New Dolls, Old Dolls

I have made no secret as to my passion for the Julie Nutting Doll stamps. Other than the fact that they are pure fun to play with, they are so versatile (if you have the patience) and she keeps putting out new ones.

These cards are simple, with not a great deal of fine embellishment that my lovely friends use, but they are still cute.

This one is using the Chiara stamp, but I've dressed her in Aidan's jeans....that's right she's wearing boyfriend jeans!

She is embellished with a Green Tara satin bow, Green Tara white stemmed flowers (de-stemed) and Green Tara lace. My Hollyhock Die is getting a work out as the background flowers and a wooden fence keeps the garden in place.

Now on to an old favourite of mine - Riley. I really love her stance and flirty little dress, which I've embellished with some Green Tara red gingham frill ribbon, a Green Tara mini rosebud, Green Tara small red petal and a pearl.

Falling Leaves

It seems only fitting as Autumn is upon us here in Australia, that I post a layout celebrating leaves and the fun kids have with them. 

These photos were taken by my friend Karina way back in 2008. One of the memories that comes back when I see these photos is that my eldest was adamant that it wasn't cold so didn't bring a jumper to the park with she ended up wearing mine as of course she was "freezing"!

Papers and embellishments are Pink Paislee, Maya Road Chipboard tree and Green Tara leaves.
