Let's get started.

All three winners will be announced on Jan. 18, 2014 on the Mark's Finest Papers blog. You can go back and comment if you missed a day.

My target for this week's blog hop was to create 7 dolls and their outfits so I can put them away safely and donate them to the Operation Christmas Child shoebox appeal later this year but I only completed 4 as you will see as the week progresses.  I hope you like this new set and have fun with it. 
Perhaps everyone's children and grandchildren can be persuaded to put the computers away for an hour or two!


This card was made by "doctoring" the stamped images to make an outfit that my niece might wear.  She formally takes over her class this week and begins her teaching career.
The sentiment was cut with my Cricut and the apple is from an older MFP set.
The clothes are coming this week in the "Out and About" set - I just did a merge of the two outfits in that set and then combined with today's paper doll.

Here's the Design Team:
Janine (you are here!)
Shirley Q (Pop over to this blog next!)

continuation of our Blog Hop. We will be introducing
