Runway Inspired Challenge #27

Hello Gorgeous! 
 Our first Runway Inspired Challenge for 2013 is here!
I absolutely love the clean and crisp look of this lovely dress. It's perfectly refreshing for the New Year! I had some fun with the layered stamping using Delicate Leaf Clusters (Hero Arts) and sentiment from Fresh Bloom (Neat and Tangled).
hello, beautiful
Come join the fun with us and link up your project to Runway Inspired Challenge.
 ~Aga~ Angeline~Jennifer~ Laura~ Nina
~ Pamela ~Tasnim ~Wida
 Please check out the guest designer (Julie Ebersole) and my team mates' work as they will knock your socks off!

I am catching up on my sleep and e-mails from my big trip to Spain and Italy. It sure is great to be home in my own comfy bed :)
Here is a little fun video that my children made during cruise. Apparently the shower room on the ship provided the perfect stage for this Star Trek-inspired video! Do watch out for David's very own sound effect at the end of video! Hope this makes you smile!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
