Sketching with the Dollies

Here is my final January project for the Design Dollies:

It's based on a sketch by Kristy, and this was the layout that featured on my 'December' page for the famous guinea pig calendar which taunted me throughout the last months of 2009!!

On that topic, my daughter loved the calendar! Here's some pics of her on Christmas Day (really must scrap these ones...)

I have had the best fun as a Guest Designer at Design Dollies in January, and I want to say THANK YOU to Karmyn and Adina and Kristy for the fun challenges and the other visiting Dollies fans for your fabulous supportive and encouraging comments on my creations xx

Sarah Lou is going to enjoy being the February Guest Designer - can't wait to see what you've been creating :)

PS ~ While I was at my favourite orange blog, I found a link to Meg's Twisted Tree (cool blog name!) which is full of gorgeous handmade goodies and cute stuff, and a current blog giveaway too... check it out :)
