Hooray! It's time for another Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday Challenge! This is a good one, so I hope you can play along. This week the challenge is to create a project using either Nifty Fifties or Camping Critters. Both cartridges are super cute, but I don't have either one...and you don't have to have either one to play along either. Just choose a similarly themed cut and link up your project on the Scrappy Moms Stamps blog - HERE!
I always equate Barbie with the 50's, and I could have sworn that there was a similar silhouette on the Nifty Fifties cartridge, but when I went back to see what page in the booklet she was on, I realized...I must have imagined it. There is a silhouette of a dancing girl in a poodle skirt, so I am going to say that my "Barbie-esque" silhouette is similar to her and call it a day...alright? Alright!
I do think this silhouette would be ADORABLE if you were wanting to throw a vintage Barbie party. As an aside...have you shopped for Barbie's lately? Nicole asked Santa for a "princess Barbie," and he had a VERY hard time finding one. When did Barbie become so trampy? Even Barbie's "career" outfits were questionable. I'm not going to tell you what the firefighter outfit reminded me of...I'll just let you use your imagination. So anywho...if Nicole ever asks for a Barbie themed birthday party - she's getting a vintage Barbie party, and now I'll have a super cute image to use.

Quick Note - I updated my indexed "Cards" and "Scrapbooking" pages. Previously, they were arranged by Cricut cartridge, but I switched things around and arranged them by category. For example, this card would have previously been in the "Silhouette" card category, but now it will go in the "Encouragement" card category. Hope that is helpful! If you haven't ever browsed the pages before, take a look. I have been obsessively indexing EVERY project that I've ever posted. Yes, I am a little bit of a Type A personality...why do you ask?
