Snow Days Equal Scrapbook Pages

I have really enjoyed all the snow days we've had here this week! Even though we are homeschooling I decided to follow the public school's schedule and take the week off as well. Which meant a week off for me, too! When I wasn't playing in the snow with my family, I was in my craft room letting the creativity flow without a hurry and get it done feeling. It has been a long time since I've been able to just relax and create. It was very rejuvenating. I completed 2 pages so far and hope to create a few more over the weekend.

I used the color challenge from ColourQ for inspiration. I enjoyed working with the bright summery colors.
I was worried about adding Tangerine Tango on my scrapbook page but luckily I found some old Stampin' Up! paper that had all the colors I needed (some of the stripes and the dots are orange.) Yea! I'm not sure it is Tangerine Tango exactly but, hey, it is orange.

I love the little dress form modeling the mini tutu. I even added a tiny white butterfly to match the tutu my daughter is wearing in the photos. Love it!

Speaking of dress forms, I LOVE these. Especially the polka dot one! Not sure where the photo is from, someone used it on their blog and didn't say where these can be found. I may have to do some more research and find out because I'm thinking the polka dot one would be super cute in the little blue room!
*Edited* I found out these are from Pottery Barn Teen. I couldn't find the pink polka dot one but they have a black and white polka dot one available but the cost is $199. I'd rather spend 200 bucks on something else but maybe I can figure out how make my own or find an old one to fix up.

Well, I'm headed back to the little blue room to see what I can create today because it is back to the grindstone next week.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!
