Fashion Statement - Hattie by Rick St. Dennis

 Hello, Crafty Peeps,

I had the wonderful pleasure of being asked to create a project as a GDT by Rick St. Dennis.  This image is a new release and I was thrilled to be asked to create the presentation project.

I love the image!  I am a big fan of hats and being a former evangelical minister, I have worn my fair share (Pictures to follow (LOL)) so I chose the title "Fashion Statement".   I truly believe that hats say so much about a "lady".  All of my hats were designed, and or chosen, to make a statement.  I have an "Audrey Hepburn" hat that would always turn heads because it created so much drama.  My Face was almost totally hidden which aroused natural human curiosity.  Everyone wanted to know, who is the lady under the hat.  I always wore it when I knew the visiting preacher was more of a fund raiser than  a true man of G-d.  I had a real need to hide my face and my eyes. :D)

The papers used on this project are from the Graphic 45 A Ladies' Diary Collection.  They seemed the most appropriate.  I used the Tim Holtz Postage Stamp Die (I plan to use this for two other Rick St. Dennis Image projects and use them as a collection) and Spellbinders' Scalloped Oval Die.   I added the boot cutout, because after all, what good is a fabulous hat without an equally fabulous pair of shoes.

Hoarded Supplies Used:  Bling Flourish (2 years old because I don't use a lot of Bling) Neenah Natural White Card Stock (8 years old.  Still working down inventory from Business)
Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary (8 months Old.  Only got up nerve to cut about a month ago)
Prima Flowers - Around Six months.  Forgot I had them.  Went scavenging for yellow flowers and there they were! 

Please visit Rick's Shop  you will enjoy his images.  They are varied, interesting and fun to work with.  Rick Also has a wonderful Blog with a fabulous design team showcasing his work!
