This is what I came up with. I am not 100% on it but it is another challenge complete right.
The background paper is Studio Calico and I thought since the challenge on SOC is - My Black is Beautiful! My Black is my HOOD! City, suburbs, country, cornfields. It's either were you are or where you call home/grew up. However, you define it is your 'hood. This is about your neighborhood and where you live. This challenge is about sharing your beautiful 'hood!
The first picture is of my mother and sister and me. This is where my love of hats come from as a little girl I would get a hat and cherish it. The bottom picture is take in my grandmother's house which was my second home growing up. Oh how I miss my mother and grandmother.
I used the wood verner from Diane and put glossy accent on it but it buckled but it is okay and then I added a wood heart from Studio Calico and used red bic pen. The stickers are from Bo Bunny.
This piece was a scrap I had on a desk calendar last yr and instead of throwing it out I just re used it. I cut love cut out is from Lakisha on FaceBook. I received it in an order from her on the Scrap Yard.
