Pink Saturday Garland

This Pink Saturday was inspired by Debbie at Ribbonwood Cottage and her January 8, post. I fell in love with her baby girl dress garland so I decided to make one for my granddaughter, Lillian. You can see each dress as you scroll down...each dress has a heart and a letter from Lillian's name. I guess I can also use this garland for Valentine's Day because of the hearts! I designed each dress using different patterns that I made then cut scrapbook paper in the form of each pattern. I embellished with ribbon, buttons, lace and flowers to give each dress more punch! The only thing that I have left to do is to paint and decorate the clothespins that hold the dresses. I had leftover doll dress hangers so I used them as well. Instead of a traditional clothesline, I'm using a pretty piece of lace trim. I couldn't take a photo of the hanging garland because my camera battery died right before I tried to take the photo and I didn't want to wait for it to recharge. Click on each photo to enlarge to see the detail.
Enjoy Lillian's name garland and visit other Pink Saturday participants.
