Good morning! It's time for TSC {The Scrapbooking Cottage} Wednesday}! Stacy and I are featuring My Mind's Eye Quite Contrary with a scrapbook layout. I based my layout upon a sketch from the March Pagemaps (slightly adapted by me).

I decided to make a layout featuring my DD, Sabrina, and her love of music and performing. I used papers from MME Quite Contrary Mary Mary "Wonderful" (pink papers) and Little Miss Muffet "Delight" (multi-colored polka dots).

The title "diva" is stamped using My Favorite Things Bling 'bet. I cut out the letters, popped them with foam tape, then I added a total of 34 Swarovski crystals to the letters... now that's a lot of bling! Detail shot:

Journaling reads:
"A couple of months before Christmas, we were on our way home from school. As you often do, you were looking through a catalog that had come in the mail. As we were pulling into the garage, you shouted at me to stop and look at this pink microphone and stand. It was the only thing you talked about for weeks. Several times a day, you would ask, “Santa bring pink microphone?” And being the diva that you are, you were relentless! Little did you know that it was sitting in a box in the guest room! Shortly after you requested it, I ordered it so that you would have it to open on Christmas Day! We saved it until the very last present… suffice it to say that you were ecstatic! You immediately had Daddy put it together so you could perform for us. The funniest part?! I didn’t have any “C” batteries, but you didn’t care. You still LOVED it!!"
