As I get older my hair just gets curlier and curlier - I am certain I will end my days as a fully blown poodle!! As a teenager I used to get my hair permed - now I wonder why the heck I needed to ??
SO I had fun with these old photos and this one is of me as a little girl and shows that I even had curls back then. I am seriously loving the colours in the Carta Bella Alphabet Junction papers and they were perfect for this photo!!
So for starters I used my favourite crafters workshop template - the spotty dotties and with my Tim HOltz distress ink Broken China
I established a bit of interest for my background. I then used a serious of smaller cut sections of Alphabet Junction papers - the blue under the photo is the backside of Dear Little dots . I have then cut a long strip of the pink spotted Handwriting - again using the B side. I also had a small strip of the green Alphacards which I slipped in under the blue paper.
In the top right hand corner under where the photo would sit I also used some of the reverse side Alphabet banner. I also pleated a strip of the striped Delightful stripe and adhered across the pink paper for additional burst of colour.
I am a HUGE lover of ricrac - its so versatile and easy to use....and Tracy has an awesome ramge - I have used some of the pretty pink ric rac but you could use any range of colours depending on the p colours in your photo!!
I then went to the coordinated sticker sheet and selected a range of stickers to add to my layout - I always love a journal spot or two and I also liked some of the coordinating strips so I have added a couple once I had adhered my photo.I also slipped in a pretty small doily under the top left side of the photos and cut it and used the remainder at the bottom right - I find it just added a bit of softness and prettiness!!
Tracy also has some wicked buttons and some gorgeous resin flowers so I had to add a couple of those!!
As a last minute touch I couldnt resist Tracys gorgeous fairy girl charms
Finally I have used the alphabet sticker sheet for my title using two different fonts.
I also like to outline some of my papers when they have a white background just so they stand out a little more....I love the little touches like this to finish a layout
What do you think??
