Focus 2

Now the turn of my scrapbook page.

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.

Paper: SU, background paper; Collage Press, Margot; Craft Creations, grey weave + scraps from my stash
Stamps: SU, Papillon Potpourri; Paula Pascal, journalling spots, Technique Tuesday, Life in Pictures by Ali Edwards; Kaisercraft, Botanical
Inks: Memento, London fog, bamboo leaves
Die: Clearly Besotted, Tag Along
Punch: SU, butterfly
Alphas: Websters Storytellers & Bella BLVD Sophisticates
Embellishments: twine & pearls from my stash

Thanks for looking and hope today is a good start to the Easter weekend for you.
