I loved Melody's page, a DT member at Color Throwdown, so much I knew immediately I wanted to make a page and use a black and white photo for this week's challenge. So I looked through my old photos and found this one of me at primary school way back when ....
I had such fun stamping and using pinks and adding butterflies, pearls and twisty twine for this nostalgic feminine page. I was really pleased with how it turned out. Hope you like it too.
What do you think of the hairdo? My mum used to cut it herself, using a pudding basin by the look of it, and usually not particularly straight. But it is just so typical of that era and I seem to remember multiple plastic hair slides too.
