Moving Along With The Times 'Girly Girly BUT Prim & Proper' Challenge

Good morning everyone, it is lovely to have you here. 

I am all excited as my new Silhouette Cameo should arrive today, I am so looking forward to being able to die cut what I want again and have been learning through you tube how to print and cut images too.

Today see's the start of a new challenge at Moving Along With The Times and Judith set us the challenge of Girly Girly BUT Prim and Proper. I just don't have any really elegant images and was stuck until I spoke to Shell and we came up with this image, sorry Judith it was the best I could do. Shell is not feeling her best at the moment so I am sending her huge cyber hugs.

I used Whiif of Joy's Willow Dressing Up and coloured her all pink and girly but gave her a different hair colour to normal and am not sure if I like it or not lol. I used my new Prima Rochelle papers and I placed a this feather I found in my stash behind my image and added this big flower that has also been in my stash forever!
