Black, purple and an emo named Bex!

My, oh my, what a day yesterday was!
 My sweet, kind, gorgeous, curly blonde haired Daughter has informed me that now she's 
10 years old she wants to be an EMO and a vegetarian!The vegetarian part I can cope with but the EMO part.....hmmmm.......still, don't suppose it really means much at 10, does it? I think emo is originally a genre of music and nowadays is associated with those that wear skinny jeans, striped tops, mostly black with a pop of bright colour and have straight, black hair! For Bex, it means she wants to wear black & purple, tights with shorts and have streaks in her hair lol! I think having big Brothers with tattoos and piercings, etc has finally caught up with her! At least we all like the same music, that's a big thing in our house! So for this little wall hanging I used the fab Nutcrafters stamp...I think she's called Mac.....she's coloured up perfectly in Bex's "emo" colours and she's now hanging on her bedroom wall keeping an eye on everything!
I think you're gonna be seeing a lot more of these fab images....I was lucky enough to win a challenge at Nutcrafters a couple months ago and so bought some gorgeous stamps/digis....great prices and fast delivery, too!
Then yesterday I was lucky enough to win again!!
Anyway, that's enough of my waffling...hope you're all having a great weekend
and thanks for looking, today!
Oh, nearly forgot to say....
Well Done, Phillip Phillips....through to the American Idol final!!
What a voice!

    My daughter is a vegetarian - I thought it would be a phase but she's stuck with it - it got her interested in cooking her own meals... so can't be a bad thing and sometimes she cooks them for us and they are really nice! :-))
