Betty Boop Fancy Dress

So, I'm sitting here with my hair in tight rollers and my retro soft hood dryer.  Why? I'm off to a fancy dress party beginning with the letter B (for the Birthday girl's name).  I've got a killer red retro dress and with any luck my hair and make up will resemble Betty Boop.  Unfortunately, I really don't have the body for it.  My body is more suited to ummm, a Teletubbie.

Here is the photo of someone made up like Betty Boop. And then me, work in progress.

 This is the make up artist on Youtube.  Here are the links for her.  She's done a fantastic job.

Okay.........and here I am.  I can tell you now.  I think I will look more like Heath Ledger as the joker in Batman.  Stay posted for the finished product, it is sure to make you laugh.

Well, here is the finished product with hubby the butcher.  Not quite as nice as the photo above but for little ol Casino it was okay.  I'm going to have another go at it in a month or so.  I won first prize for the dress ups.

Saturday Sketch #1, April 2012

Hi All
Here is my page for sketch #1, April 2012 (Kaisercraft).  When I first saw this paper range I fell madly in love with it.  It is so definitely me.  Red is one of my favourite colours.  So, I had to purchase the papers but really had nothing to scrap until, I remembered going to a wonderful concert while on my honeymoon in Prague. 

Here is a photo of the Prague Municipal House (Sementa Hall).  I will be scrapping the inside photos next because this building was stunning.  Felt like we had gone back in time to a fairly tale.

Mmm, forgot I had a few problems with the liquid pearls.  Must remember to use in better light.

Saturday Sketch #2 April 2012

Here is my very first sketch from the Kaisercraft Saturday sketches.  I used some of the Hunter Gatherer collection, rub-ons and stamp from the rewind set.  I used the mini letter stickers for my journalling.
I just love these banners.

I hope you enjoy my first sketch.
