Stamp, Stamp, Stamp...

Finally found the perfect paper for this adorable Magnolia...She's from the Magnolia Pink Collection and she's called "Pink Tilda with Striped Tights". Isn't she cute? If you know me, you know I DO NOT LIKE PURPLE...but this purple is ok...Wierd...anyway, I picked out some greens and purples and went to town coloring her. I thought she looked so "rich" that I just had to make just as "rich" a layout for her. So...After lots of cutting, assembling, distressing and assembling, I was satisfied with the final outcome. Oh, and I thought I had really screwed up the patterned paper (it was originally the size of the green piece) when I had some technical problems with my sewing machine. What a mess! Anyway, I decided to STAMP the stitching instead.

Just thought I'd mention too that I'm very proud of myself...I used the supplies I already have and didn't go out to buy something else to sit in my room and wait for me to use! LOL...
