I saw this cute little vintage girl and just knew I wanted to color her!!! She is from Pamela at All of her vintage images are free to download and they are soooooo awesome! Vintage has become my new obsession.

This is for the ScrapbookPlace blog ( for January - tearing. The object of the blog is to get you out of your crafting block and do something a little different. When I started paper crafting, tearing was my ultimate fave! It got put aside along the way but it's baaaaack!

This image reminds me of a dress I had when I was younger. It was a Winnie the Pooh dress sorta made the same way. My mom would even put the knee high socks with the black patent leather shoes. Can I tell you I hated that dress and hate Winnie the Pooh to this day because of it!

Here's what I used:
Sophia paper (CTMH)
Leaf/Blush cardstock (CTMH)
Image (
Victorian Velvet/Spun Sugar Tim Holtz Distressing Ink (Ranger)
"DREAM" (K&Co)
Ribbon Roses, foam pop dots, double sided adhesive (stash)
Pink Pearls (Kaiser Scrapbook)
Curved Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders)
Copics - E15 E11 W7 R20 R00 YG17 RV11 YG03 YG13 RV34

Alrighty, I'm off to work on some blog challenges. Stop by tomorrow for another creation!

Thanks for stopping by,
