Seeing Dots and Spots?



I had to laugh with I first saw this image. My mom always wanted me to be a 'frilly' little girl and for the most part dressed me in pink. Unfortunately for her, I grew up in a neighborhood of boys and was the worst tomboy!  This image made me think of those days. Our challenge at ABC this time is "G" for Going Dotty! I chose to make my card a 'big' dot, then I added a bit of paper from the old scrap box that had dots on it. I added dots of Stickles and dots of liquid pearls. The image is colored with Touch Twin markers and guess what? Marker Pop now has refills for them!  The inside of my care (which I forgot to take a picture of) has the same matching paper and I used a computer generated sentiment that says, "This girl can take you out" ...something I probably yelled at my brothers when they were trying to exclude me because I was a "Girl!" LOL! I hope you will join us this week in our fun challenge. Our lovely sponsors are Marker POP and Little Darlin's. Both are lovely places to shop, you should give them a look see. 
My Song: You Belong With Me
You're on the phone with your girlfriend, she's upset
She's going off about something that you said
She doesn't get your humor like I do
I'm in the room, it's a typical Tuesday night
I'm listening to the kind of music she doesn't like
And she'll never know your story like I do
But she wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts
She's cheer captain, but I'm on the bleachers
Dreaming about the day when you'll wake up and find
That what you're lookin for has been here the whole time
If you could see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along so why can't you see?
You belong with me

Love this little tomboy with the slingshot. I can just picture you at that age except you'd have glasses on as I remember you saying. She is totally too cute Miss Patty !! Love your card, your story & that wonderful song ... One of my favorites ..
Hugs, Janie

Oh thanks! I didn't know they had the refills in, great news! This is adorable but I can't see the sweet generous Patty I know being a tomboy! Love the shaped card and all of the polka dots, one of my fav designs.
