Sweet 16

 Ok, back from Jamaica and onto scrapbooking. I will have some trip pix soon to scrap,
ok LOTS of trip pix :-) 
If you know Maddie, you know she beats to her own drum, WHICH I love about her! On her 16th birthday we went shopping for her party dress..... a wedding dress for her tea party...... she did look LOVELY that day..... 
 I can't seem to get enuff of these 2 dies from Tim Holtz, the caged bird and the sewing room, even tho I don't sew, or have a bird... I have used the dies many many times! First I cut out the dress form, then I wrapped the birdcage with tulle, studded it with bling and attached it to the form.  Tied a pink bow, added some lace, and voila I have a cute dress...
 Leave it to Mr. Holtz to come up with new and exciting products every year. I thot these cards were so cute I just " had to have them" :-)
The cards come distressed with the black already on them, and I added Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick to the mix. Then I stickled the numbers and letters with Crystal. The word band says "Life is about creating yourself" a motto Maddie lives by daily!
 "You look lovely today" was stickled, and she does doesn't she? You can see the tulle layer better in this picture. 
Another view of lovely...I inked the flowers and added some bling. 
The end result :-) The buttons on the bottom are from the Sewing room die, I inked the edge and coated them with Glossy accents. I added some pearls and I have a lovely page. Hope you enjoyed :-) 
Have a happy scrappy day
