Princess and the pea

I started this layout with several challenges in mind.  We go to the Dallas Arboretum several times a year.  Last year they had a princess and the pea house.  I scooped Eloise up and put her in the princess bed.  So here is my homage to this fairy tale and I hope you like it.

I started the layout on the back side of this lovely paper by Prima Marketing.  Then it all went terribly wrong when I made an attempt to do some masking.  So I flipped the paper over used some Graphic 45 Bird Song paper as a border and this is the result. It turned out a little fussier than I planned.

There is a new kid on the block for scrape book challenges.  Scrap Around the World.  This month is there first challenge for everyone to tryout.  I hope you do.

This is there mood board and sketch.  This is my interpretation.



As you can see I used far more than three patterned papers and a rubon for the Scrap our Stash Challenge.  The other papers were scraps in my stash and I do not remember who made them.

The Scrap Africa challenge was to use chipboard.  There are several scattered around the page!

Zeus and Zoe for the mood board.
 Thank you for joining me in fairyland today!  It is always a delight to see you and welcome you into my realm.  Here's wishing you a magical day.

I will be entering this layout into the following challenges.
