WOW! Did I ever have alot of fun with this one! I was cleaning up my scrap room (which still is NOT clean!!) and found some papers that I always wanted to use and never did. I just copied this pic that I borrowed from my dad. It's my sister and I when we were 3& 6 years old. I still remember my mother getting us ready and taking us to Keddy's to get them done. Laugh. (BTW, if you are wondering what the big W is for, it's mine and my sis's maiden name initial)

First of all, I know this isn't my normal scrappy style-I normally scrap more wild and funky colors since I normally scrap only boys, but I RARELY get to scrap 'girlie'. Once I had the papers picked out (and it wasn't as much of a process as it normally is, the papers kinda just fell into place) I was at a loss & had NO idea what I would do next. and then I thought, 'What would Amanda or Tracey do? '
I am VERY lucky to say these 2 girls are good friends and scrappy divas (PLUS they both scrap 'pretty LOs' VERY well)!
SO I went through their galleries and got some MAJOR inspo!
Thanks, Ladies!

I cut black pattern paper from a BG Origins pattern (note: It's not backed with anything, that's my pillow and bedding you're seeing behind it-Laugh) I then layered it with sheets of the totally neglected BG Sugared line I have been hoarding saving for about 2 years and never used. I also used some chipboard from that same line. The white lacey pattern on the black scalloped cardstock is actually a lace doilie that I bought from the Dollarama (btw-they come 4/$1) and adhered with Fabritac adhesive. This stuff is the catz MEOW. It dries fast and bonds fabric to paper (and other fabric) very well.
Supplies: CS- DCWV, Papers-BG (Origins & Sugared), lace trim-Prima,
Felt Trim-Crate Paper, Chipboard-BG (Sugared),W (mono)-ColorBok, Bling-BoBunny,
Buttons-Misc (from stash), Alphas-Jenni Bowlin,
Lace Doilie, Jewellery cord & Paper Doilie-Dollarama

If you have made it this far-THANK YOU!!
And so sorry about the long post- I am certain this sort of thing won't happen again for a LONG time.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!
