Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge #13 - Girly Girl

Happy Thursday fans of Lil Lolita's!! I just cannot believe how fast the weeks are running by. Between work & my daughter in school & everything in between, it's chaotic to say the least!! I've been trying to make a card a day, sometimes I meet that goal and sometimes I don't. Today I did with this fabulous Lil Lolita card for this week's Lil Lolita Boutique challenge - Girly Girl! I used lots of feminine touches without using your classic girly colors like pinks & purples. I was actually surprised at myself! I finally used those fabulous Tim Holtz masking thingies I got eons ago & LOVE them - not sure I used them intirely right - gonna have to go scout out a tutorial on that! haha
I used the fabulous 30's Lylah, I just think she's adorable, plus I had a few of her colored already which was nice. I don't normally have images colored before deciding on what I'm going to do. I love how this card turned out, I just saw these scraps peeking out under a pile & gave them a little facelift so they'd be perfect.
Today is a little sad for the Lil Lolita Ladies as we're saying farewell to 3 members that have just been amazing to work with & get to know: Patricia, Eulanda & Nicole have all decided it was time to step down as our initial contract had ended. So, we've all wished them good luck & know we will continue to stalk, er, I mean, see them around blogland!! They will definately be missed. BUT, that means we currently have a DT call so if you LOVE playing with your Lil Lolita's and have at least 4 of your own, please see THIS POST for all the details and to submit your name for consideration. I just love this group & we're excited to welcome some fresh faces!
