Always a Girly Girl

Hi everyone, can't believe how quickly spring is going! and I haven't even touched a thing in my garden yet...hmmmm... could it have something to do with the fact that I seem to spend all my waking hours in my scraproom??? Naw, couldn't be! :) . This is a LO I did of Chelsea yesterday that I've had in my head for a long time now. She's ALWAYS been enamoured with dresses, from a very young age. Even now at almost 17 , she still loves dresses and never passes up an opportunity to buy one if she can weedle the $$$$ outta me! The only time she would wear a pair of pants to school when she was little was on gym days...and that was only cuz she couldn't wiggle back into her tights herself! The pretty ribbon flower was made using a tutorial by Lisa-Nazario-Gregory . You can find her and all her beautiful work here: . The dress form is my own little creation! I can't find one around here {and don't have the patience to wait to order one in!} so I made do with what I had. I drew this one on white cardstock, added a little glue and glitter,{it sparkles more IRL} cut it out and used popdots to give it a bit of dimension on my LO. It's no Dusty Attic heehee but it'll do until I can get my hands on some of that stuff! Have you seen it ? Wow. It is the most gorgeous chipboard EVER! I'm pleased with the title too. I lucked into an awesome deal at "wallyworld' last week! There were boxes of Autumn Leaves stamps {7-8 stamp packages ...not just individual stamps!} on sale for $19.99!!!! It's about a $100 value! It also included some tags and a book. I decided to be greedy and pick up another one hoping that it would be all different stamps in the second box. Not exactly...the book was a different one and 3 outta the 7 stamp sets were different. I guess I 'll hand on the repeats to somebody else.But I digress [ as usual...flight of ideas!} ...what I started to tell you was about the title...The 'always ' was one of the words in this Autumn Leaves stamp set...there were others including the word "grin' . By stamping those two words a couple of times and cutting out individual letters, I was able to come up with all the letters for my title. I was pleased becuz it gave a consistent look to the title. I dressed up the "always ' with markers and lots of bling, then popdotted it also for dimension. Thanks for popping by! A great big Happy National Scrapbooking Day to you all this May 1st! Hope you all have a great scrappy day!
