Solitary Girl

Supplies : Paper - Marrakech by Basic Grey, Brown Swirl by Pebbles Inc.; Kraft Cardstock; Brads Abbey Road by My Minds Eye; Just Chillin' Card for Slice by Making Memories; Sewing machine and white thread

Using your Die Cutting machine is the challenge this week at Practical Scrappers. I have to say this was a very sad little photo shoot. I had taken the girls to a spot by the college last March to get some pretty sister pictures. This area has a lovely water feature and these large red rocks placed for bences. But for some reason Audrey just didn't want to be near Caitlyn and Caitlyn was content to run off and do her own thing so instead of getting sweet sister pics I got some solitary grumpy girl ones. So here's the best photo out of them all, Audrey's pouty self on the rock, lol. I took inspiration from a layout on Susan's blog (second one down). Hers is so cute and happy ;) Anyway, the design of her layout fit perfectly with how I wanted to do the title, which was the only thing I knew what I wanted to do with. I cut the solitary in lowercase and then girl in upper case subbing the 'I' for a girl cutout all done with the Just Chillin' card on my Slice. I pop dotted the girl image up to make it stand out of the title more and then added a stitched frame around the title and picture. Even if the pictures didn't come out great, I think this layout did ;) Gotta love Audrey's solemn faces, lol. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Tuesday!

Hi Marjorie! Great job on the die cut challenge! I love the title, especially the girl cut-out. And the picture of your daughter is adorable, even as grumpy girl.
