A Pink Paislee Prom Dress... 56

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, April 5, 2012 @ 6:33 AM | , , ,

Hi there! I'm so excited to share with you a project that I made special for this week's Pink Paislee Spring Fling theme on the Pink Paislee blog! I would be tickled pink if you were to take a moment to come say hi :) click HERE
While I was out for a little retail therapy, I couldn't help but notice all the beautiful prom dresses on display. So many different styles to choose from: some long, some short, some simple, some frilly and elegant, etc... When I returned home and was looking at my "naked" dress form, I decided to dress her up with a simple, yet elegant Pink Paislee prom dress made using gorgeous products from the Spring Jubilee collection:
My sweetie worked his magic and made a short (less than 2 minutes) video to give you a 3D view:


 After creating a pattern, I used the pretty patterned paper accordingly: Spring Jubilee ~ Festive for the bodice and smaller skirt pieces, Spring Jubilee ~ Party for the larger skirt pieces: 
Spring Jubilee ~ Shindig for the rosettes, Spring Jubilee ~ Festive for the leaves and were cut using die templates from the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms set:
Once the dress was complete, I adorned it with a few beautiful butterflies from the Spring Jubilee ~ Chipboard Stickers pack:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have enjoyed my Spring themed project today :) For some more awesome Spring inspiration, please be sure to visit the Pink Paislee blog!
