A Boozy Maid Service ..............................

I told you all I was heading for a bottle and although most of you probably thought I was going to drink it all, nope I went to create a fashion outfit for it and then Matt came to play with me too.
The idea behind this came from the challenge over at A Vintage Affair, and as I love the Paris Nights papers so much I was inspired to create a bottle dress and hat for a maid in Paris. This contained several layers all distressed with vintage photo by Tim Holtz, liquid pearls used to frame the nestie cut sentiment which is a MSE one and the flowers are from Wild Orchid.  The lace is from a local department store.

So warning this post is photo heavy and written as if you are at a Paris fashion show.
The bottles ensemble is created from gorgeous linen feel paper and edged with a beautiful MS doily punch, the trim is made from a divine lace in cream tones.  The maids bib is made from spotty material with more lace adorning the edges and this is also tied at the rear.  The apron is made from a lovely linear material and edged to perfection.
In keeping with the maid theme the bottle top is made from the same linen effect material with a lovely lace accompaniment and matching lemon ribbon
Please excuse the fingers, but it was so hard to photograph the top and I really wanted to show off the image.

Well think that will be me for the day, as I have some ironing to do :(

I am entering this creation into the following challenges

A Vintage Affair - Bottle Cover
Mojo Monday - with this sketch that just perfectly tipped upside down to create the apron - thanks ladies
Shabby Tea Room - Something old, the sentiment and Something new those delish Paris Nights papers
One Stop Craft - Main Sentiment
Crafty Emma's Store - Anything Goes
Sweet Stampin - Distressed Birthdays

Think that is about it for me for today, other than to say thank you to all those lovely visitors that have recently left me such nice comments, I really do appreciate them

Happy Crafting to you all
