Challenge Heaven

The theme challenge this month at Challenge Heaven was to scrap about yourself. I kind of cheated - well not really, this LO is about me.
I found this photo recently and had to show it to my sister. This dress was known to us as the "pretty dress". It was the most amazing dress we had ever seen and we both loved it. It even was a spinning dress!! This photo was taken at someones wedding but it soon became the "party dress".

Remember when parties used to be in the back yard, pass the parcel only had ONE prize in the middle and musical chairs had only one winner and we used to come home not winning a prize but... we got over it. These days every child needs to win a prize and there is no sense of disappointment and lolly bags have to also have a present tucked inside.

Well this dress went to those parties, and I'm not a fast runner, no hand eye coordination so yes - no extra prizes for me... but funny enough I did win the chocolate eating race at Nathan Grants party. Not much has changed there.

These days parties are held at venues with slides we only saw at the royal show and so party dresses are not appropriate... not that my little miss would wear one anyway... cant climb trees in dresses...

here is my LO dedicated to the "pretty dress." I dug down deep into my paper stash and pulled out these old BG papers, some lovely sweet vintage pretties and a gorgeous transparency butterfly...And a close up of my peonies because life wouldn't be the same without close ups...
thanks for visiting the zoo. Validate your pass by letting me know you were here.
