Some Skip Flavoured Papers


Yesterday I had a go at creating brushes out of some of the more ornate scanned/extracted buttons I did. Then today I treated myself to Shauna’s wonderful CU overlays. I was really happy with the result so I thought I would share them with you here. I used Pam’s Skip Palette . It is funny that ever since my daughter did the self inflicted hair cut how many other people have a similar story to share. At school, kindy, soccer, work – you name it – someone would laugh and say either their daughter had done it, or they had done it. One little girl at my son’s school who has the most beautiful auburn curls also tried to cut her hair straight. That nearly made me cry. But I think wanting our hair to be different to what it is, is just part of being a girl. I have gone from horrid poodle perm in my teens to torturing it straight as an adult.
So I hope you can use the papers. The one with the writing I had a go at a few weeks ago after I saw Pam’s beautiful layout of her kids from Easter. I used it to make a tag, can’t remember if I shared it then, so thought I would put it in now. I have grunged it up a bit more anyway.
For those with boys like the lovely Sharon Shutterbug – don’t worry the noisy woisy boy-zy is helping me do something today to finish a page using Pam’s fantastic grader stuff the other day.

Thank you LV Mommy for all your lovely comments, I do read everything people write and it means a lot to me when people take the time to stop and leave a message. Our poor dog never looks at the monitor, he sleeps under the desk on my feet, so he didn't see those pictures, but I am sure the cats, who sleep on the desk next to me, saw them and had a quiet chuckle LOL.
Best wishes,
Erika

when i first looked at the preview,i thought that the bottom left and top right papers had chocolate chip cookies on them. i was so excited! but then i read the post and realized they were buttons. and they're nice buttons. but now you have me thinking about choc chip cookies and wouldn't they be cute with skip and run? erika, do you think you could scan some cookies and make some papers and stuff? please please please - wait, i have to wipe the drool off my keyboard (and i just got it dry after looking at pam's icecream again!) please please please?

btw, i really love the paper with writing on it! tfs!

You made me laugh about the hair - I was the same! As a kid I had shirley temple style curls which I hated, then grew to live with them when all my friends were having perms and now I straighten it to death with the good old GHDs. What are we like - we're never pleased with what we have!! Great papers by the way! Hugs x
