Create, Play Laugh, Love, Dream Layout

Here is a layout of my daughter and my sister in 1998. We were visiting my sister Mindy  in Seattle and Tysa was playing dress-up. Aunt Mindy is pretending to be her hand maid and fanning the Red Queen. Tysa spent a great deal of her childhood playing dress up, probably about 80% of her childhood was spent as one character or another - almost always a beautiful princess or queen. I think this explains her love of "the process" of getting ready for school dances - which is also playing dress up. I will be sharing a layout of this kind of dress up - hopefully next week.

I apologize for the picture quality, just could not get a good one today. The paper is a Prima Paintable - I love , love these papers, so much fun!! I used Twinkling H2O's for the lettering,, except PLAY with is gold Stickles. the roses are Tattered Angels Candy Apple Red and the Red Mahogany Distress Reinker, water and Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls. The Love is cut form the Lost and Found collection by My Minds Eye. 
I clipped through the Prima Paper so the picture would set behind the flower and leaves, it just did not look right sitting on top of the flowers.  I still feel this layout needs something, I am not super happy with it, but not sure what else to do so I will leave it. 

Thanks for far I have been keeping  up with my one layout a week, we will see if it
