All of the above girls have so much good information! I am currently a 14-16 (after years of being 8-10) and have found that a) a good bra has worked wonders! A nice push-up does ALOT to draw more attention to "the girls" and away from my belly; and b) Things that are a little more form fitting (not tight) creates a waist -- like a fitted vest or jacket.
I noticed that your hair is up in all but one of the pictures. Your hair is lovely down!
Did you say where the "chandeliers" came from? We're re-doing a house we picked up on a foreclosure and I'm giving my 16 y/o her own room for the first time and she would LOVE to have one like that. I'm sacrificing my privacy in the meantime by moving my 11 y/o special needs son into my (and hubby's of course) room. I figure she'll be gone to college in 2 years so it will be okay (I hope), otherwise I'd have 3 teenage girls in one room -- a recipe for disaster.
I love the process of your whole remodel. I especially love the layers and layers of flooring! It's amazing what you find! You're bedroom turned out beautiful.
When I got my Cricut a few years ago (I have the original one) I sold my Sizzix on ebay. I like that I don't have to store all of those huge dies! I don't use it as much as alot of people -- I didn't know about the SCAL program, that's pretty cool -- but it's great for cards and the kids projects for school. They love that their posterboard titles are always perfect!
She's a lucky girl! We're moving into an OLD house (like 90 yrs) and wanted loft beds for our girls but people mustve been short back then because the bedroom ceilings are super low. I'm jealous! You did a great job!
I am totally fascinated by everyone's pages. I don't know if this question's been asked or answered because I don't have the time to go thru the whole thread but I know alot of you use watercolors on your pages -- how do you keep the pages from getting wavy?
