1971 Flower girl page

Hello! Iam still working on the old pictures of me. I was the flower girl in my Aunts wedding in 1971. I believe it was March so that makes me about 3 1/2. I have been told that I refused to walk down the aisle so my Mom (the matron of honor) had to carry me!
I also think it is funny how styles have changed. Today, this dress would not be considered but I am sure it was totally in style back then!! I remember that dress pretty well. My mom kept it for a long time. She might still have it, I don't know. There was a light green ribbon across the chest so that is the color I started with for this page. Then, I decided it was too blah so I added the purple, then the orange flowers. I love all the flowers and the butterflies. Thisis the most embellished page I have ever done. I love the pages I see that other scrappers do that are just overwhelmingly beautiful with all the embellishments but I just can't seem to do that. It always seems like too much to me. Maybe I just need to go for it and pile it on!!
In scrapping all these pictures I have realized how my mom can not take good pictures!! EVERY single picture is off center or too far away or something. She always seems to think if she is taking a picture of a person, she has to get the whole body in!! Thank goodness she now has a digital camera!!
Thanks for looking and reading my ramblings!!


  1. This is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!! I love the color and the texture. You did a wonderful job :)

  2. Way to use up a flower stash! I need to make a few hundred layouts like this. (I used to hoard prima flowers!)
