I've not coloured this princess before and I'll admit that the skirt was a bit daunting.  I think I need to try her again, but for now she's staying put.

I love this simple layout, which uses a strip of ribbon to cover the join between two backing papers, and a bow with a pearl brad to hold it on at the side.  I also love the simple method of adding a sentiment, and the flowers and pearls.  I use this layout quite a bit in different guises.

This project is to support the favourite layout challenge at As You Like It Challenge & also the new challenge at Sugar Bowl which both start today.

This is just gorgeous hun, she is so pretty. Don't apologise for your layout, classic ones can be used time and time again and still look fresh and new. Love how you have even got the ribbon around the shape on the edge! Hugs xx

You have a couple of layouts that I really adore and this is one of always looks elegant and is very adaptable so little tweaks can create a totally different look.

The bow on this one is utterly stunning, so neat and pretty :-)

That image looks like a challenge to colour and I love the soft shading you gave the dress.

Big hugs, Kat xx
