Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop! & Scrappy Saturday Challenge #60!

Hello everyone and thanks for "hopping" by!  The photo below is the inspiration given to us this month for the June blog hop.



Upon seeing this my mind went to little girls playing dress up at a princess themed birthday party!! Can't you just picture a group of tiny girls giggling as they dance and twirl in their fluffy, billowy skirts made of layer upon layer of tulle while waving their magic wands in the air. Little sparkling crowns perched atop their precious heads. Those happy little faces with cupcake frosting gracing the corners of their mouths. Sounds like a dreamy wonderland to me! So here is my take on that thought.....


I used 3 stamps from the PTI tiny treast: birthday set as my focal images. They're stamped in a chestnut brown chalk ink then colored with colored pencils.  I curved the sentiment from this set onto my acrylic block before stamping. I used several of PTI's dies on the card...Take Three, Beautiful Bloom II, Medium Scalloped Border & Love Lives Here Collection. The pretty papers area all from the Webster's Pages - Lullaby Lane. A bit of stitching,  tiny pom pom trim and a button from my stash complete the picture. 

I'm also entering this in the Wee Memories Challenge.  It will be my first entry with them...how exciting!!! Their theme is PARTYTIME! I think this will work...how about you?

                                 I look forward to visiting all of the other blogs today! ~ Lisa
