Berry Sweet


It's the 100th Challenge at The Sweet Stop and to celebrate our theme is 
~ How Sweet ~


How much sweeter could you get than Strawberry Shortcake herself?  This is the theme my daughter Brooke has chosen for her 3rd birthday next week.

I was sooo excited when she chose Strawberry Shortcake because I still have all of my little dolls from the 80's and they are going to be used as decorations for her party.  I've been waiting...yes, a long time to pass these little cuties on and I'm so excited that she's old enough now to play with them.   The image I used is from an online coloring book (just google, there's tons) and then treated it like I would any other digital image by resizing and printing it out.   Strawberry Shortcake has had a few makeover's over the years and so I let Brooke choose which picture she wanted me to color and was secretly hoping she would chose this one.  :)  

I had a hard time photographing this one.  Her hair is actually auburn and not the same color red as the strawberry on her hat.  And the strawberries and the flowers all have a bit of Shimmerz painted on them for sparkle!  The strawberries were cut out from the DP (DCWV - Nana's Nursery) and then popped up with foam tape.  I also printed the sentiment on the strawberry using a font called Sycamore Sans.

You're gonna want to play with our sketch this week.  Korin is giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to the Sweet 'n Sassy store!!

Brilliant way you've picked up the stripes of the patterned paper in the ribbon of her hat & I like the way you've used the little strawberries as embellishment. Sound like you're going to have a lovely time together. Absolutely delightful that you've had Brooke involved too.
