Princess Aimee

I had great hopes for this layout, but the colours of the dress made my head spin when I was picking out papers for it! They were either too rich and heavy, or just looked gaudy!!! So in the end I went with this fairy paper! I wanted to create a dreamy, floaty and wishful page, not too serious page, I think it is!This Princess Belle dress is Aimee's favourite, she got it in 2006 and I think it has been worn to over 20 different parties, discos and fancy dresses!!! Any time an invite comes for a dress up party, it's "Mummy I am going to wear my Belle dress" at least I can say we got our monies worth out of it, and hasn't been worn just once or twice and then discarded for the next new one!!! Aimee has about 4 dresses in her collection, she prefers things that she can actually play with and use her imagination more, which I must admit I do prefer!!!

Anyways, I have used a whole packet of Basic Grey White Heart Swish rub-ons, once I started I couldn't stop, lol!!!

I have also gave my new Prima Journaling Stamps a try, I have used the circle journaling tag, and the swirls off of the corner stamps around the edge of the photo.

I have to say thanks to my good friend Tracey for helping me out (Ya KWIM hon, thanks so much, worked perfect).

I also went a little Stickles mad, (What's new, lol). On the original paper, the swirls going across the page, the clouds were all that were glittered!!! But I stickled the Fairy dress, shoes, crown, wings and wand!!! The row of flowers along the bottom didn't escape either!!!! Probably enter it into a bling challenge!

I used my trusty white Sakura Glaze pen to write the journaling! It reads "Aimee this Princess Belle dress is your favourite. Anytime you go to a dress up party this is the one you want to wear".

Totally beautiful, I love the stickles, it just adds that necessary little extra sparkle, I love the white flourishes and the way you have done the journalling - a page truly fit for the little princess that Aimee is XXX
