Ooh Laa Laa Miss La Rose !

This is a piece I did for the Mind Wide Open challenge this month......I am trying to use all leftover/thrift store items in my work for a while. I stole my husbands grahm cracker box for the chipboard bodice...(he doesn't even ask anymore..LOL! ) and found some neglected camisoles at our local thrift for the skirt and the flower is one I made from scraps in a session with Gayle and Lucy one night.....paper flying everywhere......anyway lots of fun!

The title was inspired by my little friend Emma, Lucy's daughter......we were trying on hats and this was our posing she may correct me and tell me I have mispronounced Miss La Rose's name and if that happens you can be sure I will edit :) ........

Go visit the The Next Step if you get a's Lucy and Gayle's great new technique blog they started with Bethany..... who has a beautiful technique up this month by the way.
