Dress Up Day

OK - so my niece is 10 years old, and my sister insists on dressing her daughters up for pictures (because she is a photographer and has many play clothes, hats, feathers, etc. for the kids to play with. And just as I am writing this, my 3 year old comes down to the basement in a newly acquired Snow White gown....precious. I guess she borrowed it from her friend today. Girls are all about the dress up days. So, back to my layout, Jessica is hilarious, had to jump in with the little cousins and get dressed up for Mom's photo shoot and hold a teddy bear to boot! She actually adores Winnie the Pooh do this day and if she is anything like my friend Marisa, she will wear Pooh sweatshirts and pj's even in university. :) Love ya Marisa.

So this layout is a concoction of Graphic 45 funky papers and the contents of a Bad Girls kit. Love my Bad Girls kits, but sadly my sub came to an end. If the dollar gets better, I am re-subbing. They have THE finest kits out there.

So - as I can't make a project without ink, I used my NEW favourite ink colour LETTUCE by Adirondack to smudge all around the layout. Mmmm ink. A must have, is Ranger's Cut n' Dry Foam too! This ensures great and blended application of inks.
