Hippy Chick!

Hi everyone I'm here to show you my new tag for the Q&L challenge over at the Craft Barn. Last week I nearly missed the deadline which is not easy as we are given a fortnight to come up with our creations!

Today we start our sixth Quotes and Lyrics challenge and the two new words are...................................................

Flower and/or Travel
You will need to use either (or both if you wish) of these words in a quote or song lyrics on your sample.

I'm trying to stay with lyrics and  although there are numerous songs with specific flowers mentioned there are not many with just the word flower, but my age is giving me away again, come and see:


I found this Blossom hippy chick on    Lacy sunshine stamps    and using Craft Artist I put her on top of my lyrics and added shadow to make her stand out. I coloured her with PM.s and added a few little paper flowers, some glossy accents and distressed the edges with Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick DI.

This song came out in 1967, sung by Scott McKenzie and I was working in London by the Ritz hotel in my first hairdressing position after finishing college. Exciting times with lots of celebs coming and going:)

Thanks for visiting and maybe you'd like to join in this challenge too.
