Welcome to everyone stopping by for the Pink Paislee Blog Hop! I hope you are enjoying all of the fun and creative things you are seeing on the design team blogs. Don't forget as part of the Blog Hop to leave me a comment to this post anytime between July 9th and 11th to have your name entered for one of 12 fabulous Pink Paislee Prize Packs! Winners will be announced on the Pink Paislee blog on the 12th.
The project I want to share with you is this fun little vintage inspired decor piece. If you know me, you know that I love shabby and vintage so you can just imagine how excited I was over a line called Vintage Moon!
For this piece, I used a mix of Vintage Moon papers, Paislee Press Ons, our clear stamps, glitter, and our new Top Siders chipboard. The tree here is actually the branch on the paper with the owl.
For the quote, I used a rub-on phrase on a piece of pattern paper and trimmed it out. I adhered it with a foam square to the top of a Top Sider. I adhered the Top Side with foam squares to the top of a thin sheet of mica. I added a small rub-on bird to the mica and then adhered it to base piece with a foam square. There are lots of layers going on with this project!
The image I used is this great vintage image. To give her a dimensional look, I printed the photo on plain, smooth cardstock three times. I cut her out of each photo, two with her parasol and one without. I stamped our new butterfly stamp on a piece of shimmery vellum and adhered it to the back of the piece without the parasol. I then adhered the winged girlie to the top of the other two layers. To add color to the girlie, I dug out my craft chalks and applied a bit of subtle color.
So how about a fun freebie? If you love this little girlie as much as I do, head over to Fairy Daivs and Friends (www.fairydavis.com) and download her for free. To make it easy to find her, here is the exact spot to go to in the store: Umbrella Girl.
If you haven't already, you need to head over to the Pink Paislee blog and check out the daily sneak peeks of the two new lines being released at CHA this month.

Yesterday Emma discovered a ray of sunshine streaming in the window of my scrap room. She held out her hands and exclaimed that she could catch the sunshine and hold it in her hands. As luck would have it, I had my camera right next to me and grabbed this shot. I love that I was able to capture her moment of magic and discovery. Oh to be four years old again and to believe in catching and holding a ray of sunlight.
