Wild About You

Well this one came out totally different from what I started. I started using A Beautiful Thing. I love that set, but it isn't getting quite enough love (aside from the sentiment) so I've been trying to make myself use it more. So I started with the flowers, even had them cut out then decided the colors I was using just looked funny with such pretty flowers, so I went with this instead. The way I did the DSP actually started off unintentional. The DSP was a little bigger than I wanted so I cut 1/8 of an inch. I put it down next to the other piece and realized I like it, so I did it on the other side too. -Stamps-Wild About You and It's Your Birthday
-Paper-Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip, Blue Bayou, Kraft and Whisper White; Fall Flowers DSP
-Ink-Blue Bayou and Soft Sky
-Accessories-Old Olive marker, Chocolate Chip wide grosgrain.

BTW, I cut my hair this weekend! Yes...I CUT IT! I've gotten way to many bad hair cuts over the years (and I mean BAD), so I decided to do it myself. I've actually been cutting it for the last year or two, but up till this point I've been to scared to do anything but a regular cut. I found a couple of video tutorials on YouTube for giving yourself layers. I used THIS one and THIS one. I can't believe this worked! All you have to do is put your hair in a ponytail at the top of your head, hold the ponytail up in the air and cut straight. The second link shows basically the same thing, only she just put up the top part of her hair, so I used that to put in more layers. I actually put in 3 layers, but I can't seem to find the other two, lol. I tried to curl the ends so they layers would show better, but my hair doesn't like curls =).
