|My sister Nancy in 1966|
I should probably start by explaining the title of this layout. When we were children, my mother liked to give us silly nicknames that rhymed with each other. My sister Nancy was called Nanky Poo and I was Trailer Boo.
For the background I used a piece of 7 Dots Studio paper from their Cotton Candy Dreams collection.

I did some stamping on the background in grey ink.

These are the dies and punch I used:
As usual, I layered all the die-cut pieces over a black version, offsetting them slightly to accentuate the edges.
These are the chipboard pieces I used:
I embossed the chipboard pieces with Walnut Stain Distress Embossing Powder but I didn't like how dark they looked so I embossed them again with a light sprinkling of Dried Marigold Distress Embossing Powder.
