Playing with Dollies (and a winner too!)

Where has this month gone?

This is my project for the July 26th Design Dollies colour challenge, using the colours of blueand yellow (and you can add a smidgen of black or white if you want).  I made a little felt notebook pouch for one of the J-girl's teachers:

I'm entering my project at:
# Creative Inspirations ~ Challenge #39 ~ Anything goes
# Create4Fun ~ Week 30 ~ Flowers

Thank you to everyone who joined in the Design Dollies blog hop - I loved reading everyone's guesses about which Dollie was mine!

I think it's time to reveal that this is the little Dollie that represents me >>

She is a Betsy McCall paper doll.  She's simple and quiet, but given the opportunity she also loves to dress up.  If you're not familiar with Betsy dolls, you can find a large collection at Teri Petitt's page.  This one is from February 1959.

The winner for my giveaway is... JANE (J-Bug)
Congratulations!  Please contact me via the email in my profile, and I will post off your prize as soon as I can.
