My curls....

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??

CCTV drain survey London are becoming more and more necessary as many mortgage lenders are requiring them prior to the approval of loans. It is also very good practice if you are looking to buy any property if you want to avoid any expensive repair bills for blocked or collapsed drains. Of course leaking drains can cause more than damage to just themselves, permanent damage could also be inflicted on the foundations of the house also.

I have found many codes that can delete the basic information module. All of them have worked but all of them have deleted my background.
