The Girl Has Got Style **Swirlydoos**

Happy Hump Day!!!! Yippee mid week finally, I am always looking forward to the weekend and some scrapping fun!!! For this layout I used my Swirlydoos Cabaret Kit! It is loaded with gorgeous goodies and lots of Prima. The layout is called “The Girl Has Got Style” and the photo is my grand daughter and her new coat. She was so cute trying it on for me when I gave it to her last month. She is starting out young, 3 years old and loves clothes already, hehe.
The first thing I did for this layout was distress the Moulin Rouge papers. I then used my new Prima masks and some Distress inks and masked lots on the top page. Next I just tacked them together and did some sewing on them. The bottom vine is a large chippy from Dusty Attic. I painted it and did some embossing on it. I used lots of flowers on this layout, both from the kit and my stash. The cute little metal key and lock are new from Prima. I used a Prima package for the butterflies, the mat behind the photo and the little piece tucked in with the flowers.
Here are the flowers on the other side of the layout, you can see some more of the new metal ones tucked in there, and you can really see the masking in the background here.
The title letters are just printed them out, inked and I added some liquid pearls to them. The little chain and gem hanging from the photo are from the new Prima collection as well.
Here are 2 side shots of the flower clusters. You can see there is so much dimension on this layout from these shots.

Well that is it for today. Thank you so much for stopping in for a peek. I have lots of more layouts on the go before my April kits arrive. EEEEK it is almost April. I hope that you all have a fantastic week, be safe and stay warm. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J

THis LO rocks! Love your masking and the stitching is wonderful. How did you do that? Did you use a template or is this done with your sewing machine?
