365 Cards: Teen Scene

Hey there people! Today's 365 Card Challenge is to use a teenage girl as your inspiration. I am ashamed to admit, that I no longer know what it is like to be a teenager! I really NEVER thought I would get that way, but it has finally happened. I guess that means I'm old? Or finally a parent ; ) So today's challenge was tough for me. Good thing I ran across this fun, bright paper by American Craft! I don't know if it screams "teen!" in 2010, but to me it's fun, loud, and a bit crazy which is how I would describe my life when I was a teen. Here is my card:

I used this cute digi stamp image from In Style Stamps.  It seemed pretty darn "teen" too me. I found the sentiment 'girl' stamp and wrote the word 'hey' in red myself.
I made this card 4.25 square. I wanted it to be a bit smaller. Something you could slip into a backpack or leave in a teens bedroom. Of course considering how messy I am as an adult, I should have made this card HUGE in order for a teen to find it in their room. I always remember heaps of clothes. What about you?? Do you know what it's like to be a teen nowadays?  Or maybe you still are one, I would LOVE to hear from you!

Anyway, hope you like today's card. I am off to do some errands and general upkeep in life. Hope you have a splendid day!

I remember when I had to stop shopping in the jrs. department and realize I was a MISSES department. That was a sad day. Cute card.
