Today I would like to share with you my little project for the hop!
Since I'm a literal thinker, I decided I wanted to create a birthday cake!  So, being the over-achiever that I am, I started looking at my svg cuts files, and found a slice of cake!  I thought that that would be perfect!  Especially since it comes w/ a candle!!!!  Bonus!

The paper that I used for the cake is plain white cardstock, and the decorative paper for the frosting and candle and flame are from Authentique's Grace 8"x8" pad.  

The girl is actually a cross between Prima's Lorrena and Swing Dress Doll.  I used the head of Lorrena and the body of the Swing Dress Doll.  I was going after the Marilyn Monroe look.  What do you think?  Did I achieve it?  

I colored her and the dress w/ Prismacolor Watercolor pencils and turpentine.



























Have a great time hopping!

  26. Wow the Marilyn Monroe look works in my eyes. I imagine if it were brought to life how the material would feel and the sweep of it against the cake being careful not to get the delicious cakes ingredients on the dress of course.
