Celebrate Play Time: Layout for Orange Paperie and Bird is the Word


































Yesterday I blogged about wanting that dress. The one in the photo! Saw it at the Renaissance Fair in Sterling a couple of weeks back. Might pick a different color though...

I think it's cool how many people wandering around the fair were DRESSED UP! It wasn't a very hot day, but in years past it has been very hot and you still see the amazing costumes. Of course the people working AT the fair are always dressed nicely or very poorly depending on their role! The beggars & street people really do fit the part! Hot Nuts anyone? The begger is giving the poor lassy selling nuts a very hard time to our amusement.


Of course all that makes me stomp my foot and say I WANNA DRESS UP! ;-)

So, made a page to CELEBRATE my jealousy! It happens to be the word over at Bird is the Word this month, so playing along with their challenge.



Used the sketch as I fell quite in love with that scallop. Made my own by tracing a doily and fussing cutting around the edges. Can see a smidge of it here and my flower cluster which I flipped to the other side.


Also playing along with Orange Paperie & Co as well who is having a chipboard and flower challenge. Both are up my alley, but I am a bit light on the chipboard end of things right yet. Had to settle for a big chippy button tucked under the flowers. 


























Here is a side view of my page. I had to take the photo on a board today due to the rain! 

Happy Hump Day!
