Good Morning!! Doesn't this image remind you of yourself or your children playing dress up? I have so many pictures of my girls and grandchildren playing dress up. Even the boys play dress up as vampires, army men, etc. She would look great on a scrapbook page as an embellishment. This cute little image is "All Grown Up" from the new release Elisabeth Bell Edition #4 for SCACD. Check out all the images in this edition they are all so cute and versatile. One of my granddaughters just turned 11 - Can't believe she is all grown up. This gift is for her. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MACKENZIE !!!

The DT was challenged this week to make a gift. I have had this little purse in my stash for awhile. I first painted it white and then covered with design paper. I added rhinestones and flowers with the addition of pearls. However, the pearls around her neck were made with VIVA DECOR WHITE PEARL PEN. These pens are so cool. I have been playing with them and figuring out new ways to use them. She is colored with Copics. The Prima flowers have been sprayed with the Tsukineko psst Spray - Sparkle. One spray does it. My camera didn't pick up the sparkle very well, but they really do. I used Smooch Ink - Gold for the clasp on her purse and then put a little Stickles on it. The bows in her hair also have a little Stickles. Maybe, if you zoom in the picture you can see the sparkles. Click on the picture and it will enlarge. I sponged around the edges of the tag with CTMH Baby Pink and then stamped some swirls with CTMH Daisy White ink. You can kinda see the swirls a little in the first image. I apologize for the pics, I couldn't seem to get my camera at the right angle.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
