And Your Little Dog Too Pin
The body is a small Styrofoam cone with about 2 inches cut off the top. The dress is made with the Party Hat cut from Cricut's Sesame Street's Elmo's Party. The top is cut off and cut into a fringe to fold over the top of the cone. The legs are small pieces of doweling covered with Playtimes Past "Life's A Ball!". The shoes are made with pieces of foam core covered with tissue paper and gesso, painted black. The small box is from Club Scrap. The lid is inked with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and covered with Fashionista "Perfumeries". The head in the clouds box is 3" x 3" x 3" made by scoring a 9" x 9" piece of heavy cardstock at 3" and 6" covered with 5 3" x 3" blue cardstock and clouds distressed with Tea Dye Distress ink.

All About Me Layout:
This was one of my projects for Club Ruby Designers' Design Team audition last year, but still one of my favorite projects. It was the first time I was able to finally cut a piece of Graphic 45 paper (Hallowe'en in Wonderland). Everything in the layout comes from the Club Ruby Designers Halloween Wonderland Kit from October 2010.
