Glamourous!

A friend of my daughter's recently had a murder mystery birthday party. She had asked all of her friends to dress up in clothing from a bygone era, and this is what Amelia looked like as she was headed out the door.

Shazam!!! When she walked in the room BOTH my sister in law and I had our socks blown right OFF!!! Holy COW!! Could this REALLY be my little girl???Smiley from millan.net

The most fun thing about this is that pretty much EVERYthing that she was wearing was vintage ... the dress was my mother's (from the 1950's), as were the beads; the little black gloves were from my paternal grandmother (found them in the drawer of a VERY old sewing machine while I was moving my mom last February); the hat and fur cape were my maternal grandmother's (and Amelia's namesake). How AWESOME is THAT??? She really looked amazing!! It was totally fun creating this layout using MDS. I swear I have more fun with that program than I care to admit!!
