Super Memories

Who doesn't have memories of dressing up as a super hero?  When I was a kid my family and my cousins family went on vacation at the Jersey shore.  It was a different time, a time when parents let kids go out by themselves.  We used to go to the boardwalk and drape our towels over our shoulders and pretend to be Superman and we'd dive off the boardwalk into the sand dunes.  It may sound dull or dorky but we were having the time of our lives.

In the not so long ago past my little darling used to dress herself up in some wacky outfits.  There was almost always a pair of panties on the outer most layer and often a long sleeved tee shirt with the sleeves tied criss cross over her chest.  I have no idea how she did it but she did and she would run around the house yelling "Super Liddy".  I remembered scrapping it so I dug out the books and found the page.  Too bad I didn't have this image when I made the page. 

This image made me realize how much I've neglected scrap booking, I haven't made a page in over two years.  I think it's time to start catching up.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Mo Manning "Super Dupper Girl"
ink - hp printer; Ranger "Spiced Marmalade"
paper - Stampin' Up "So Saffron" and "Brocade Blue" cs, "Patterns Pack ll" and "Patterns Stack - Subtles"
miscellaneous - copics; Technique Tuesdays chipboard scalloped circles; Martha Stewart flowers; My Favorite Things "Oval" and "Fishtail Banner" die-namics

Here's the challenges:
Bronte and Bella #151 - Anything Goes
Mojo Monday #258 - sketch
City Crafter week 126 - Polka Dots Palooza
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Hero (inspired by my little Super hero - but as today is 9/11, I have to give a big thank you to all the real heroes who jumped right into the foray, living just a few miles outside of NYC there were many of our local fireman who sped to the scene to help.  I am sure that at every spot the terrorists hit the locals ran in to help, that's what they do GOD BLESS THEM ALL for what you did that day and for what you do everyday.)
