Old Fashioned Girl

Hello all you lovely crafters I didn't get round to finishes my creation last night as my daughter decided to load my washer again & spent all night lovely bless her!!
Anyway I've managed to finish it this afternoon so thought I would pop it on.
Over at PFP this week the lovely Sue C has chosen the theme of 'Vintage/Shabby Chic' & over at I Love Promarkers they have the theme of 'Pearls & Swirls'.
Here is my creation of both combined........

This is another digi image from Secret Crafter this is 'Old Fashioned Girl' which I thought went well with the Vintage theme.

Here she is close-up & she is coloured with Promarkers.
I am trying to keep this post short as there is a few pics.
Here is the inside.....

I love these candle boxes, in this I put Vanilla 1s in so it smells beautiful lol. I made this for my step-mum for her birthday as a little treat, we are paying for her to have her hair done she is wanting it permed again so then when she first has it done my lads say she looks like a Poodle lol....arnt they lovely lol. The patterned flowery paper on this is from my stash, I originally brought it over 2 years ago some1 on Ebay was selling about 30 sheets of A4 sheets & at the time we were putting together a Victorian Dolls House for Natalie so I thought this would make lovely vintage wallpaper......I never used it tho as I saw some nicer stuff a few weeks later in a shop lol. Its come in handy eventually tho lol......actually I had forgot I even had it!!

YAYYYY....sorry peeps I got excited this pic has took me nearly 25 minutes to upload.....bloggie is doin my heed in the darn thing!!! The brass corners & all the pearls are from my stash. The ribbon is from Bunny Zoe's. Everything has had their edges inked with 'Vintage Photo' distress ink.

This is the pocket on the inside which also stores the tag for you to write on.
The beigi paper is Prima 'Annalee' & is from Crafty Emma's Store, she has a sale on at the mo you can get 10% off everything in her store. The sentiment is from WOJ. The button is from Hobby House.

Last piccie now just to try show some of the dimension. The flowers are from Wild Orchid except the large 30mm brown curly mulberry 1 that is from Crafty Emma's & the flowers are all topped with a bit of Diamond Stickles.
I think that is it from me peeps, I'm off to link up now.
