A History of Haircuts

Oh yes. I have a history of cutting people's hair. Mostly my own kids' hair but it all started out when I was a kid about 5 years old (I think) and I cut my sister's hair. That's all I remember. That, and the fact that my sister used to have curly locks (so I am told) and they never grew back again after the boyish bob she was given to salvage the hacked style that I had endowed (read inflicted) upon her!!!

Here's a photo of us at the beach with our beautiful hairdos.

Move forward many years...
I am not a hair dresser by any stretch of the imagination but I have cut my friends' hair and I have even cut a stranger's hair! Once I took my friend to the hairdresser for salvage cut (a bit of history repeating itself) - I didn't know how to layer and E and her mum were prepared for me to experiment. :) (I chuckle as I write!!!)

Hennyway. Nowadays I still cut the boys' hair. They are all different. They have different hair and different styles. Their hair often gets way past too long before I cut it. But then I do, and we all breathe a collective sigh of relief. Until the next overdue haircut.

So I did a layout to record this historical event.
Dina Wakley (of whom I am a fan) has a challenge at Scrap Diner (which I joined so that I could do the challenge) where one is challenged to use ink and paint on patterned paper.

Products I used for this layout: Bazzill; Collage Press PP; Luminarte Radiant Rain; Ranger Adirondack Alcohol Ink; Jenni Bowlin Tickets; UniPin Fine Line Pen; Pink Paislee and Making Memories Alphabet Stickers (I'm not sure about that R. it looks a bit E-ish and makes me think of the word faery!); and Making Memories Color Staples. Oh and I used the actual scissors as the mask!!!!
