{ Follow your dreams }

The story of this dress is a dramatic one!!
It took me ages to make the dress my girl wears on that photo: I altered the pattern and took ages to make it. It was perfect. Blandine wore it once and then I washed it. Tragically, the washing machine "ate" it! it was an old machine and the dress got destroyed in it!

Would you believe me if I say we both cried??! true story!
I made this layout because I want my girl to remember that even though we lost this dress, I hope she will remember how beautiful she was in it, and how much love I put in making this dress for her! 
I also want her to know that her beauty does not depend on what she wears but on what she is inside.

Une nouvelle page avec le kit de Mars de Hip Kit Club. J'adore ce kit si féminin. Tout à fait mon style!
Une page à propos de cette robe faite pour Blandine l'été dernier, à l'histoire tragique: dévorée par la machine à laver! 

I used March Hip Kit Club kit for this page. 
Again, lot's of Crate Paper papers and embellies. 
I added some stiching that you don't really see on the full layout. 

I painted some of the flowers with my Gelatos and fussy cut some of them to cluster to the side of the photo.

J'ai utilisé mes Gelatos pour ajouter de la couleur sur les fleurs de ce papier Crate Paper. J'en ai aussi découpées certaines pour les ajouter au bord de ma page. 

Then I stitched some of the flowers.

J'ai ensuite cousu le papier calque aux fleurs en suivant les lignes des tiges. 
Pour ajouter de la dimension, j'ai ajouter du scotch 3D sous certains autocollants. 

I mounted some of the stickers and journaling strips on 3D adhesive to add dimension:

Now this dress will never be forgotten! And I am happy with this layout. That black and white frame really has my heart!

What are you creating this week? Are you inspired by spring?
I wish you a great week.

  1. Quelle merveille, tous ces petits détails qui accrochent l'oeil ♥

  2. je suis toujours aussi fan de ton scrap, cette page est une merveille!

  3. Oh No Sophie! Not that beautiful dress. So much care and thought and careful sewing. You must be so sad... but lovely to see it preserved here. I've been wondering what to do with the dresses that I've sewn for Missy, which are outgrown, because I can't store them forever. Perhaps I should do something similar.

  4. Oh, I would have cried too!
    The page is perfect - love the colors and it looks like a movie poster, thanks to the pink alphabet and clean look, at least for me it looks like a poster and your girl - the main character:)

  5. beautiful layout! im so sorry about the dress, though - must have been devastating to see something you worked so hard on and put so much love into just ruined. im glad you got a good photo, though!!!

  6. This one is just stunning. The colors, simplicity, mix of bold with feminine details is superb! So well done. I'm so glad you're back to scrapbooking. Your pages are truly inspiring
