Don't We all Want Something Pretty Sometimes?

So I am not really a girlie-girl, finding myself very happy in a baseball cap and sweats! But I do appreciate pretty things. That appreciation is necessary because I have a diva living under my roof! Ella is the ultimate girlie-girl! She loves different shoes, makes comments on people's accessories, and adores sparkle on her clothes. So, when it came to altering this Prima pail, it was a no-brainer. I needed to do something pretty! I chose Urban Prairie from Basic Grey because it sooo matches her room! (I may not be a girlie-girl, but I do like things to coordinate!) I knew I wanted to turn this pail into a holder for Ella's ribbons, hair bows, and tights. I found the, "That's What Little Girls Are Made Of" poem, online and took the one verse that fit! I typed it out, used the BG diecut to create the shape and went from there! I had to call it the "Pretties" pail, just because I couldn't resist. Layered some beautiful paper and Prima flowers, and I was done!

I think Ella will appreciate it in all her Diva-glory! (And she is only 2 1/2, what will I do when she is 16)!


  1. LOL Stacey, this sounds a little like my post yesterday. I am not a girly-girl either but I do live with one. Love the altered bucket. So very pretty!

  2. oh my goodness Stacey, this is soooo pretty!

  3. Oh you have way to much time on your hands to do this and scrapping. But your right she will love this! Give my Nephew and Niece a BIG KISS from Auntie Danni.

  4. Oh, that's so cute Stacey! Just adorable! I never get to make such things, LOL!

  5. That is just beautiful! I love the girlie colors! I'm not a girlie-girl either, but for some reason it comes out in me in scrapbooking (and I don't even have a girl to scrapbook! lol).

    PS--I emailed my layout, did you get it?

  6. This is such a great idea! So sweet. Maybe I can do something like this. :)


Thank you for visiting my blog! Have a fabulous day!
