Paper Patch Crafts Challenge

Anne over at Paper Patch Crafts is having a fun challenge on her facebook fan page that I thought I would participate in.  I have really been missing the opportunities to play in my craftroom and thought this morning would be a good time to do so.  Anne's challenge was for us to create a layout that is inspired by a logo or ad of a product.  I really was stumped on this one and thought about it for a few days.  It really opened my eyes to advertising and what we take for granted when we look at the work that goes into making a product appealing to the consumer.  But, what it came down to for me was when I started having my own children and discovered that I was going to be blessed with sons and no daughters....I missed the opportunities I would have had playing with little girls and all the foo-foo stuff that I love, but of course my sons were not interested in.  So, with a grand-daughter soon arriving...what speaks GIRL any more than Barbie?  (I love Barbie)  And, here is what I came up with.

I am sure I will be buying her some cute little pink and purple polka-dot outfit to go with this page!!

Items used:
