Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #6

Better late then never they say!!

I finally got my card completed for Priscilla's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #6 which was posted on Wednesday. I had to give this one a little extra thought and for some reason, nothing was coming to me!! Well, in the middle of the night, I decided I should use this cute image for my focus! Aren't these babies cute???? Would you believe this is me (the little one) and my sister Linda who is 13 months older than me. (Hence the name panels in the upper right corner.)

Now those were the days when your mom could put you out in the wash bucket for your bathtime ... LOL!!!

My base card is Whisper White and the designer paper is by K&Company. The wider B&W plaid ribbon is from Michael's and the thinner B&W gingham is by Sweet Petites. The B&W flowers are by The Paper Studio and the brads are all from Making Memories. I've used the SU word window to punch out the tabs used for my hand written names.

In case you're interested the approximate time frame of this image is 1952. My how time flies!! I can't believe I'm even sharing a close-up of me in this picture. I just think it's so funny I wanted to share it with you all!!
I think I'll be sending this card to my sister. She just turned 60 last week and I made her a card but I really think she'll get a charge out of seeing this! AWE ... wonderful memories!! We have shared so many!!!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. If you haven't yet checked out this challenge ... you are missing all the FUN & GOODIES!! Please click the link above in this post or the link on my sidebar. Hope you are having a great day!!!!

  2. LOL, For sure sent that to your sister! I too ponder over what to create. That was a stroke of genius to put both your names in the upper right corner like a crossword puzzle. THANK YOU for your continued support at the Midnight Madness sketch challenge.
