“My One and Only Daughter”
While I have two sons, I have only one daughter. And what a joy she has been to me! From the day she was born, she has been a wonderful daughter (except for about a year or so as a teenager, heheee). Even today, as a grown woman, she is still a wonderful daughter. AND she is also the mother of Sarah!!
When I started working on this layout, she saw the pictures and said “Mom, you need to throw those away!” I told her No way, I love these pictures! She replied “But look at that BIG hair!!”. I told her … not to worry … it was 1991!!!! (I don’t know where the last 15 years have gone!)
So, here she is… My daughter at 17.
This is for the scraps challenge. I used one sheet of “Around the Block” cardstock (Fluer Brune – blue side) I cut out the paper behind the pictures, so I could use them as flower punches. (you know... use the scraps right up!!)
Also, I had oodles of doodles (Basic Grey) leftovers and some I didn’t know if I would ever use. So I snipped and cut and separated until I filled them all around the pictures. For instance: I took the word FAMILY(Basic Grey rub-on) and cut the M and the Y out for the word MY. I kept all the swirls and added a few more. I added and added the rub-ons until I thought I had enough. I used the white and black rub-ons. Then I filled in even more with my white Gelly Roll pen and my black Sarasa pen. The 1991 was originally white stick on letters, but I colored them with Zig Color Brush (Cool Beans).
I also doodled on the Heidi Swapp letters with the white Gelly Roll pen, as well as the metal tag with 17 on it.
