a dollar photo: Layout for Another Freaking Scrappy

Amazingly enough, it's half way through the month again.

New Challenge up at Another Freaking Scrappy that you need to check out.

Easy to play along, since it's just a sketch challenge.

I rotated it and added a beautiful tag in the one corner that is not on the sketch mainly because I really wanted to showcase this lovely item sent to me from Jean. I thought the tag with the little girl's face really reflected the photo of the two girls.

And who are these lovely small people dressed in bright colors?

They were hanging out with their parents at this overlook we stopped at on the first day. Their parents were selling things and dressing their small people up for photos was likely another way to make some money.

We were coached nicely that we were expected to pay for any photos we may take of the locals.

Generally rule of thumb seemed to be a dollar.

These two small people were not asking me to buy things but I ran into a lot of small children who were selling small trinkets. It was BRUTAL, lol!

Pretty little faces asking for a few dollars.

The little dolls that are in the picture I bought in a park in Lima from a young girl. I wondered why she was not in school, since she was about my daughter's age!

And here is a close up of that gem leaf that is from Prima. I love them!!

Happy Monday and hope your week is full of creativity!


  1. I couldn't remember giving you the tag until I saw it. The likeness to the small faces in the photo is uncanny and the colours reflect the girls clothing too. Love what you did with the sketch.

  2. Just a gorgeous Lo Mitra. Love the colours and the photos are wonderful. When we were in Laos, the only english the kids knew was 'you buy from me one dollar' in a lovely sing song voice that got me every time. Not sure how many woven braclets we came home with...

    Loving your travel photos/stories. more please! xx
