Easter Dresses

Supplies : Porcelien Paper by Basic Grey; Cardstock, Inks, and Discovery Paper by CTMH; Retro Backgrounds stamp and Buttons by Papertrey Ink; Flowers by Prima; Felt ribbon by We R Memory Keepers; Pearls by Kaiser; Blossom Brad by Imaginescence; Sequin Ribbon by My Minds Eye; Remarks letters by American Crafts; Embroidery Floss

Sometimes I have such a hard time with pretty paper like this but not this time! I started with the Basic Grey paper and a sketch I jotted down from a layout I'd seen a couple weeks ago online. I didn't have any green pattern paper that went with the basic grey so I created some with garden green cardstock, white ink, and Papertrey's Retro backgrounds stamp set. I didn't want to cover up too much of that gorgeous paper and this layout was perfect for letting both the pictures and paper really show off. Both pictures are 4" x 6" and the pink strip paper is 1.5" x 6". You'll see how it pulls together the second page in a sec here.


Here is the right side of the layout. These smaller photos are 3.75" x 3.75". The bottom paper strip is an easy 1" x 11.25" and the top is 1.25" x 11.25" to make the 6 inch height the photos have on the left side. So pretty! I love these dresses too. Audrey has outgrown that cute rainbow plaid but Cait still fits in that pretty pink and green dress even now. I remember how funny they were that day, dancing while I was trying to take pictures. Caitlyn started it, doing a kind of luau dance and soon Audrey followed. I got them to hold hands for few seconds so I could snap a few sweet shots of them, but they didn't care much for posing more than that on that day. Anyway, thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous Friday!
