Shabby Princess......

Good Morning!!
It is time again for another challenge over
Donalda has created a lovely sketch full of possibilites
for us to play with!  I had alot of fun playing along with it!

I have gone with girly and shabby yet again! Sorry but
I have three little girls and that means alot of little
girls birthday parties! 
I used some layers of paper and lace for the
center piece of the sketch.  Can you see I finally got
the swirl doohickey die!! I had to wait until my birthday
to use it though ~ hubby is a stickler! LOL
I had to add a crown on her to make a princess!
(Can't wait to get my new stamp with the actual crown!)

Here is a close-up of my gorgeus flowers from
Wild Orchid Crafts.  I just love the hip rosebuds.
They are the perfect size and so pretty! (The white ones)

Paper ~ Mix of Prima and Pink Paislee
inks ~ distress inks and twinkling h20's
Accessories ~ Flowers, lace and rhinestones ~ WOC
rub-ons ~ Melissa Frances, crown ~ Maya Road
buttons ~ stash, distress crackle paint ~ Tim Holtz

I want to also thank everyone for the birthday wishes! I
had a fabulous day! The girls even made me some cupcakes!

Thanks so  much for stopping by and I hope
you all have a fabulous week-end!
