New Banner!

Over at the Girl Talk blog they challenged us to make a New blog banner using Dani Mogstad's designs. I had never made my own banner before. Man this could get addicting! It did take a bit for me to figure out how to put it up. But I think I have it now! (I also added the credits to the bottom of my blog but was wondering if I could make that font smaller? anyone know?

Dani Mogstads elements and paper from Love Sprung and Spring Chick kits, Traci Reeds Alpha from Love Sprung Kit, 2 Peas Barefoot Professor font, Traci Muprhy's Drop Shadows

Molly revisited

Here she is Miss Molly all dressed and hair done. I read a great article on restoring her hair www.justmagicdolls.com I used Simplicity pattern #4347 to make her cute little skirt, blouse and vest. Sammi is so happy with her. It was fun to do some sewing again and to see how excited she was for me to finish. We already have other items planned to make for her - next project is some under things LOL.
