Child's Play


I don't know about you, but when I was young I spent hours on my swing. I can remember waking up before anyone else and going out and swinging. When I saw this digital download at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps I had to get it. I used papers from PTI including her paper-pieced dress. I used my oval Just Rite stamper for the sentiment and decorated scalloped edge and sponged it with River Rock. I attached some half-pearls and a few buttons next to the Nestie Lables One die cut and I liked it - simple, but it sure reminded me of those fun days. Yesterday I learned of a vendor called Stampscapes after looking at Scenes by Sandy ( thank you to Jenny Gropp for mentioning her in yesterday's post) and now I'm off in orbit. OMG, how incredible! It's a whole different dimension, but I'm aching to try her techniques. Hope your week is going well. See you again soon and thanks for stopping by.

Karen this is absolutely beautiful. Love the paper pieced dress and the wonderful details (like the greenery and buttons). I too use to love to swing. I completely wore out the swing set in my backyard when I was little!

Sweet colors and card design for this darling image! The sentiment seems very appropriate as a swing is the perfect place to dream when you're young and have your whole future ahead of you. Been there!

That paper-pieced dress looks so cool and summerlike. The perfect swinging outfit.

Nicely done. The colors look great.
