missy and DREAM

Roxannee says, KAYA!


Distressing is one of my favourite techniques. Almost every layout or card I make has some paper teared, inked or sanded. To be honest, I was way out of my comfort zone whilst making this project- I used pink (because the dress was pink), I tried vintage style, I had to make a poem about my feelings with wearing a dress and the hardest bit- scrapped my baby photo! Thanks Marj for this challenge, I had fun.

Journaling :
She didn't SMILE 'coz she hates the dress... They gave her a balloon 'coz she's in distress... Little MISSY you just turned 2, Will you be a girly GIRL we don't have a clue...

-rox 5th December 1978

After the guests have left for Easter lunch, we ran to the local park and chilled out. Ashton's just 14 months old and was playing in the sand pit. He liked the feel of the sand in his hand.

About ME:

Hi, I'm Roxannee, Little Miss Sunget 1978...until now I don't like wearing dresses and skirts. And those Sunday dresses- I think they were made to cause some itchiness!

Pink for a well-dressed Missy! and I love the journaling tag that went well with the photo. Love the poem, too!
I simply adore the 2nd LO. You proved these techniques work so well with not just vintage pictures. TFS
