PAPER DRESS SWAP

PAPER DRESS SWAP

These are the Paper Dresses that I sent to Tine in the Swap organised by Heather.

I love this little
Shabby Chic Party Dress
Sorry the pic is so bright but in reality it is quite cute. The pink is a lovely soft pink and the white top is embossed with silver. The sleeves had satin edging with glitter added. The neckline had pink glitter and a little silver flower pendant.
The Halloween style dress was harder to photograph as the the tuille/net cape kept giving off weird reflections.

I mailed Tine (from Germany) her dresses last Tuesday and she had them by Friday. Usually we all complain about the service we get from Australia Post but this time they did a great job.
When I get the dresses from Tine I will post a photo for you to see.

They look excellent! I knew they would. I have finished mine today and will post some sneak pics (loved that idea!) later today.

Have a great afternoon! I have 4 kids here today, as it is school holidays and we are crafting like crazy - but OH the mess!!!! Haha.

Hi Alison! I've been cleaning out folders in my computer all day, need to get a ton of things created..(you remember) the line up of goodies in the driveway..lol! I'm just feeling so unorganized, before I can't create, I have to eliminate the bugs, so to speak.
I had to comment, I really love your dress swap! What fun that would be! It takes a lot of patience to create such sweet little garb~

Simply gorgeous! I can't wait to visit again to see your friends dress when it arrives on your doorstep. Keep us posted~

Have a great evening!
Michelle
