"Sugar & Spice" & Everything Nice...

...that's what little girls are made of. :) One of the hottest lines that came out this Spring is Crate Paper's Emma's Shoppe. I don't have any little girls of my own, but as soon as it was unveiled in early Spring, I knew it was a must have for me! I love creating with such sweet, girlie, vintage imagery. Not to mention that it is filled with lots of RED, PINK & AQUA!

I have a large stash of old windows and occasionally I come accross an unusual one. When I found this one in my piles and piles of windows, I knew this would be a perfect fit with Emma's Shoppe. The subtle buttercream paint on the window pane ties in perfectly with the yellows in the paper. How fun it was to create and play with the colors & design just so. Totally perfect in a little girl's room don't you think?

As many of you know, I was recently appointed to be on the Paper Issues Creative Team. Last week they revealed the newest theme, "Life Is Sweet." What better project could I share for this theme than "Sugar & Spice!" I hope you all will share any projects that you have that play along with the "Life Is Sweet" theme over at the Paper Issues Blog! You might just have your spectacular project featured!

TGIF! Have a great weekend!
Amy
