AJC # 40

This week's challenge is: not anymore, what is not anymore in your life, how are you not anymore, how is it not anymore?!!!
A little later then usual, but, since it is Thanksgiving here, I had to make the stuffing for the Turkey first, that thing is in the oven now...... Can you imagine, having Thanksgiving when it's almost 30 degrees outside?? Boy, is it hot in the kitchen:-) Anyway, while Henk was stuffing the Turkey, I sat down and did my card for this week, which I loved to do.... I found an old diary a while ago, (so cool to read all that sentimental teenage stuff!) in which I also put some photo's of those days. And this sure was a long, long time ago, I guess I was about 16/17 years young..... and I always had a perm, cause I hated my hair, flat, couldn't do anything with it.....

But not anymore.. ..... no more perm for me!!! I'm very sure that my hair will stay like it is now, short, very easy to handle, hasn't seen a brush in ages...... and those perm days are definately over and done with!!
I used my Dymo labeler, sanded the edges of the photo and the BG Blush, used rub-ons by Polar Bear, which I got from my "sister" and a black Glaze pen!

For those of you who live in Canada, Happy Thanksgiving to you all, enjoy the beautiful fall weather, and for everybody else all over the world, have a great day/afternoon/night!

Definitely very 80's :D Love your card and definitely no perms for me either!

Happy Thanksgiving to you! Ours (in the US) isn't for another month.

What a great card! I think every girl goes through that phase in their teenage years where they got a perm (I know I did!). The worst part? They don't look good on anyone!

Love the arrow, love the perm.
Been years since I got one too.

I love the polka dots! I am a huge fan of them and I love them on your card! Perms have to be done right for them to look good. They are not for everyone that is for sure!

michelle said...

Haahaa! Great card! The last time I had a perm was 15 years ago!

Adorable! I used to perm my hair all through high school and collage, too! Man, maybe I'll copy your idea and bring out some of those big hair pictures!!

Wat een heerlijk kaart, inderdaad de permanetjes tuurlijk heb ik die ook gehad maar voor mij ook niet meer hoor ;), heerlijk he terug lezen in oude dagboeken etc, laatst mijn zoldertje opgeruimd en kwam allemaal oude brieven en dingen tegen, mijn jeugd kwam weer door mijn handen..schoot voor geen meter op natuurlijk maar dat was wel de moeite waard :)
