Hairdresser Ellie!

Hello there! I’m back again! 

So today I am showcasing on The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge Blog !
Christine released some gorgeous new dolls on 12th April which you can see here and I have used one of those sweet girls called Hairdresser Ellie.
I chose this image as it very evocative for me.  My mum was a hairdresser for over 30 years! When I was growing up (still a work in progress) she had her own small salon at the front of our house so the smell of perm solution and setting lotion hold a lot of memories for me. Not necessarily all good you understand.  The 80’s will always be a decade my mop would rather forget!! J

Fairly light on adornment this one but I did find a sewing shears charm in amongst some embellies which I think passes as a pair of hairdressing scissors.  Best not try to trim your bob with them though!! J

Card: Neenah Solar White – Kraft
Paper: LOTV ‘Beach Bliss’
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Dies/Punches: Spellbinders ‘Timeless Rectangles
Others: Pearls –Twine – Ribbon – Scissors charm – Liquid Pearls – Faux Stitching

So hair (!) along to the blog and join in with our current challenge which is always Anything Goes and where you will find some stunning inspiration from the DT! There is always a fab prize on offer too and visit the shop to see all of Christine’s adorable rubber stamps!!

Thanks so much for looking, and have a wonderful day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
