Meet Mae...

Last weekend I came across a pattern I'd downloaded about a year ago from Bit Of Whimsy Dolls. (They really are the sweetest patterns on that site!) I had intended on making one for Madi way back then but obviously I got caught up doing other things. Anyway...I decided to dig out some scraps of fabric and felt and finally make Madi a Mae Doll. Here she is!

Isn't she the sweetest? Madi absolutely adores her. :D She was pretty easy to make too! Madi chose the hair and eye colour...and the fabric for her body and skirt. I made a couple of extra skirts as well since Madi's right into changing her doll's clothes at the moment. It was fun to do a little sewing again. :)

Now for a little scrapping share. This week's challenges went up on Thursday over at Scrapz and this was my sample for the colour combo challenge...(Details can be found HERE in the forum.)

A closeup...

I don't often use orange for my backgrounds but I kinda like how this turned out. :)

Well...I think that's about all I've got to share at the moment. I'm trying to get into Christmas mode and start on my cards and think about gifts. Have you started yet? I'm really trying to be organised this year...:P

See you again soon!

Up, Up & Away!

We've had so many fantastic entries fill the gallery over at Scrapz.Biz for our World Card Making Day fun! I thought I'd share my second challenge sample that went up last week....a window card. :)

The cute little birdies and scallop circle frame are from the Cosmo Cricket Togetherness range. (You'll find a little tutorial on how I created this card in the forum HERE.)

During the week I also managed to put this page together just for fun. :) These photos are from Ayden's very first helicopter flight with Daddy...almost exactly a year ago! So glad I finally got them down on paper...

I've used up some old scraps and stash on this one... gotta love that!

Sorry...just a quick post tonight. I've gotta run because Survivor's about to start! :) Hope everything's great where you are. Thanks so much for dropping by!
