The Sunbonnet Babies, Fair Women & Butterflies

The Sunbonnet Babies`s Primer

The Sunbonnet Babies Primer, published in 1902, was illustrated by Bertha L. Corbett and revolved around the adventures of Molly and May, two little girls whose faces were completely hidden by large sunbonnets.   The primer was built around a 150-word vocabulary with later printings containing word lists to assist the teacher in picking out key words and phrases for emphasis.

The Sunbonnet Babies' primers were the first children's school books to carry the same characters all the way through the text. They were also the first to be printed in four colors and to use an improved, larger font.

This is the title page from The Sunbonnet Babies' Primer, which was
 published in 1902 by Rand McNally and Company.

Just note  four colors....

What a supberb vintage card by Avril,woww

I have used Prima Botanicals papers and my lovely image was cut using a Deckle edge Nesti. The little sentiment was included in a little pack of 'freebies' with my last order from Crafty Individuals, and it just seemed appropriate with this image. My roses are again made with the paper clay, just love this stuff.

The Less Bitchy Pill

Lisa Minckler was working with my latest tags to create these really so unnusual ones,,, so directy from her blog: Sometimes projects just fall into your lap. Circumstances, resources, and inspiration. The joyous trifecta for unbridled creativity!! Here's mine...

The medicinal remedy for 'monsterating'..
The Less Bitchy Pill

A little experiment with two kinds of spray paint. Frosted and Looking Glass (mirror). 
Here you'll see I have 3 glasses ready to go.

The Frosted worked incredibly!.Dry within 10 minutes. Pulling off the Frog tape and rubberbands didn't hurt the glass a bit. The Looking Glass paint however, HORRID! I was so displeased with the outcome, I threw the glass away. More practice with that later...

And just a couple more sedatives to stock my craftroom apothecary.Chill Pills

Happy Pills

Butterfly Twinchies

Wow, woww and what about this amazing creation by Vicky? :Hope you are having a good week so far! Today is a National Holiday in the province of Quebec so I'm off work!!! Wooohooo :) And hopefully I'll get to craft a bit...

I'm here this morning with my 1st post from Nicecrane Designs. The image is from the set:I totally adore butterflies! And I find these ones so elegant! They can be used for any type of occasions. that's why I didn't put a sentiment on this card and left it blank.

The paper is from Harvest Lane - Simple stories. I used some I am roses flowers as well as some petaloo premier flowers. I added a little ribbon from my stash and used my nesting lace squares from Quickutz.

Here's a closer look at the precolored image!

Isn't it just gorgeous?!?
