Spring 2013 has Sprung!

Well, not the seasonal one, considering the minor dumping of a few inches received Friday but this beautiful one:

I found it in my mailbox on Thursday and skimmed through it right away, while the kids worked on their homework.  Then on Saturday, I had a chance to go through it more slowly, reading articles, delighting in seeing so many first-time-published artists - congrats to you all!

In addition to my Leave Your Legacy (LYL) challenge layout (challenge to be posted on Friday, Mar 1st!), I also had another layout published - one that I completed at CropFest in Cambridge.

Supplies used:  Bazzill cardstock; Fab Scraps patterned paper; Basically Bare cardboard dressform; Martha Stewart Crafts, EK Success, McGill and Kreaxions punches; Recollections paper tape; Prima Marketing flowers and pearls; KaiserCraft pearls; Maya Road chipboard and trinket pins; Melissa Frances tulle/chiffon trim; vintage lace trim; Basic Grey letter stickers; Cherry Lynn Designs die; Silhouette Cameo and Big Shotz die cutting machines; Aquarelle font; Stampin' Up! reinker; Tsukineko ink; Ranger Industries Glossy Accents; sewing machine; unknown flower.

Wow - that's a huge supply list for one teeny little photo! Ha ha!

I knew I wanted some sort of dress form on this layout and I have several dress form cut files, but as I was at a crop, I had to improvise.

Which means shop.

The on-site store had a few packs of these adorable chipboard and cardboard dress forms in various sizes, by Basically Bare.  I covered mine with paper and decorated with the beautiful Melissa Frances trim - perfect for a skirt!  The waist trim is vintage lace that I dyed by adding a few drops from a reinker to a Ziploc baggie and smooshed it around until it was all coloured.

Here are some more detailed shots:

Journaling (under photo) reads: 
Having two sisters who were significantly older than me meant that I was constantly being dressed up, paraded about and photographed.  Must be why I love dressing up my own daughter! :)


P/S:  Don't forget about the following challenge on my blog for a chance to win:
Leave Your Legacy: What You Fear Most (deadline:  Feb 28/13)
