Lace and Pearls are always in fashion

Growing up I was a real tomboy. I loved to wear jeans and t-shirts more than dresses and pretty clothes. My poor mom was beside herself every time I walked in the house covered with dirt from head to toes. It was not before my 18th birthday that I finally decided that maybe I should look like a girl since that is what I am. I started wearing dresses and pretty clothes. I even let my hair grow long. I started wearing make up and finally graduated to pumps and cute shoes soon after. It was a real extreme make over. Many years later, I still wear dresses and pretty clothes, but I also love to wear my jeans and t-shirts... they are so much more comfortable. ;)

So when Brenda came up with the new challenge at Guylou's Inimitability and challenged us to make a project using lace and pearls, it brought back all the memories I wrote above.

A while ago, my dear friend Gina gave me some beautiful paper pads. The papers are so pretty and I already used a few on other projects and I knew I wanted to use one set in particular for this one. It is called Madeline by Prima Marketing. I just love the beautiful flower patterns and the great tags that match. I used one of my new images called Lotus goes shopping. I used the version with long hair; it also come with a short hair version. I added a little bit of lace and a whole lot of pink pearls to make it as girly girly as possible.

The challenge starts today and ends at 10:00pm on March 1st. A random winner will be selected and will win a $10 gift certificate from Guylou's Online Store and will have the opportunity to be a Guest Designer on one of our upcoming challenges.

Please take a moment to go see what my fellow DT members and our Guest Designer, Claire, did for this challenge at Guylou's Inimitability.
