girly shoes

I was walking by the baby aisle in Target the other day and saw an adorable gray and yellow outfit and the first thought that came to my mind was that I have never created a layout with that color scheme and that I really should!
If you knew me, you would know that I am not like normal women - I really kind of really dislike shoes!  I find a pair that I like and I wear them for years (and years!)  Well, our office recently adopted a casual business jeans day Friday policy.  So, something between business casual and jeans day.  What it meant for me was that the shoes that I normally wore with jeans needed an upgrade!  
If you knew me, you would also know that I hate clothes shopping in general.  So shopping for shoes - MISERABLE!  
I went shopping, expecting to find nothing.  Instead, I found these adorable ballet slippers from J. Crew!  Of course, they didn't have my size - 10s - but I ordered them online and they arrived a few days later.
I used my  February 2012 Studio Calico kit, Daydream Believer (my sixth with this kit!)   Chevrons are so fun and easy (yet time consuming!)  I used bits of different papers from the kit.  My favorite little addition to this page is the little rhinestones that I added to the center of the butterflies.  They were from a BasicGrey bling snowflake that i bought a few years ago and never used.
Have a great week everyone!

  2. Love that colour combo too. I know the feeling with regards to shoe shopping. I currently have 2 pairs of shoes on the go which is one more than I usually do!
