There Are Still Little Princesses

Well, my sister has been posting some fabulous, beautiful creations while I've been moving.  It's been a while since I've been able to do any coloring or creating since we've sold our house and have been moving.  We have a busy six to seven months as we build our new home but I am finally unpacked into our temporary home and have a comfortable spot for my crafts.  It's not perfect, and I don't have everything unpacked, but it will allow me to post a little bit between the building chaos until all the goodies are moved into their final craft haven.

I did make an autograph book for a special little girl named Madeline (Maddie) that just went to Disney World.  Her mother works for me, and I have the pleasure of hearing about all of her antics as she grows up.  She just started kindergarten this year.  Her favorite color is pink and I felt this would be a perfect book for her to collect autographs from all the princesses that she would meet.

It was fun making this for her.  She is at the age where everything is special to her eyes.  As she presented her book to all her princesses for their signatures, she told them her mommy's boss made it "just for me".  So cute.

The book is a mini paper album from Kolo that I've had for a while.  I replaced the ribbon that was part of the album with some other ribbon from my ribbon stash.  The background paper is Beautiful Moments by Carina Gardner.  It is by Carta Bella Paper Company.  I love how the bird plays into the special moment of the day.  It definitely will be a time to remember for Maddie.

The image is "Fancy" by Krista Smith from Saturated Canary.  She is so talented and I keep buying her stamps.  I think my husband may try to figure out how to block her site.  Just kidding (but he may wish he could).  I used Copic markers to color her.  The white pearls in her hair are from a Perlen-Pen by Viva Decor and I smeared Diamond Stickles on her dress.  I cut and embossed her with spell-binder die cuts.

"A very Important Date" pocket watch is a stamp set called Greetings from Wonderland by Crafty Secrets.  I used a circle and scallop punch and put on top with a pop dot.  The rope and gem was from my stash.

I honestly can't remember where the shoes came from.  They were in my stash.  It has a beautiful set of gloves with it and a vintage sewing bust.  I love it.  The gems, pearls and flowers came from my stash also.

Below is just one of Maddie's signatures from Disney World.  This is a beautiful souvenir for Maddie to treasure for years to come.

Here is a picture of a very pretty Maddie after she was made up at the Princess Palace.  Isn't she sweet?

I am going to enter this into the following challenges:  Fairy Tales  Any But a Card Challenge Layering or Openable or Interactive  Recipe Challenge

Until next time,
