Pretty (for) a Princess

Ah, to be a princess. Did anyone else see that the Crown Princess of Sweden just married her personal trainer?! Really?! I guess times have changed. Which is good - let's face it, to be a princess back in the day was to be a pawn. Women's rights have extended themselves to royalty, and a princess can choose a common Prince Charming with a tight set of abs (and glutes!)

So, it's not surprising that a few challenges have popped up that would go with a princess theme. Here's my offering:

This goes with several challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Pretty as a princess
The Pink Elephant - Pink and Black (I soooo want a pink Ella stamp! Too cute!)
Sketchy Thursday - Well, a sketch.
Caardvarks - Embossing
Bunny Zoe - Nice and Girly (Hey! It's a new challenge blog!)
Bee Crafty - Pink and Girly

The crown is a digital image from Lettering Delights. The letters are Cuttlebug. There is an acetate frame underneath the crown by Colorbok. (It looks funny in the first picture thanks to the flash.) The embossing folder is a QuicKutz,and the CS is Bazzill.

So, this one's for my niece, Carlie, who is our family's princess. She plays her role well.

Here's Carlie getting her way:                                      and  not:

Truth, she's a lot of fun - very worldly, and just a hoot. Takes forever getting dressed for preschool. She's wicked smart, too, and that should make for a very interesting combo. down the road!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope the rest of your week is fit for a queen!
