"When I was accepted into the Carter Concert Choir, I knew that I rally must have some talent. I was almost 14 years old and in an internationally famous and beloved choir, with one of the most renowned teachers in the system. I was now able to get my concert jacket (shown in the pictures) as well as the cute cowgirl clothes I'd seen in my mother's pictures and always adored.<BR><BR>I daydreamed of becoming famous one day, though I knew that probably wouldn't manifest into reality. It was at theis point in my life when I started considering music as a careeer. I'd always wanted to be a teacher, so maybe I'd teach music. I still had a while to go before I had to decide, but the seeds were not only planted but growing at incredible rates. I was inspired, encouraged, and tutored in the musicailty that I so desperately depended on at this point in my life, and I grew in it, and loved and cherished every minute of it!"<BR><BR><BR><BR>Requirements:<BR><BR>Vellum - I'm just LOVING using vellum to disguise bad pictures! These pics are all computer copies, and on this last picture the ink is a different color than the rest and even waves in itself. If you look closely, you might can tell that the last pic on that page and the first pic on that page are not the same tint - the one under the vellum has BOTH tints in it. I also think that my pose in that pic is cute behind the vellum - kind of mysterious!<BR><BR>Fiber - I used fiber to make the title! I was impressed with myself! The mesh is sorta sticky so it held in place while I figured out where it went, and then afterwards I ran it through my Xyron and stuck it on permanently.<BR><BR>Paint - I took a star die cut and used my paints AROUND it on the first page to create a border for my pic and journal box. I actually made one to use under the journalling too, but the journalling was longer than I'd anticipated.<BR><BR>SG items - the brads (small ones) Item Number: 104-00839<BR><BR>the star die cut I used to paint around is in this set - Item Number: 134-00177 (First I rounded the corners and used it, then I cut off the white part and rounded the corners and used it again.)<BR><BR>(I was kind of assuming that the die cuts and the stickers could be found here, but I couldn't find them???)<BR><BR><BR><BR>Products used:<BR><BR>jewel red cardstock, paperbilities<BR><BR>blue cardstock from TLC<BR><BR>die cuts by Cross My Heart<BR><BR>blue fiber from (Blues Clues?) swap<BR><BR>brads were RAK to me<BR><BR>buckle from a swap<BR><BR>vellum was RAK to me<BR><BR>mesh is regular drywall mesh from Wal-Mart<BR><BR>stickers are from my LSS and didn't have a brand name on them.....

You've done a great job, and yes...the vellum over the picture does make you look more mysterious!

I knew who it was when I saw the picture, and Texas..lol.  Great job DaLynn!  You haven't changed a bit.  How the heck can you stick the fiber on the page, I find it a pain..lol.
