About this scrapbook page:
When I was cleaning my bookshelves, I also stumbled upon some old McCall's dress patterns and decided that these girls needed to have an updated adventure. It's exhausting having to stay on the cover of a dress pattern for so many years, without any break for tea and cupcakes. Enjoy your party, lovely girls!
Design credits:
I used a variety of kits by Kitten Chen (Kitty Designs), available at Oscraps. I've come to adore her work. Also used a few elements by Lily Designs. Page No. 2 is the closeup version of the layout, before background elements. And Page 3 is my scan of the dress pattern cover. I think these girls are probably straight out of the 1960's. Enlarge view for a better look at the details.
