Pool Party/Barbeque...


Oh my gosh! I have been busy all day crafting and I am so happy to come up with another new creation for today. I am entering it in the following challenges:
I used some papers from my stash and also created my own paper (red stripes) using Adobe Fireworks CS4. I used the apron template provided by Just Us Girls. I used dark blue cardstock for my base and my red stripe paper next. I had some denim fabric paper that I added as my pocket and stitched it with a zig zag stitch. My digital image is from Michelle Perkett called Penelope. I colored her using Adobe Fireworks. I added sun glasses to her face that I stamped and scanned in to my computer. I colored them with Copics. A sentiment, some glitter, fabric flowers with metal buttons, rick rack, an invitation insert (made in MS Word) and some ribbon completed my creation. Ok... what do you think?
