Three Little Girls

Wow...another month has flown by and its time again for the return of the next Design Team assignment...... i was selected to create my project by using the Sassafras Lass line. i combined lots of the "Life is Beautiful" collection, using the Anthem, Vintage Yummy, and Woodland Whimsy. i tried to make it look a bit like a page right out of a children's story book. The collection set the perfect tone for the layout. i selected an old photo of myself pictured with 2 of my cousins. i can remember all the good times we shared together growing up....lots of great memories brought back to life....i am hooked on buttons and stick pins.....maybe just a phase i am going through.....ha ha ha......i love clutter, so that was an easy task to accomplish - lots of cluster embellishments. i also used the scalloped edge paper and even added my very own "reverse" scallop using half of a circle punch (on the left side of the photograph)...i went out on a limb and even attempted to make a journalling entry....ha ha ha.....i chose to transform the "tickets" into the hair roller pin girls dresses complete with a beaded tu-tu....i added lots and lots of gawdiness in the flower designs and the use of the prima flowers and the buzz and bloom crackle painted cardstock.... i LOVE bees and i was happy to get to include them on this layout,amongst all the other frillies.......adding the finishing touch of the bird's beaded flying path.......my design was accented by the distress technique using the versamagic chalk ink in the colors of jumbo java and wheat....all thrown together on the bazzil dotted swiss cardstock...... this was my favorite project thus far.....i love the look of old childhood memories brought to life through storybook paper....


  1. Love it! Such fun paper and sooooo many things to look at. As usual, I can't wait to see it in person. See you tomorrow night!
