The photograph was taken after my 2nd daughters first full day at school... after the school day had finished, she and her sister played in the park swapping tales of new friends and teachers, teaching each other new games - and Katie tried to tell the time by blowing at a dandelion tuft.
Core'Dinations cardstock was used for the background paper, and I decorated it myself... using a white gel pen and also stitching to create the white dandelions on the background, and embellished these with little tiny glass beads I had in my stash drawers. I decided to use two oval shapes to frame the photograph - and instead of using paper or cardstock, stitching seemed a nice, plainer, alternative. Machine stitching around the edges (took me ages... darn sewing machine! *lol*), and a little inking finished it off. Funny thing is, this ended up nothing like what it was supposed to be - I preferred to keep it less fussy and let the work done on the background papers stand out on it's own and compliment the photograph. No added flowers, ribbons, buttons, brads or Ranger inks. Not like me at all!
