Playing Dress Up

"Miss Lisa, when do we get to play dress up?"  Nai Nai knew the plan, she just didn't know the day.  Grampa would take Dillon fishing and she, Jaime and I would play dress up.  It started with a mani/pedi and then she had a blast wrapping my scarfs all around her and draping herself in every necklace I could find.  She loved the hats, too.  I have quite a collection from the '80's - Princess Diana days when hats were 'in' again.  My Mother always taught me to save my accessories.  They don't take up much room and everything comes back in style.  It's been true about a lot of things but I'm still waiting on the day I can wear those hats again. :-)

Project Notes:
  • I really raided my stash on this one.  The designer paper from DCWV really did the work on this layout.  I cut out several of the flowers from an extra piece and popped one and added others.
  • This wide white ribbon is like those accessories Mother told me about.  I kept wanting to throw it out but figured sooner or late it would work somewhere.  It covers the bottom of the blue and white paper without being too busy.
  • The blue and white cardstocks were cut on the Cricut in large sheets and then trimmed down.
  • There were lots of other photos, but I really wanted to hightlight this one of Nai Nai looking in the mirror.  The other photos and journaling are in a mini-album.  It also gave me a chance to experiment in cutting thin chipboard on my Cricut.  I'll put this in a pocket page with some other photos from their visit.

Cardstock:  Bashful Blue from SU!
