Teen Queen


Tonight I'm meeting my BFF and her daughter Hayley for our annual birthday shopping trip. For the past 5 years "Aunt" Donna has allowed Hayley to choose her own outfit and we have some fun while she tries on all sorts of things and models for us. Then it's girls night out for dinner. WooHoo! This year Hayley turns 13 (going on 30), so she's FINALLY a real teenager. I just finished her card. She's always been a "pink girl" and loves her plaids (a la Juicy Couture). This shaped front card is a combo of DonJuan, George and Happily Ever After.
Lots of layers and dimension. I've started to make my own pop layers that I can cut in strips or any size I want by running 1/16th" foam through my Xyron. Thank you Lillie. I still often buy the white and black in 1/8th" but now I can have the thin ones in any color I want (almost). The crown was also run through the Xyron right side down and glittered with Doodlebug Sugar Coating. I used lots of adhesive beads and pearls too.
Here's the inside printed from my computer on hearts that match the front so they won't show from the outside.
Here's another of my Handmade personalized printed stamps from The Cutting Cafe. I'm so happy to finally have something pretty for the back of my cards. I added the tiny hearts from a $1.00 punch from M's. Well I better get going and finish the envie. xxD

  10. Donna how adorable. I'm sure she will love the card as much as the shopping trip! When my boys were that age, I would have sooner taken a beating then to take them shopping, I guess that is the difference between boys and girls!
