Mad About... Mad Men (Part 5)

 Hello! Today's Mad about Mad Men brought us to the first/oldest daughter of Don Draper. In this Kiernan (Sally Draper) interview with Katie Couric, you get an idea on Sally's outfits and style!

The following is the Vanity Fair interview about Sally Draper:
"Kiernan Shipka said we should expect a more adult side of Sally this season. “Her style is more mature, and her hair and makeup are more mature,” Shipka said. “Even as a person, and what she does is more mature. It’s a growing season for everybody but especially, I think, for Sally.” "
My take:
hugs
 With the Dandelion stamp (Hero Arts), alcohol inks, pattern paper (Knee High from Basic Grey) and SRM Stickers (sentiment and stitching), this design was actually easy to come together. I love how vibrant the alcohol inks are. I also added some Liquid Perfect Pearl droplets to create some subtle textures. 

Lastly, I got to have a taste of summer the other day. My big kids (Stephanie and David) made this yummy Blueberry-Swirl cheesecake! You can see the original raspberry recipe here (if interested).

Happy Sunday!
