Whimsical

The meaning of whimsical is described as impulsive and playful. That is this week's scrap challenge over at Scrap & Stamp. These pictures of my two year old niece are certainly playful! She loves to dip her head back.......all the way when she swings! So of course I had to get behind her to capture that! Don't ya just love that fine blond hair blowing all over? : ) I used an old piece of My Mind's Eye for the background paper, some vintage book paper, Making Memories journaling spots, and a few misc. pieces I had laying around. I have all these Popsicle sticks from the the rub on packages and decided to recycle them here. I broke them in half and used them for the stems of my flowers. (I think that might count as whimsical.....right?) Her name was done in stickers that I've probably had for 12 years. So let's call them "retro" stickers! : )


Hop on over to the Scrap & Stamp blog to get a look at the prize being offered this week! Make your own whimsical LO, and that prize could be yours!
JUST A REMINDER!
My CARD'S CLASS starts this Monday! If you would like to purchase the class, head on over to the side bar. It will take place over at Noel Mignon.com. We are going to have so much fun, I hope you can join us!
Well, off to paint.......again. Still trying to finish the upstairs hallway. Once we finish that, then my scrap room is next! YEA!
