January Layout - Just the Way You Are

Just The Way You Are

This layout was created for a challenge (yes, that's right... I made something!) over at the Scraptastic Kit Blog.  The Challenge is to create a layout with a filmstrip (created my own) and use a song title on your layout.  My song title is 'Just the Way You Are' by Bruno Mars.

About the photos:
In January Sami turned 14.  For her birthday we did 'girly' things.  Jake (her brother) and I took her clothes shopping and she picked out clothes that she wanted for herself (we have Beale's, Maurice's and Walmart in our area). 
Then, I scheduled her for a hair appointment.  She wanted her hair layered.  And so, layers it was.
The bottom photo in the home-made film strip is a pile of hair -that looks awfully light!
And, I captured myself in the mirror - with her watchful eye.

This was one of those days where Jake did a lot of sitting... and playing on his Ipod.

So pretty, Andi! I love the way this has the feel of a photo strip without being one!
