Come Join us in our t-party this tuesday. We are tickling each other.
It is all about what costume we would dress up as. Many times I would kind of dream of being like a princess, like Cinderella and get swept off feet or like snow white and be around all the precious animals as well as a prince. then one would dress up like in a ball ( and must say part of that dream is being a real princess size too...why not it IS a dream...lol..)
So I designed a princess dress using die-cuts. The blue ruffles are scalloped ovals, cut to size and the bottom white part is a oval cut in half and then I trimmed off the bottom with fancy scissors. I was trying to think of what to use for the top adn then I thought of my poinsettia die....worked perfectly, just cut 2 leaves out.
then I embossed the white part and the bg paper which I happen to stumble on trying to figure out how to present this pretty dress has the same shading like the ruffles..ombre? then of course a princess needs sparkles and pearls.
This should be a great party and now I have a pretty dress to wear...as well as whom ever receives it. Its size is very adjustable...;0).
thanks for the great ideas and for the visit, cant wait to see what everyone is dressing up like.
