Today Rhonna provided us with this word art...

Well I don't know about anyone else...but I've been having an awful time with letting SUMMER GO...I have never been a fan of autumn because it means winter is next...and I hate winter! Cannot emphasize that enough....hate...hate...hate...winter! OKAY...now that I've got that out of my system I can move forward. So I decided to make the best of a difficult situation and "imagine" where I'd like to be this fall...Paris! Even more so after reading Erin Gates blog post about how fashionable smart French women are...she just returned from Paris after vacationing there with her DH...lucky, lucky Girl! So today I played "paper dolls" and cut up my newest "In Style" magazines with all the latest and greatest...fall clothes...
There was one article titled "Transition Plan...Ease into autumn by reworking your summer favorites"...and I loved that I could still wear my white jeans...yeah! I made a "tape transfer" out of the article's title and out of Rhonna's word art.
Had some scrap paper from my previous "Sunday" journal pages and was excited to use it again on these "autumn" pages. I used gold card-stock to mount my "paper dolls" onto because I needed to stabilize my journal pages...cause I rubbed so darn hard on the previous pages...remember my sun rays/bursts...that I wore a couple of holes right through to this page...lol Here's a close-up of the right side:
Final photo...of the two completed pages...it's funny when I was a teenager I used to make collages of clothes...poster size on art boards...and mount them to my closet doors so that I could "imagine" what I wanted to wear to school or what ever each day. So technically...I was doing "dream/vision" boards before it was "cool"...call me Barbara Mandrell...you know..."I was country before country was cool."
For this autumn...I'm sticking to my jeans and will dress them up with crisp white shirts or cami's and sweaters. I'll grab my favorite boots and clogs and will add scarves around my neck and bags every chance I get. French women have style and confidence in their clothes and I'm going to have some of that because I'm going to dress "less" in good clothes that I'm comfortable in...not what is in "fashion" right now...not sure if I'm going to try those "toe-less" booties that are so popular...just seems weird to me...makes me cold thinking of it...and you know how I feel about the cold...have a great night!
