Mind Wide Open Challenge ~ All Dressed Up



The October challenge at Mind Wide Open features the image of sweet little girls and the prompt 'all dressed up.'

My interpretation is the above collage which I have entitled, 'dream.' The little girls are dreaming about being fancy ladies all dressed up.

Please visit the Mind Wide Open site after October 7th and see the wonderful work that is posted there. If you feel so inspired, you can even vote for my collage while you're there.

This collage is available at my Etsy shop.

And won't these girls be elegant ladies when they grow up. I love the frothy feel of the children as it makes such a contrast with the crisper lines of the adults they hope to become. (And I am sure they are still great friends.)

Oh my gosh, this is so incredibly sweet and lovely! Earlier this year, my girls had to dress up as little girls did 100 years ago (it was to celebrate the school's 100th birthday). Their dresses weren't quite as beautiful and frilly as yours, but this reminds me of that day. So, so, so beautiful.

I love your work so much, I have an award for you.

I like the lovely soft colour theme here. Your girls are your great models & motivation behind. I am sure you all have a completely unforgetable moment.
How old are your girls They are so cute and adorable.
Thanks, so do I:)
I will come back here for sure, Nancy.
