Loving this month's VERY sweet mood board:
So I've done a LO of a VERY sweet step-GD, Charlie.
Marking the Saga of the Knotted [dreadlock/bird's nest] hair...
which, when we were up on holidays needed to be cut off.....
by MOI, say she was under impressed would be
to put it mildly. BUT....she sent me these GORGEOUS photos....
luckily it's still long enough to get into a bun & up style.
That's the story. Here's the photos:
I really wanted to reflect the pretty, light, flowery feel of these photos.
So, I've used some flower & scroll chippies.

Some closies:
 Painted the chippies up with some Dusty Attic pink paint:

Thanks for looking ~
So looking forward to seeing what
you do with this mood board!
Happy Scrapping ~
