Pretty Little Girls All Dressed Up
It's been a while since I've played the Nana card but when I saw this Tilda with Rose that Summer sent me, I knew I couldn't keep quiet much longer. It's hard to believe that my Allie is 4 1/2 months old! Here's a picture of her and my daughter Tiffany. I may be biased but I think she's just precious! I'll be posting a picture of Emma, but I want to get her momma's permission first. Way too cute both of my babies are.
I can see both of my granddaughters in this cute Tilda. Both will be wide eyed with wonder and love flowers and getting all dressed up. I can't wait for the time when I have both of them together and get them all dressed up to go see the Nutcracker Ballet at Christmas time. Oh, the velvet and satin that will be going on around the house then! When I saw this Tilda, this is how I envisioned her, all dressed up over the holidays and ready to go someplace special at this glorious time of the year. I colored her with my copics and Prisma markers, used my nestabilities and devine swirl cuttlebug background folder and sprayed it with Glimmer Mist. The designer paper is from KI Memories and the ribbon is from Offray. And the dew drops came from some great blog candy. I adore her, just like I adore my grandbabies!
Tiff and Chris had a beautiful wedding to go to for two of their best friends. Of course Allie had to be all dressed up. Tiff found the cutest little dress, all satiny and girly like a baby's first dress up should be. As you can tell, Allie is very healthy and loves to eat but a little while into the wedding, she started crying and throwing a fit, wouldn't take a bottle, which was unusual, and was feverish and just miserable. She was more upset than usual so Tiff decided to take her to the ER and come to find out, the baby was allergic to the fabric of the dress! Tiffany was crushed and thought Allie's days of being all dolled up were over. I told Tiffany to wash the dress in Dreft and let it air dry and to try it again I'd bet it's the sizing they use to make it stand out. And if she's still bothered by the dress, Nana will just have to pull out her sewing machine and work her magic for the baby!
So for Allie and Emma, Tilda with the Rose is for you. I can just see Allie and Emma looking like this in a couple of years, all dressed up running around with no shoes on and their sweet hair pulled back in a pony tail. And if they're anything like their mothers or Auntie Cole, it's hard telling where that rose came from! It could be the neighbor's prized beauty! Thanks for looking and for letting me share a bit of my family with you. They're precious to me.
