Let's Play Dress Up!

I remember when I was little, my cousins and I would get all of our crinolines (anyone remember those?), our junk jewelry, and our mom's and aunt's old shoes and play beauty pageant.  We would pile slip over slip until we could hardly walk up the steps on the back porch.  Even at 5 and 6, I was loving me some bling!

Dress Up Marci reminded of all those twirls and struts we made all over the neighborhood.  When I saw Dress Up Marci in the digi section of La-La Land Crafts, I had to snatch her up!  I simple adore these sweet Marci and Luka stamps and images.  And oh, what fun they are to color! I found out this past week that Irina, the owner of La-La Land Crafts, is going to be here in Ohio in late October and I can't wait!  Can I say road trip?!

I colored this baby with my copics and added some Diamond Glaze on the ribbon on her hat and sash around her waist.  The papers are from a calendar kit from DCWV and the pearls are from Studio G.  I added some stickles to her sunflower, shoes, and the flowers, and some distressed ink around the circle.  I love her sweet pearls!  A gal after my own heart!

Here is her sweet face close up:

I had fun decorating the inside of this cutie pie's card and decided to show both sides today!

Marci does a much better job of playing dress up than what we used to but gosh, we had fun and thought we were the most glamorous things in town.  I'm sure the neighbors had a good laugh at us!  So go treat yourself to something that made you feel special when you were little.  Keep that child in you alive!

Have a great, playful day!

Susan, she is just so cute! I love her. Definitely reminds me of playing dress up in my grandmother's attic growing up.
