Pageant Princess

Old albums have given us the answer as to why we all know Erica as a "Princess". It didn't begin with all those royal costumes she wore on oh so many Halloweens. It began when she was 19 months old and earned herself the title of princess in the 12 - 24 month age category of the Huntsville Fall Fair.

I do remember that, after her obligatory princess photo, she ran to her brother so he could drive her around and around, and around and around again, in the little white truck on the merry-go-round.

I used the Scrapmuch? October 10, 2014 sketch by Laura Whitaker. I also used the layout to participate in the "Anything Goes" Challenge  #212 by Lasting Memories.

For embellishments I used the newspaper clipping, some pearls (appropriate for a princess), a button tied with ribbon and a handmade white satin rosette to mimic the one she'd been presented with at the pageant.
Too cute !
