Lavender and lace! Sounds very pretty and feminine doesn't it? Well, it's also the theme for challenge #50 at I LOVE PROMARKERS this week. We are sponsored by DIGI DOODLE SHOP and there is a $10 spend for our winner. This is one of my favourite digi image sites, so go take a peek.

As an aside...we all say that, but how in fact, can you have more than one favourite? It either is or it isn't, pmsl. Oh well, less of the deep and meaningful and back to the subject. :o)

The image I chose to use was 1800 Vintage Dress 3. If you like vintage ladies, there is a lovely selection HERE.

My papers were from Basic Grey 'Kioshi' and 'Capella' and the frame was cut using a Marianne doily die in my Cuttlebug. The flowers are from the fabulous selection at WILD ORCHID CRAFTS and the sentiment from Debbie's new sentiment collection at THE CRAFTY PAD STAMP DESIGNS. I'm not sure where I got my lace from, that may have been Wild Orchid too and the leaves were punched, but there's no name on my punch so haven't a clue about that either, lol and I've only just bought it too.

Also entering into the following challenges:
FAB 'N FUNKY #57 - Use a digi.
PENNY'S PAPER CRAFTY #45 - Anything goes.
THE SISTERHOOD - Anything goes.
TOP TIP TUESDAY #19 - Flowers.
CRAFT YOUR PASSION #42 - Use two patterned papers.
ONE STITCH AT A TIME #46 - As you like it.
OOH LA LA #72 - Three of a kind (3 white roses).
WILD ORCHID CRAFTS #15 - Let's get sentimental.
PHINDY'S PLACE #39 - Lace and pearls.
