My Mornings & Growing Up

DSO-DOsie Week 4

YAY time for another weekly challenge on the DSO Blog!!

Your challenge, should you accept it....make a layout of a typical morning for YOU!!

Here's mine:

{ I used LPand3dogs "This-N-That" & KimB "card-arrows" blog freebie}
If you take on this challenge, don't forget to leave a comment with a link on the DSO Blog.

I also made this layout for the DSO Book of Me Challenge. I'm not sure I've ever completed a layout for that challenge before, although I've wanted to each month.

Yep, that's me when I was 14 and a Freshman in high school (although we called it 9th grade because we were still at the junior high). Anyway, I had big poofy hair including the bangs!! I used LOTS of hairspray (never liked the aerosol though). I had bad acne (which I spared everyone by cleaning it up in Photoshop..thank goodness - wish I could've done that in real life)! haha And I don't know what happened but seriously, the week I graduated high acne totally cleared up and I only get a couple zits at a time when I get them! I feel as though I deserve some clear skin though, my skin was so bad & I started getting zits when I was like 12. None of my friends had them, I felt so icky. That's what happens when you have oily skin. I even washed my face all the time. Went to the dermatologist, that helped for a while but too expensive to keep it up.

My eyebrows were weird, sparse yet all over. My Mom kept trying to help me use some tweezers but I was so scared that I would do it wrong and it would look BAD! So I didn't tweeze at all. But really, how could they get any worse than they already were?! LOL :) I also used to get perms probably every 6 months! My hair used to be totally straight before perms, but once I stopped getting perms, my hair suddenly started to do a not-very-pretty wavy curl thing, but mostly in the back! It's gotten curlier since I had kids too. Blah! So I have to blow dry my hair straight or use a flat iron once in a while.

Alright, 'nuff about the good ol' days of adolescence! This was a fun layout to make. Just looking at it makes me feel kinda old. I felt so *grown up* at 14 with my makeup and big hair! tee hee

I used my "My Girl" flowered paper {and elements that I'm still working on}. Hopefully I will get them finished, so I can get them in the store. So, this layout is kind of like a little sneaky peek!!

I love that story !! I think I could say the same for me. Based on what I remember about 9th grade you were definitely in style !!

Thanks for the compliments! I just love making the book templates. Have you heard of Heritage Makers?

I'm glad your friends blog worked! I'm sorry yours didn't. I wish I knew what was up with it.

I just downloaded your Dad's Den kit. I need to download the rest of your freebies! I worry that the links are going to expire.

Once I make a few layouts with that kit, I'll let you know.

Thanks again! I'm glad we met!
