" to sit the little girl on. Inked the edges of the layout with dark brown ink. Just got me a new pair of scallop scissors, so I had to try them out on the top and bottom of the dark ppr...Love 'em! Journaling is tucked under the newsprint mat on the bottom and reads:
I remember posing for this photo. I believe I was about 3 years old. I was definitely posing for the camera, and probably giving a little attitude, since I have my hands on my hips. I remember that as a small child, I always wore little crop tops and shorts during the summer. I thought I was so cute with my tummy showing! I know it was spring or summer, because I'm barefooted, and we weren't allowed to go barefooted until after the first of May. Something about ground-itch? I didn't know what ground-itch was then and still don't know what it is! I still love to go barefooted though, in fact, the first thing I do when I walk in the door is take off my shoes.
Thanks so much for stoppin by! :D
