Find your Wings

After playing on the web one day, I ran across this sketch at Sketchy Thursdays. Right away I knew the LO that I wanted to do with it. My oldest daughter recently graduated from beauty school.I used some pictures of Courntey with a few of her friends (notice the bright colored hair... I guess you can't get through beauty school without doing some fun, crazy things with your hair!) that graduated with her. I picked some paper that is soooo Courtney... pink and brown, roughed it up a bit, sprayed some coffee Glimmer Mist on it and threw in a few embellishments that remind me of her! I was so excited when I found the scissors on the Sentimentals cart... perfect for this LO!! The title "Find Your Wings" came from one of her favorite songs. I thought it was approriate since she is beginning the next stage of her life... now all she needs is to find a job!!The supplies used:
SEI Papers - Chocolat
DCWV Papers - Neutral Pack
DCWV Papers - Glitter Pack
Autumn Leaves Stamps - Talking in circles (girls)
Flourish Stamps - Sorry it was from my stash and no longer has a name on it!
Cricut Cartridges - Sentimentals, Stone Script, Plantin School book and Pagoda for the flowers (cut at 3 different sizes, inked, stickled and fastened with a brad)
Prima flowers
Heidi Snapp gems
Colorbox Fluid Chalk - Chestnut Roan and Dark Brown
Glimmer Mist - Coffee
Vellum for the wings of the butterfly

Thanks for taking the time to look at my LO!! As always, I love to hear all of your comments! Barb

Barb, this is fantastic .. love the scissors .. my dd is a haridresser as well and at one time sported some of the same hair! That has past but it would be great to do a LO about her profession. So, I'm inpsired!
