I love this photo of my friend's little girl. She has such beautiful features and looks so feminine. But she's the boss of the bunch. She the youngest of our 3 boys and her brother, takes what she wants, does what she wants and no one can tell her to do any different. If you look closely at the photo, she's got streaks of dirt on her face because she just can't stay clean. I just love her.

I used a piece of KI lace cardstock to mask my whole background and sprayed with Maya Mist.
I had recently seen someone using PYT as a title and I knew I needed to use it for this photo. I kept the title the same colours as the paper it's mounted on because I wanted the focus to stay on the photo.
For those of you who don't know what PYT stands for ... it's Pretty Young Thing. Don't tell me if you didn't know 'cause I'll just make fun of you ;)

Martha Stewart glitter on Maya Road chipboard. I do so enjoy the look of MS glitter. It's a good job that I do because I always manage to cover myself in it when I use it. After I finished this one, I was watching TV and kept thinking I saw little flashes of light out of the corner of my eye. I seriously thought that lightening bugs had gotten in the house. When I washed my face before bed, I noticed that I had glitter in my eyelashes. At least I don't have lightening bugs in the house.

Have a great day and if you're looking for something to do, make sure you stop by Noel Mignon for the Sizzlin' Summer Crop.
