It all about the Dress…

I have to say Kirsty has come up with a wonderful challenge this week over at

“All Dressed Up"
  
There are so many way you can go with this challenge.
Your projects need to have a dress or a dress form on it..

I am definitely not the dress up type of gal..  
I am totally a jeans and t-shirt kinda gal..   
 I can almost guarantee you will not see me in a dress and heels.... 
Maybe if I have a wedding to go to or something like that..

Can you picture her in Jeans and a t-shirt..  I sure can’t..

This project started off in a whole different direction and 
this is what I ended up with. 
I started to make a card and ended up with a ATC..

Has that ever happened to you?

I had a lot of fun making this. 
And I just love this image from the Graphic Fairy.



 After I cut this image out I glued it onto my ATC which was cover in
Paper from K & Co..    And then I added all kinds of sparkles.
You know a girl has to accessories..

If you want to play along with us this week you can get all the
details of this challenge CCCB!
Or you should at least pop over and see 
what all the other ladies have come up with..
I am sure you will love it..

I don't know if you know this but I do have another blog.
I had started that blog to put all my photos from a challenge 
I was doing called 365 days.. 
A photo a day for a year.. 
Well The great news is that I finished..
Here are some collages I made to celebrate my making it to the end.. 

 

These are just a few of my shots from 365 days!


Thanks sooooo much my sweet friends for stopping by and leaving such kind comments
I really do appreciate it so much.

Hugs, Linda

I wore a dress to a wedding last month. It's the first time I have worn a dress in about 5 years! Now I should be good for another 5 years. ;)

What a fab card, Linda! Love, love the vintage look. That image from the Graphics Fairy is awesome. I adore all the sparkle and shine you added. Super fun sentiment, too.
And no, I can't picture her in jeans and a tee. ;) That's all I want to wear, though.
Love your photo collages. Good for you for sticking with that project. I tried a couple of years ago to do that, but gave up after about 4 months. :)

Gorgeous ATC, Linda! Yep, I'm a jeans-and-T-shirt kind of gal, too. But I would love to be a "let me just throw on this little dress and look fabulous at the grocery store" kind of gal, LOL!

Linda, I adore the added glitter and bling on your card. I would never think to do that, and it's a wonderful technique. You added just enough and in all the right places. Brilliant idea :)

Colleen Dietrich said...

You really are a fab photographer, Linda. I love your pix. And yes, I know what you mean about a card/other creation taking on a life of its own, and deciding it wants to be something else! This is neat, in a Stampington & Co. kind of way. Thanks for reminding me about the Graphics Fairy!

Cynthia Schelzig said...
