Naughty by Nature

Using Scrapbook Challenges sketch 204, here's another entry for Scrappersatsg's challenge 34

This picture was taken 2 years ago.  I was invited for a trial photo shoot from "Naughty by Nature".  The concept was good, the package was enticing but I still had to say "no" though. 

At first I was shy and couldn't really pose but after warming up told myself "oh what the heck" and started enjoying the shoot.   From white shirt & jeans get up, I was asked to change to another costume.  After looking at their selection of clothing, I decided to go with the "Hanbok"

Hanbok (South Korea) is the traditional Korean dress. It is often characterized by vibrant colors and simple lines without pockets. Although the term literally means "Korean clothing", hanbok today often refers specifically to hanbok of Joseon Dynasty and is worn as semi-formal or formal wear during traditional festivals and celebrations. Modern hanbok does not exactly follow the actual style as worn in Joseon dynasty since it went through some major changes during the 20th century for practical reasons

After the shoot they told me about the different packages and benefits of Naughty by Nature, though it's a good deal and was really tempted I still had to say no because it was out of my budget hehehe...

Fortunately, they asked me tochoose 2 of my favorite shots.  They burned it in a CD and gave it to me as a souvenir.

Materials Used:
PP: Pebbles, Buttons, AC Thickers
Embellishments: Maya Road chipboards, Robins Nest, Unity stamps
