Using a famous quote on a layout

I love my granddaughters.  It is difficult to let them know, and understand, that the teen years are to be spent having fun and learning about themselves.  With all the bullying going on around the world and the fashion industry bombarding young girls with images to be idealized it is no wonder our young girls are a mess and the suicide rates are too high.

Hedy Lamarr.  Who is she?  Many of you may not have even heard the name before.  Mainly because Hedy Lamarr was of a time long ago.  She made her mark in the movie industry in the 1930’s and 1940’s.  She was a glamorous and beautiful woman.

Did you know that this glamorous and beautiful woman was smart?!  I mean really smart!  She invented a communication device with an unbreakable code for the allied troops during World War II.  She even holds a patent for her invention.

Hedy Lamarr: Movie star, inventer of WiFi

It is with this idea in my mind, I wanted to let my granddaughter know that beauty and glamor is not everything in a girl’s life.

  • Any girl can be glamorous.  All you have to do is stand still and look stupid. – Hedy Lamarr

I want my granddaughter to know that she is fantastic just as she is.  She is beautiful.  Just be herself.  And most of all….TRUST herself.

So that is the end of my rant. 😀

Tomorrow…..how to build a pocket behind a photo using “structure strips”.
