Bibbidi Bobbidi Ball at Paper Whimsy

I don't know why I ever start out with an "idea" in my head for a project cuz my muse just takes over and does it her way! SHE didn't want to create what I had envisioned so I went along with her...I never argue with my muse. :o)


However after we finished her gown, I asked permission to make mine and she contentedly agreed. I have posted both of the finished gowns below and am going to let you decide which one I should "wear" to the ball. My muse and I have agreed that your vote will make the decision and we are NOT telling you which creation belongs to who. We also know that one gown looks more "ball-like" but we would like you to vote for the gown that you like the best! If you would like to leave me a comment telling me why you chose the one you did, I would be thrilled!
If you'd like to, please tell your friends...I would like a good mix of people voting. Thanks...I will let you know on August 25th which gown won.
The poll is POSTED TO THE RIGHT of this blog post and I think the choices are are self-explanatory....Asian-Inspired Gown & Flower-Power Gown shown below left to right. :o)

While I love the Flower-Power Gown, I absolutely LOVE, LOVE the Asian-Inspired Gown! It is so vibrant and unique and says "I am a confident, strong, independent and beautiful woman who isn't afraid to be noticed in a crowd!".

according to Haze and party dresses, it's all in the "twirl" factor. It ain't a party dress unless it floats up and looks like a tutu when you twirl around on the dance floor :*) :*)


They are both beautiful dresses :*)
