Winter
Well, here we are at the end of the hop...
I had so much fun with my friends creating these dolls.....

I will miss it, however, I will be making several more I am sure!

I struggled with the "winter" theme this week....
only because I had so many ideas, many more ideas then time!

 
I thought this Prima looked like she was thinking "brrr"
and decided to make a giant Christmas tag with her....
my first idea was non traditional Christmas colors and skates...
that one will come later....
I made her "sweater" out of cordinations...I thought by sanding it
it would give it more of a sweater look...
and of course she has to have a "glitzy" skirt.....
the snowflakes are both TH Alterations dies.....

 
the big snowflake behind her is from SU.....
The paper I have been using for my dolls is Prima Ledger..

I have enjoyed you visiting me and appreciate your comments...
I am trying to make my way around to your blogs, too.
My winning name will be posted on the 30th....
look for your name and email me...
my email is on the right side bar...
I will be gone after the winner is announced til the 3rd...
and will contact you when I get back...
Good Luck!!

I love your gal! The pastels on a stocking is a fun change-up. Your doll looks like all she needs is hot cocoa to help warm her up. She's beautiful!
I follow your posts.

The sock is so cool. I like nontraditional colors.

The doll is so perfect for the sock. The scarf adds movement. Love it all.

Thanks for all the dolls and the work you put into each one and the background. I truly appreciate it.
