Don't Mess with the Dress

Three months ago, I saw the Material Girl by Cosmo Cricket. All I could do was to sing:

"Some papers delight me, some papers thrill me, I think they're okay, but if you don't give me proper Cosmo, I just walk away.
Some papers I like, some papers I try. If they don't have ready-set-chips then I have to let them be.
... coz I'm living in a material world, and I'm a material girl! You know that we are living in a material world, and I'm a material girl!"

Ironically enough, after falling so hard for the Material Girl, I could do nothing with this line!  But thank goodness our neighbors lent the girls Barbie and the Three Musketeers.  During a "sword" fight between the girls, Second Child stopped so deliberately and yelled at her sister, "Don't Mess with the Dress!" THANK YOU!  Finally, I've got my material!  ;)
That's right baby, it's Crafting with Cosmo Week on the SRM Stickers blog. Today, two of my layouts are featured alongside of Tobi and Norma.  Wow, the SRM DT is just on fire!

Here is a list of SRM Stickers product I used to create the borders that break up the patterned papers for this layout. 
51006 Thinking of You
49007 What's Cooking'
42001 Athlete
48085 Numbers Large
42038 Everyday Life
Please stop by the SRM blog to see the other layout of mine posted and be utterly floored by everyone else's artwork! Hold on to your jaw, otherwise, you'll be looking for it on the floor!
