Sometimes ...

If you're a scrapper or card maker and doing something 'just because', which usually comes first with you? The papers? The images? The wording? Or something else?

Wednesday evening I was sorting out some of my photos and saw one of me! Yes, it was scary, but all of a sudden a word popped into my head followed by a sentence which became the title and first line of the journalling for the LO I then did.

Sometimes ... You've just have to step into the beauty parlour of Jo-Jo's and let her do her stuff.

My friend Jo-Jo always wanted to be a beautician, but for one reason and another never persued her dream, so I'm her very willing volunteer. Well, who'd say no to freebie pampering? We haven't done that in ages which is a shame as we have such a laugh at the same time. This is one of the photos she took after one of those sessions last year. By the end of it, we couldnt stop laughing especially as her son got in on the act in front of the camera.

So, here's the LO and another for the 'book of me'.

I used white Bazzill for the base and the patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye Bohemian paper pack. Hand doodling on the left, Green Tara blooms and a Third Coast stamp mounted on foam pads completes the simple LO. Lettering is done using Ellison's Chunkidelic alphabet. The doodling took the longest as it's easy to over-doodle which I hope I've managed to avoid.

Thank you for looking.

Love and hugs to you all
