Waltzingmouse Challenge #56 with CR84FN34

My goodness the weekends fly! We didn't have alot planned but were each content doing our own thing.  Not hard to guess but for me, it was stamping.  This is such a simple little sketch which I know I will use again, so kind of went all out with the new stamps on this one.  And these graphics I just adore, makes me very wistful for summer when we have a garden full of hibiscus.

This dress form I love, a very classic 50's style ball gown (think it may get another outing for another challenge VERY soon).  I wanted to use patterned paper as a background but even though my collection of pink papers is vast, none suited so went with making my own.

My initial thoughts were to hang on to this one till my daughter is a little older, but given the rate at which she is changing each day, she may get it for her birthday later in the year.
