I've been wanting to create this layout for some time now. I've been collecting pictures of the crazy things that Mia dresses herself with and now I have enough to make a layout. Mia just loves clothes and she won't hesitate to try on anything pretty or interesting regardless of whether it fits her or what the weather is like outside. So I spent some time yesterday pulling together a sampling of her interesting choices.
Both of these pages used Cool Carribean as the background paper. I used pieces of the Petals & Paisleys backgroundpaper throughout along with Pink Passion, Certainly Celery and Tempting Turquoise cardstock to frame the photos and the Whisper White journaling boxes. I used Polka Dots & Paisley along with Polka Dots & Petals for the stamped images on the title box, accent box, and bottom and left edges of the background paper. The inks I used were Cool Carribean, Pink Passion, Tempting Turquoise and Certainly Celery. For embellishment I added some carribean colored ric-rac left over from the Winter Mini Catalog ribbon collection. I also added lots of gingham ribbon in blue, moss, and pink (all were from Stampin' Up! except the dark pink from Michaels. As a final touch, I added some faux stitching along the edge of the long strips of patterned paper, using my paper piercer and a white gel pen.
I had so much fun making this 2-page spread, I hope you enjoy it!
