American Girl Doll Dress

I thought I would show you the little dress that I made for Audrey's doll.

She saw a dress just like this in the American Girl catalog and asked for it for her birthday.  Since I already had a dress pattern, I decided to look for the right fabric and make it myself.  It took me a while to find this fabric, but I finally did!

Audrey's birthday was in August, so the gift was a little late.  But she really liked it, so I'm happy.

Three New Cards

I worked on some cards this week with a kit that I received from Flourishes. Lots of pretty stamps and papers to work with--very inspirational. I kept it simple with very little embellishments, just because that was the mood that I was in at the time.

Back to Scrappin'

I decided to take a little quiet time to myself this morning to get back to scrapbooking, if only for one page. I used the photo that was in my previous blog post to do a page for Erin's birthday. The supplies are from the May kit from Scrapbook Sussies, as well as the page sketch.

Happy 12th Birthday Erin!

Erin turns 12 years old today! How did she spend her birthday? We were at our annual meeting for our chapter of the Turner Syndrome Society, and Erin spent the day taking care of preschoolers with TS while their parents were in the meeting listening to speakers. Do I have an awesome daughter or what? She spent her birthday serving others! Can I get an "Amen!"?

In the pic she is holding the tote bag that I made for her birthday gift. It's made out of an old pair of my jeans. This is the first time that I've ever made prairie points. Not bad.

Also in the background of the pic is Daffodil, waiting for us to slice the birthday cake.

Happy Birthday Erin!
