Pink Lady

Sometimes I join a site and then forget all about it until I see it posted on someone else's blog! That's exactly how this layout came about. I was checking out my blog friend Denise's blog here and not only realized that she is on the Design Team there (Yay, Denise!!) but she posted the weekly sketch at Pages In Time. I love circles so decided to have a go at the sketch. I had pulled these photos when I pulled the ones I used on the Rock Star layout. Both photos are basically the same theme (funny colored hair from a Libby Lou birthday party) just different ages. She was 7 in these photos and 5 in the others! I figured since I had the photos pulled out, I should use I really trying hard to keep scrapping some older photos too. I had at least 5 different colored backgrounds for this layout....white, turquoise glitter, kraft, pale yellow and then finally decided on black. Its really quite rare that I use black as a background although I don't know why, because it really made the colors in the papers and flowers pop. I did this layout a few hours ago but have been patiently waiting for the tons of distress Stickles to dry. I couldn't wait any longer so I took the photo while the Stickles is still not fully dry....its dry to the touch but if you press it will ooze!! I have ZERO patience!
