LOC Lady Marmalade

I have enjoyed doing some scrapbooking and what better place t start then with this photo of my youngest daughter.  Her dramatic look is the result some 'sister time' in the form of a makeover by her 14 year old sister - definitely a photo moment - just as well we have at least 4 cameras in the house!

This came together very quickly - as soon as I saw the colours in the photo I reached for this delightful flocked DP given to me in a RAK from my dear friend and Layers of Color artist and owner Laura.

This gorgeous Prima was a natural addition and is part of the divine Candy I won from Steph, along with the doily - I have always admired the large Prima's and now thanks to Steph I have quite a few to work with - wahoo!!  It is attached with foam tape to a Tim Holtz Grungeboard flourish that has been sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - you gotta love that stuff!!

Next I added my favourite butterfly of ALL TIME - from the Layers of Color Flutterescent Clear Art Stamps and lightly coloured it with SU Chalks, addling light touches of Kindy Glitz to give it some shimmer!

I have always been a fan of tags and love them in scrapbooking!  I added the sentiment 'A flair for the dramatic' - if you knew this girl you would add it too!  LOL! The gorgeous dove was also part of the RAK I received from Steph.

The finishing touch is the sentiment added to the sponged doily, I sponged around the edges to soften the white.  I was careful not to so too much as I love the contrast of the white doily.

This is for the following challenges:
Bee Crafty - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Something Cute - my DD of course!  LOL!
ABC Challenge - S for Scallops
Pile it On - Pile on the Layers
Oh Alice - Sparkle
Twisted Thursday - Flocking or Feathers
