Your first beauty pageant. You really wanted to participate.
I admit to being a bit surprised at first. You, my "if there is a mudhole,
I'll be in it" girl. On the other hand, you are a bit prissy and love playing dress up.
So the search for "the" dress began. You loved the beautiful dresses, and I couldn't help but laugh as you sang "I'm gonna win" each time you found a dress that you loved. Your excitement was contagious. This orange gown with the beaded bodice and skirt seemed to say "Michaela". Vibrant, feminine, and flashy describe you as well as the dress. Combined with your sparkling blue
eyes, we decided it was nothing short of perfect. Expensive? Definitely. Worth it? You bet. February '06
cardstock and mini brads - Bazzill
patterned paper - Chloe's Closet, Imagination Project
letter dies (Studio Classic) and one flower die - Quickutz
rubons - BasicGrey
Techniques: I handcut flowers from the patterned paper and die cut QK flowers. I crumpled and distressed the flowers for texture. I also added mini brads and crystals to the centers of some flowers.
