Scrapbook Tuesday - Grown Up Haircut

Hello Peeps

Gosh I don't know about where you live but we have had a "shower" for the last two days!!  Which means that my windows cannot be painted, nor can the borders be weeded so......crafting time!!  Once the dreaded H word had been done!

So as it is Tuesday (well, near enuff) I thought I would share this week's layout with you......

Yes!  It is yours truly having had her hair cut short for the first time at a hairdressers!  When I went to the said hairdressers, my hair was long enough for me to sit on and had never been cut more than an inch to cut off the dead ends.  But at the time I had this haircut, pageboy styles were the "in" thing and I was now a big girl at comprehensive school so my mother finally  relented and let me have it cut.
I used a plethora of papers all of which were VOS, Bo Bunny, Kaisercraft and I cannot remember the dark brown one as I have binned the tab - Oops!  The flowers were on the reverse of the turquoise paper which I fussy cut and shaped using my new McGill ball tools.  The Prima pearl flourish I bought in Cornwall on a retreat some four years ago and I was just waiting for a suitable project to use them on.
The brads are VOS and I blinged them with schtickles. The flower ribbon was sent to me by my WOYWW PIFer Deeyll - thanks again.
There is a Snippet of waxed cord being woven through the punched edge here.  I had used this on Saturday during an online workshop whereby I made a handstitched book.  That is another blog posting and was hilarious!!  Photos on a layout soon!
These lovely birdies were sent to me by a Playground Buddy.  Aren't they adorable?  A little stamping there on the background with some perfect pearls. The letters were cut on my Cricut. (Note to self....look out for some more fonts!)

The Bo Bunny cream card needed some szchoozing so I used a stencil with some Peacock and Rusty Hinge DIs.   A tab pulled out of the Snippet box, left over from the friend books I made recently.  The funny thing about this layout is that I had company in my craft room whilst creating it through the wonders of technology!  My friend Belinda was in South Africa and we had such a giggle crafting together!  Thanks Belinda.

Before I go I just wanted to share this photo with you.  As I mentioned it has been raining heavily here for two days and imagine my surprise when I peeped over the railing to find this flower blooming!  We have tried for many years to get a Passion Flower to take off here and this year we finally have three buds.  One has already flowered and now this one, though the label was purple so not sure why these are white!

Off over to the Playground to share this layout (Snippets) as well as Our Creative Corner as there are words on my layout too!  Sorry this post is a little long but....well, I wasn't called Miss Chatterbox by Mrs Margerison for nothing!!  

Thanks for calling by.

What a perfect layout, how funny that I too had my neve cut ringlet hair that I could it on cut into a pageboy style also in 1977, mine was blond until then but went dark straight after, I think I may have even had the same t-shirt lol. Hugs, Amanda x

|I remember those page-boys! I could never have one, as my hair was naturally curly - I hated my curls and so wanted to be trendy! My best friend had one of the page-boys! We are still best friends, but her hair is no longer in that style! Anyway, I love your lay-out and those flowers are beautiful. Julie Ann xx

That flower is so gorgeous!
I am getting even more excited...we have planned the drive down and picked up a rental car today. Went out for a drive today and was informed I am the map reader and navigator!

Got a cell phone so will call tomorrow night and check in with you and give you the number.

Great layout!

What a fun layout to commemorate a main event. Love all those papers and flowers. And such a gorgeous flower! Hope the rain stops for you soon although it is great to have an excuse to craft.

Fabby layout Hettie .. .. the parting of lots of snippets there!!!

Your "grown up" hair made me smile. Even that length would be long for me. Mine has never been past my shoulders!! But it has been in a "page boy" style - a very long time ago LOL!!

Love Jules xx

Brilliant layout to mark a milestone Sam. Lovely photos and all those flowers are gorgeous.

But one thing puzzles me - you, a chatterbox? Surely never in the world?! :)

Hugs, Di xx (One more sleep)

A really lovely layout - I love the complementary colours you've used, they sing beautifully together, and the stamping and stencilling to zhuzh up the papers is great. Adorable photos of you so proudly sporting your new haircut too! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Our Creative Corner.

A wonderful layout and fun that it brought memories flooding back to you. I remember my sister having a pageboy haircut.
The flower is so lovely!

Bonnie said...

What a fun memory and lovely photos! Love the layout and pretty flowers! What a pretty passion flower. I see purple stamens (?). It sure is pretty!

Very cute photo's and a fab layout Sam. The flowers are a gorgeous touch.
Errm don't know what VOS means, must be one of Darnell's! Karen x

Love your colourful, layered, layout Hettie and I enjoyed reading about your first haircut. I have Afro hair and as a child I used to dream of having long straight hair! X

Margie said...

This is a great layout Hettie and your flowers turned out really well. That passion flower in your garden is gorgeous too. Thanks so much for joining us at Our Creative Corner. Margie x

Finally have a chance to use a PC and pop back and comment properly on your layout...
I remember page boy hair cuts! You look so must have been so proud...what a brave Mum to let you get so much cut off!

Gorgeous job on the layout and think I spy some familiar
Love all you handmade flowers and the way you tucked pieces under the layer of the DP!

This is the perfect layout to use that flourish...I like to save mine up to treasure them and then sometimes forget to use them at all!
