This is a mini album that I made for the Crafty Scrapper design team. 

A little background information about this album is that Liz had been to prom the previous year with a dear friend of hers. She discovered that prom didn't exactly live up to her expectations, so by the time she was a senior, she was a little jaded about the event. She didn't want to wear a real girly formal like she had the year before and had seen photos of female stars wearing tuxes for women in a magazine. She was inspired to wear a tux, which she thought was tres chic! We found a pant suit that looked very much like a tux and I sewed on the rhinestones.....just the perfect touch for a girl who rarely does whatever "they" are doing!

The lyrics to "Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better" from the musical, Annie Get Your Gun, came to mind when journaling this mini album. The original lyrics are by Irving Berlin. I used a little poetic license and changed the words to fit the occasion. 

Thanks for your comments!
