Russia Honey - Baby It's Cold Outside!

First I have to wish my beautiful daughter, Nichole, and her wonderfully fabulous husband, Branden, a one day late Happy Third Anniversary!  They are so lucky to have found each other and I'm so lucky for the gift of having Branden in my family.  And my sweet little Lainie Loo is the icing on the cake!  I hope your day was as special as the two of you are!

When I saw this gorgeous image, Russia Honey, from Sassy Studio Designs, Nichole popped right into my mind!  My baby girl does love her some cold weather!  I can just see her dressed up in a classy dress like this and the hat and muff just look too cozy.  For me, well, we all know I'm a hot weather gal!  But just because I hate the cold, that doesn't mean I don't like to color the cold!

The layout I used for this beauty is the Sassy Studio Design Dare to be Sassy Thursday and I had such fun with it!  She's colored with copics and the patterned paper is from my stash and the brown is Co'oredination brown and teal that was embossed with my Cuttlebug Snowflake folder and sanded to make the teal pop (I love doing that!).  The corners are from a punch and the pearls are from Studio G.  I added some Stickles to her hat and muff and Diamond Glaze to her lips and eyes.  My Inkessentials tool was used to add some distressed ink to the sentiment.

Here's her gorgeous face:

She's just so dramatic but so classy looking!  I dressed up the insides just a little bit.

I'm also entering her in the Crafty Catz challenge.

I hope you enjoyed her and if you're somewhere where it's hot, I hope she cooled you off just a little!  Enjoy!
