Crate Paper - Paper Doll goodies...

Back in February I was lucky enough to win a prize in a comp on the Crate Paper Blog...and this week my new goodies arrived on my doorstep! Yippee!!!! I opened up my package to find the entire Paper Doll collection...

This range is seriously cute! Perfect for pages for Madison! So last night I finally got to sit down and have a play and came up with this...
I also threw in a little American Crafts using some thickers and Dear Lizzy chipboard pieces.
Anyway, since this is all I have to share in this post I thought I'd include a few close-up pics...
I overlapped the larger thickers for a little dimension...

I cut the little girls out of one of the papers and layered them onto a journalling spot and added a cut-out flower behind it... and the Dear Lizzy chipboard hearts (love them!).
I used a couple of the chipboard flowers and added chipboard centres for dimension, another journalling spot and Dear Lizzy heart...
To create the swirly lines you can see I used a new Dear Lizzy stamp and Versamark ink to stamp the image onto the cardstock, then hand stitched over the top to add a little texture...Madi got a lovely surprise when she saw this layout this morning...she loves her friend Georgia SO much! :)
I think I'll be doing a lot more with Paper Doll in the coming weeks...LOVE it!
Well...I've gotta run... but have a great weekend! Thanks so much for dropping by! :)
