Feeling Groovy!

Finding a line that works perfectly with teenagers can be difficult, but when I opened up my product box from Little Yellow Bicycle and my daughter got all excited I KNEW I had a winning product line. She finds these funky colors and designs perfect for her personality.

So when I took these photos of her dawing a St. Patrick's Day wig, I knew what papers I had to use. It amazes me (and freaks her Dad out to no end) to see that even in these photos she's gorgeous! Lucky girl. We found out at the dentist yesterday that she needs an orthodontist appointment. I'm excited for her. Not about the braces part, but knowing that she will have beautiful straight teeth when she's done. How fun is that?!! I know nothing about braces because neither me nor my husband have ever worn them. This is going to be interesting. I see many photo ops ahead. LOL!

In honor of her grooviness, I used the "Free Spirit" line on this funky page about Kate:


Supplies:
* Cardstock: Die Cuts with a View, Prism
* Pattern paper: Blue Geo/Green Peace Dots Free Spirit Collection Paper, Peace Out/Orange Geo Free Spirit Collection Paper (Little Yellow Bicycle)
* Free Spirit Fresh Verse Cardstock Stickers (Little Yellow Bicycle)
* Free Spirit Clear Cut Shapes (Little Yellow Bicycle)
* Free Spirit Journal Tablet (Little Yellow Bicycle)
* Free Spirit Chipboard Frames (Little Yellow Bicycle)
* Free Spirit Chipboard Embellishment Stickers (Little Yellow Bicycle)
* Free Spirit Words Canvas Stickers (Little Yellow Bicycle)
* Yellow mini brads (Karen Foster Design)
* Flowers (Making Memories, craft supply)
* Bookplate (JoAnn's)
* "Capture the Moment" digital brush by Ali Edwards from her Everyday Brush set for www.designerdigitals.com

I am hoping that this weekend proves to be somewhat relaxing after my day yesterday was out of control with work, volunteering at the school, prepping for church activity, soccer game, church activity, and then home to finish taxes (yes, we left it to the last minute and we file in two states so YIKES). I really need April and especially May to settle down a bit. Good grief!

  1. She IS gorgeous, your daughter. And she probably has no idea.
    As for the braces, we're in the same boat, but we might be a bit behind. Neither my husband nor I wore braces, and it's a sure bet our daughter will. She's 9 now, but plans are in the works. Should be interesting. A sore tummy, I can empathize. Sore mouth after braces are tightened -- haven't a clue! I guess we'll learn as we go!
