Dress for the Tea Room ....

Hello sweet friends ...
Thanks so much for your prayers and wishes for my previous post ... sometimes life is hard but no one ever said it would be easy did they? And God doesn't give explanations ... only promises ...

I had a busy day yesterday preparing for my club ... decided we would make little albums so I cut and prepared 20 albums ... sorted lots embellishments and cut lots of papers ... It took most of the day and then I sorted my bag out ... the one I use to carry all the things to club ... I found that someone had put an open glue in there and it took me ages to tidy and clean everything ... they like to be helpful bless them ... so it was no hardship ... unfortunately due to a day of strikes here ... a lot of the members in residential homes couldn't come ... no buses to pick them up and no support workers ... but those that did come had a wonderful time and made some beautiful albums ...
I finally found some time to create a card just because ... and I see that the Shabby Tea Room have a challenge using your favourite papers and embellishments ... so I think this qualifies for that ... I adore Melissa Frances papers and thanks to Stella I have a pad of them which is now slowly diminishing ...
So here is my little creation ...


When I saw these little ballerinas ... I knew I wanted to make a dress ... like ballerinas wear ... soft and floaty ... as a child I always wanted one of these ...  I love soft materials, sparkles and lace .. I stamped the dress form from a stamp set by Crafty Secrets ... paper pieced the top using MF paper ... and made a skirt with some sequined organza ... I love to add stitching to my projects and that is there too .... even on the dress bodice 


The little rose I made from some pretty soft pink ribbon ... so there we are ... my little creation for today

Have a lovely weekend my friends 
Till soon
