Childhood Memories

Remember when we were children? We had so much fun. What did you like to do? I liked to play with dolls and color. Funny, isn't it? I still like to color!

Those of us who are mothers also have a lot of happy memories of when our own children were young. It's fun remembering, isn't it?

I have two cards to show you today and they both remind me of my daughter - way back when she was in Kindergarten.

When Brittney was in Kindergarten she had BIG aspirations. When asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she always said, "Cinderella".

Surprisingly, though, for Halloween that year, she dressed up as a witch. She really liked wearing a witch hat... because for several years after that she always had to drag out the witch's hat to wear. She even wore one when she was in college. Tradition was alive and well.

Brittney, if you take a peek at my blog today, I know that I colored the images with blond hair, but hey! I still thought of you! ;)

Theme: Halloween

I used a Sassy Cheryl's digital image for my card:

I wanted an exclamation point for my sentiment - I use them a lot!!! So I created one with a rhinestone and the tiny little punch that Stampin' UP! used to have...

Theme: Fairy Tales

I used the MelonHeadz Illustrating Cinderella Bundle for my card:

I didn't have a sentiment that I wanted to use for this card, so I created one on my computer...

I hope you'll participate in the ABC Challenges Halloween Challenge this week and the MelonHeadz Friends Fairy Tale Challenge, too.

These two cards are so cute! I love the DP you used on the first card. They are just the perfect papers. The layout and how you fussy cut the images on the second card bring it to life. Great job!
