This was me aged 7 months on Boxing Day 1970 with my new toys, I loved that Golliwog.
This was in the very hot summer of 1976 when I was 6 years old, I think we were on the Isle of Wight? Mum wasn't too happy with me as I refused to wear my bikini top for the duration of the holiday and I kept getting called sonny. Can you see my hernia? That was my party piece when I was little I used to do a crab and it would pop right out, further than in the picture, and then I would push it in with my finger and it would temporarily disappear with a satisfying crunch. Don't know what happened to it, I never had an operation so it must have just got covered up with layers of fat over the years.
I've done another one at last taking my total up to 6 - a Digi layout that is. I have been putting it off for weeks now as I know it takes me 10 times longer than anyone else to do these as I have to look up how to do everything. I know I will get there in the end but at the moment it is slow going. I'm quite pleased with this one as I made the patterned papers myself using some brushes called Dark & Gothic from SS ? and some paper from Digitreats. The font used is called 1928. I can't work out where I got the star stamp thing from it says mmareda on it so I don't know if that means anything to anyone. **I must remember to make a note of where I get these bits from in the future**
I did this one for a scrap lift challenge on Designer Digital's. I stuck pretty closely to the LO that was to be lifted I'm sure when I am a bit more confident I will start to make it my own but at the moment I am learning loads from copying and find that challenging enough.
