Sweetie Pie!

Hi, I've had a busy couple of weeks, I've been moving house and as of this Sunday my scrap room is set up,
so this is my first layout in my new house and I wanted it to be something which I love creating and that's the dress form, they are one of my greatest loves in life.
I used the Webster's Pages Let's Celebrate range, which I also covered the Dressform C909 in.
This photo was taken of Milly when she was 4, it's hard to think she will be turning 7 next month. 



Here's a quick step by step:
1. Colour the base and the top of the dress form.




2. Cover the dress form with glue and stick down on top of the wrong side of the paper.




3. Cut around the edges, sand with file set or sand paper.



4. Make a skirt out of 15cm x 8.5cm piece of paper, border punch the bottom of the paper and fold, i have used a score pal to help with the folding but you can create it with your hands as well.



5. Glue down some tulle first then add the skirt and then some trim on top, make sure you glue it down at the back of the dress form.
6. Add a flower and lots of Kindy Glitz to bring out the bling.



Also just a quick note, this was a layout I did using the beautiful doilies for Scrapbook Creations this month, which also has our Linda as the Who's Who's Yay go Wow!
Thanks Gilly oxo
