"something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue..”

I'm entering this into the By the cute and girly challenge which is for "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue..”. The theme in my newly decorated room is blue and yellow. This frame is from Laura Ashley and I have had it since 2006 - decided to put a picture into it to match the frame and the room. I created the scene myself using my "new" My Craft Studio programme. I am so thrilled with this CDrom and I have only opened the "ladies" cd so far. Of course what hooked me is the dress form, and so it features on the first thing I have done. I loved picking all the little elements and resizing and recolouring them. I borrowed the idea from interior design that is around at the moment.
After I printed it out I daubed some yellow and blue inks over to lessen the starkness of the white card background.

I love what you've done to create the picture and I can see why you were drawn to the dress form, that's very pretty.
