Chic Boutique ...

Our days are busy, busy, busy!  Work, swimming, family, volleyball, fishing and more ... I just don't know how we are going to fit school back into our schedule!

This project was whipped up in a jiffy ... thanks to the adorable dress form in our Chic Boutique stamp set.  Paper-pieced from coordinating papers makes me feel like doing a little window shopping.  The trees along the bottom give you the sense of a "outdoor boulevard" ... Haussmann Boulevard perhaps?  Wouldn't that be wonderful?!

My chipboard frame is from our Mix and Match collection.  I painted it blue and added some bling with our Chunky Essentials glitter.  The buttons are from my "drawers and bins" ... as well as the crystal pins.    Along with the gorgeous peach colored flower, the pearls add dimension.  A sweet sentiment in the lower right says all the right words. I haven't used rub-ons in years and I'm so glad they are making a come back ... in a big way!

Thanks for visiting with me today.  I hope you take the time to visit these challenge blogs ... they will truely inspire you to create your own works of art ...

Simon Says Stamp suggests "dots" ... so cute!
Delightful Sketches has a recipe "2 papers, 3 embellishments, outdoors" ... I think I over-achieved on the embellishments!
Dutch Dare says ... anything goes!
