Scrap the Girls - June Challenge

Hi there! Over at Scrap the Girls, they have a new blog banner - which is the challenge this month. To use it for inspiration. Flowers. Ugghh! Now, THAT'S a challenge!
I found this old snap with me wearing very 'trendy' short shorts. You know you're getting OLD when the fashions repeat themselves. Sigh. Oh well. Wouldn't mind them legs now. To think I thought they were FAT. Hah! The photo:
3rd Eye flair [YUM!] & chippy circles.....
 
Some of my Dusty Attic winnings...heat embossed to add some 'zing'....thanks for the butterflies, Annette E!
I tucked a Kaisercraft word sticker in, as well as some Studio Calico wood...can you see the 3rd Eye Craft brick mask that I've painted then heat embossed with gold? My fave technique atm, I think:) And those flowers [uggh!] were FUSSY CUT [double uggh!!]. Wanna see Scrap the Girls inspiration banner?

  And here's my page:
Bit different for me...here's a couple more 'closies':
 Love those wooden word hearts.....& lastly:
...a few elements clustered on top:)
Thanks for looking! Lizzy ♥♥♥

  16. This is so sweet with the flowers. They say youth is wasted on the young - so right, back then I was always concerned about the size of my arms/legs/belly etc. Looking at my past photos though, I really don't get what I was thinking!
