"Off To School"-- Miss Alaina This One's For You!

My image is found at "Mo's Digi Stamps". This image reminded me of my dear friend Wendy's second granddaughter. She has three adorable granddaughters two have white cotton blond hair and the biggest blue eyes in the world and they also wear the cutest little glasses. The little one has beautiful red hair and blue eyes. Their 'Oma' misses them as they have moved away and she does not get to see them as often as she likes. (I fully understand!) Anyway, I colored the image with copics and cut it out. I added spica to the glass frames, buttons, and bows in the hair. (I really struggled trying to color a cotton top hairdo!) I had (yes) a scrap of some very strange wonderful foam that is textured on one side and foam on the back. It was just the right shade of yellow/orange to set this image off. I mounted the image with dimensional tape.  I dug into the scrap box for the dp lavender check, and the solid lavender corners. I add the polk-a-dot flower and glued a button on for the finishing touches. The corner and sentiment label are SU and the sentiment is from an unknown set. Let me know if you have suggestions for "cotton-top hair"!
