Super Girly Day!


Here is a girly card I made for our pre-teen neighbor and family friend with Basket Additions 3 and Spring Basket. When I drew this image I thought about some iconic things of my childhood and now that represent the stuff that little girls are made of. I had fun paper piecing the Barbie dress and locked diary with papers from the GKD Hello Sunshine pack. Now I can have all those Barbie clothes I *might* have coveted, and then some! :)

What year were YOU born? Was some of this stuff in your basket? How about your daughter, what's in hers? Would love to know! Tip: If your sweetheart is really into stuffed animals you can snip out a teddy or puppy from Basket Additions 2 or Basket Blessings to add in with all these other things. Or, if she is a bit of tomboy, mix up some of the stuff from the "boy" image in the set. That would have been me!

Or, tell me about what a girly day is to you? For me, that would be shopping with a friend, cupcakes and pedicures! Ahhh! (Cammie, come back!!)

Thanks for visiting!

Oh you did perfect!! My daughter has sooo many things in each and every basket in her room!! Try as I might to get her books in one places, shoes (skates) in another and toys in one, yep... this IS a typical basket in her room! Great job! P.S. She's a tomboy as well and her basket would NOT have been pink. LOL Good job!
