Barbie Jeep

Larissa was gifted this Barbie Jeep from one of Jason’s coworkers who had daughters that outgrew it. She just loves it. It has a little stereo in it that plays little Barbie tunes and she drives it all over the yard, waving to us like she’s the Queen.

I had a lot of fun making this layout. I was inspired to create it when I was dismantling some old kits and came across some Bella Blvd goodies and huge page of fun and PINK supplies. To get the background, I used a piece Martha Stewart lace cardstock as a template and sprayed Glimmer Mist over it. I use transparencies to create layers. It was bit of a different use for transparencies than I a normally use. I have a new little detail that I am adding to my page.... from now on, all my buttons will have thread in them! I used to never thread them but then I did it for a recent sewing layout and I loved the extra little touch it added. Of course, then Cindy said she can't stand when buttons aren't threaded so that just convinced me it is the right thing to do!! My other new favourite thing is Ranger Liquid Pearls. I love to use them to accent fussy cuts, edges, flowers...just about anything that you would use Stickles on. I'm going to have to hunt down more of these little precious bottles becuase I know that I will be going through a lot of them!

Sorry forgot a detail :)

So glad to hear about the buttons! Naked buttons bother me to no end...it's all in the details you know!
An old tip is to take a piece of floss and thread your button, tie and then thread another and tie...Now you have a string of buttons just ready to trim off and use, you can have the knot showing or not. :)
TFS your work is gorgeous as always!
