Lily Bee Contest

i got these lily bee pp's and have always wanted to do a all about me album. it was fun, weird having lots of pix of me but i am learning to embrace that.

since i just turned 33 a few weeks ago, i thought it was fitting to have that in the title...anyone listen to ani difranco? love her, love her voice, her lyrics are aMaZiNg, and she can jam on the guitar like, well, aMaZiNgLy! LOL so she sings this song called 32 flavors and it starts out..."i am 32 flavors and then some..." so i tweaked it a bit to 33 flavors ...

here it is! and thanks for the fun contest...i cut out the front part of the album and made picture window in it. and lots of glimmer mists and color washes & other goodies, including the lily bee diecuts.


some close-ups...














when you flip over the tag it says "i love funky stuff" ;)


some journaling about the past year...


and i covered the back of the photo with some pp..see the next page...





the end!
