10/17/16 - MIM #74

Make it Monday #74 is live over at the "Memory Nest" Blog!

Here's the sketch followed by my take on it:
MIM #74
"Curly Hair Do Care"
 Journaling: "I have naturally curly hair but prefer it straight.
I've mentioned before I'm not good w/ triangles as a design element* so I decided to "follow" the sketch by using "triangle" patterned BG paper.
*see my post for MIM #67
The story behind these photos?
As much as I enjoy capturing special events, I also think it's important to capture the everyday; which is why I love the Echo Park "My Life" collection (here I used their "Saturday" and "Capture Everyday Moments" stickers)!
I thought sharing the fact that I straighten my naturally curly hair may be an interesting fact to future generations.
Or not... LOL!
Regardless it was a fun layout to make!
And the title came from the popular saying and hash tag "Curly Hair Don't Care".
I've actually used it myself on my curly haired photos but only the ones where my curly hair looks fabulous, because otherwise I "do" care!

Okay enough about me...
