2022 A Cut Above

 So, now I can go back to 2022 makes! LoL As I wrote in the post about cameras, my original plan was to use all digital stamps and old paper pads and I started the year out with themes. I did cameras and then I moved on to this awesome, discontinued Salon paper pad from Echo Park. So all these cards are hairdresser themed and papers are from this specific pad. Also, while looking through my stamps, I found this ever so much fun stamp that was PERFECT for my daughter! I couldn't help myself!

Ssooo... when DD was fifteen, she got a round hair brush wrapped around her bangs. I'll never forget it. I cannot. I scrapbooked about it! It was a Friday. The last day of spring break. She'd been home all week with a cold. She was so excited to go out and hang with some of her friends. She calls me in tears at the office about mid-morning. She wanted me to be a hero! Sadly, my thought was to follow through with the brush and just made the whole thing worse! She then calls back to complain about my advice! Can you believe that!?! She proceeds to tell me that the mom of one of her friends was a hair stylist and she'd agreed to fix her hair. So I thought the catastrophe had been taken care of and went back to work. I get home at five and what do I encounter? My daughter sitting in her bedroom with the hair brush still wrapped around her bangs. Or her bangs wrapped around the brush. However you'd like to picture that! The friend's mother meant when she got home after six or seven. However late her last appointment ran. I called our hairdresser and explained what had happened. She told me she was booked solid but to bring her in and she'd work her between appointments. My answer to the whole thing was to cut off the hair and style the remaining hair around the bald spot. Yes, I am an evil mother. My daughter reminds me everytime we are shopping and I hand her a round brush and ask if she'd like me to buy it for her. Long story short... it took the hair dresser till eight that evening to work the brush out of daughter's hair. Hairdresser would have huge chunks of hair come off in her hand and she'd tuck them into her pocket so daughter wouldn't see the hair and lose it. I. Took. Pictures... of the WHOLE thing. It's why it is scrapbooked! So when I saw this image, I knew exactly what it called for! Because I am an evil mother! It's a cross I have to bear!
This is a digital stamp and I've colored the image with Copic markers. I inked all the papers with Tim Holtz distress ink in Black Soot. 
This digital image from Fairy Ink was also a perfect match for this paper! I think Fairy Ink is long gone because I could not find anything for her. I colored the image with Copic markers, silver gel pen and Stickles in Star Dust. 
This digital image from MazyArt was also a perfect match! MazyArt went out of business long ago. I colored the image with Copic markers, silver gel pen and Stickles in Star Dust.
This super cute digital stamp is from The Paper Shelter called Barber Shop. Who would have ever guessed that?!? I've colored the image with Copic markers and a silver gel pen.
