You know, once upon a time, I was a serious girly-girl. I've heard that I used to cry when I was forced to wear pants. This time, however, is before any of the memories I can recall. The years I can remember included dolls and Army men, Rainbow Brite and remote control cars, Jem and He-Man - you know, a complete mash up of the tomboy and the girly girl. Most times, the tomboy won. Until 10th grade, I can't remember wearing a dress outside of church or family photos! Ugh, and I could not be convinced to wear a purse or get my eyebrows done! I've changed but can still pick up worms with no problems!
This week I had to channel girly girl for the new challenge at Guylou's Inimitability. DTmate Brenda charged us to come up with girly projects which included lace and pearls. This card went in a ton of different directions before I finally got it finished (mostly because of my usual mishaps)!
My card has the beautiful Gertrude on it. I've used her before, but I like her so much because she reminds me of one of my grandmas. The lace is from Crate Paper and the sentiment is from the now-closed Layers of Color. Gertrude's necklace is made of gems sent to me by the lovely Ms. Flatback Pearl, aka Theresa; she has a birthday candy giveaway going right now that you really should check out...
Okay, I could keep going, but since my mom and are I both off for the holiday, I need to go get ready for our lunch date! I hope to see you in the challenge; you just need some project with lace and pearls on it! You have until 10 pm EST on March 1 to enter!!
