Just a little something girly---well, cuz there's a boatload more boy pages coming up. 

Anyway, we all have those days when our hair just will not lie down and do what we wish, right?  However most of us do not get to look this cute when it happens! 

I only took one photo of the two pages together... mostly because as you can see, the sun was kind of coming through the trees and while it's pretty-- it doesn't make for good photos for blogging. 

The papers are from Basic Grey, the Luscious collection.  And again, this was an exercise in stretching paper.  I had one full sheet of the green small print (used in the background) and one full sheet of the distressed solid green (also in the background), the rest of the papers were only partial sheets.  I used the white filler paper from a couple of page refills as a base to glue all the pieces on, then split the green papers across them.  After that it was a matter of piecing the remaining papers in, punching a border and adding embellishments, title and journaling.

The title was a bit much all in hot pink, but using the green wouldn't work against the green background, so I took a another cue from Miss Izzie's clothes and used a soft gray alpha set to break up all that pink a little.   Journaling is down the left side, flowers are from Prima, the accordion folded pieces are layered stickers from Basic Grey.  I think the border stickers are off a Crate Paper sticker sheet. 

OK, stretch those papers and make them work for you.  Oh, yeah and enjoy your next "bad hair day"!
