That thing you do

I have been taking time off from scrapbooking ... actually I was so caught up in a book that I simply could not put it down. After seeing a video about a lot of fuss about this book, I decided to read it. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I absolutely loved the book! I think it is very relevant too, especially when I see folks trying to ban books. Imagine: Banning a book that tells a story about the total banning of books! I am now reading the White Mughals by William Dalrymple - this will take a while since it is pretty thick. But I am already enjoying it so much! very different genre, of course.

Anyway, today the layout is done with cardstock from Club Scrap Nautical kit. The flower stamp is from another CS kit. The title is a rub on from DCWV. Rhinestone brads & swirly stamps. And vellum from my super old stash.

Lily was a sweet kid ~ most of the time. But she could be stubborn. And this is her 'stubborn' look - chin jutting out, eyes staring, almost glaring, and slightly crossed. When I saw this look I knew that my work would be cut out for me.

I love that book too! I haven't read it in ages but it's one of my favorites. They made a few movies out of it too. What about the commercialism shown, ads personalized on TV, mile long billboards, I'm sure we'll get there too. Scary.
Love your LO. Don't take too much time off 'cause you're a real inspiration! LOL.

With a face like that it would be hard not to melt when you try to "guide" her. Precious!
