put on your party dress...

Ok, so I am slightly behind on my happy projects, but still workin' in the background to catch up.  This little gal has been sitting patiently in my craft room waiting for her moment in the spotlight...which came early this morning and she is helping brighten my day.  If you can recall, several weeks ago I started sifting through a memory box of mine from my high school and college years.  My little men standing right by my side to claim almost every thing that looked like a toy.  In the mix we stumbled across this troll. 

Do you remember these?  Did you ever have one...or maybe you still do?  I just knew that I would have to dress her up and cover that little bum of hers. 

Used tiny pieces of Pat Sloan's new fabric, felt, buttons, ribbon adhesive (to keep the dress together) and created a necklace from glass pearl beads and thread.  Cut a wood skewer for the pennant flag and add Zots to keep it in her hand.  An what is completes the project...a matching card of course.

Supplies: CARD - Pebbles (paper), American Crafts (paper), Heidi Swapp (color shine), My Mind's Eye (paper), Simple Stories (paper), Spellbinders (die cut), Studio Calico (wood frame), Papertrey Ink (die cut, stamp, button, twine), staple, sewing machine. DOLL - Pat Sloan (fabric), Glue Arts (ribbon adhesive), Papertrey Ink (stamp, ink, button, twine), Heidi Swapp (color shine), American Crafts (cardstock), Quickutz (die), felt, glass beads, thread.

Completed day #12 and #13 and will share here tomorrow!  Here is a little peek at one of them that I have been working on inspired by this invitation and a baby shower that I am currently working on.

Love the flowers on the black background.  Enjoy your day and many happy moments that fill it!
