Once upon a time...

I finally finished my first assignment for the class When I grow up that I taking from Shimelle. We were asked to write our own children's stroy about one of the things we wanted to be when we grew up. Here is my little book that I did for this assignment.
The story reads:
Once upon a time on an island paradise far far away (well not that far) there lived a little girl who dreamt of becoming an Air Hostess, as this is what Flight Attendants were know as during the era this little girl lived.

Although the little girl had flown from the time she was two years old it was not until she was around seven when she flew on Air Canada to visit her aunts and uncles in Toronto that her dream of becoming an Air Hostess was born. She just fell in love with how glamorous the life seemed. The little girl dreamt of jet setting from city to city, country to country, and continent to continent. How fun that would be she thought. She would lie awake at night imagining herself hurrying through the airport pulling her carryon luggage behind her in her smart Air Hostess uniform looking forward to her next world wide adventure.

Unfortunately as time went on the little girl found out that in times of crisis or problems the Air Hostess was the last to leave the plane and slowly the job did not seem as glamorous as she once thought it was. So she decided that she would just have to see the world as a passenger instead.

The End

I used Sassafraslass patterned paper, Bazzill Bling cardstock and Purple Onion stamps from my Self Addressed Kit; Sugarloaf, Inkadinkado, Rubber Stampede, and My Sentiments Exactly stamps; Ranger Archival and Colorbox Chalk inks; Royal & Langnickle rubons; Wal Mart ric rac; Junkitz stickers; Signo Uniball pens; Microsoft Clipart; postage stamps from skyblyepink.com; and unknown ribbon, shrink plastic flowers, eyelets, and stickers.

How cute! I love it! Page 2 with you wearing the uniform & pulling your luggage is priceless!

The little stewardess silhouettes remind me of when I was a little girl - all glamour - no danger!
