Haircut 101

Upon seeing the fabulous paper from My Minds Eye 'Stella & Rose - Hattie, Happy' collection in my April GoGo kit, which just begged to be cut into & decoupaged and then seeing this LO from Sheena Rowlands, I just had to get the scissors out!

The photo was of me, taken at the grand old age of 5! It was a school photo taken on a Monday after I had decided to cut my hair on the Saturday afternoon! Yep! You read that right! I was cutting chunks of my hair off and putting it into an old shoe box while pretending that each bit of hair was an 'ingredient' in my recipe for tea. My mum was hanging out the washing and helping me with suggestions of another vegetable to put in, completely unaware that I had a pair of scissors in my hand! I can still remember her face when she looked in the box and then at me! Hence the rather short fringe and flicked hair, it was the best the hairdresser could do to tidy up my hair! lol

And of course, while the kit was out, I completed this LO too - photos of Mickey & Costa as kittens, chillin' in one of their usual spaces - Costa in the sun while Mickey was often to be found in a box! Bless him!


  1. Great layouts, you didn't decide to take up hairdressing then? :)

  2. Two beautiful pages Ally - that's a gorgeous kit - almost tempting me ... LOL!
    Great story about your hair too - TFS!

  3. Gorgeous layouts Ally, I'm surprised you didn't follow your talent into hairdressing lol.

  4. Beautiful papers and I love the Chillin' LO, it's gorgeous:)

  5. Classic photo of you! I love the 'chillin' LO - might be tempted to scraplift that if you don't mind!
