Believe 31

Happy Halloween to all those who celebrate! Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo that I shared a few weeks ago of Meredith all dressed up in her Halloween costume as a Woodland Tree Fairy. She took part in a costume contest and took third place :)
Here she is in full color :) She made up her hair but needed my help painting nearly her entire body green. She looked like Shrek's daughter ;) Today after school, we are going to do it all over again for her costume party tonight!
I think the black and white photo turned out just as pretty :)


To make this layout, I used beautiful 7 Dots Studio patterned papers. I added lots of texture using a Prima wood grain stencil, texture paste 
and 13 arts glass beads:
I embellished with flowers from my stash and various die cuts:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the sketchabilities Sketch challenge:
and for color inspiration, I joined along with the colour me...! color combination on the left:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a fun and safe weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
