Just A (Birthday) Girl

Morning all.

Halfway through the first week of the Easter hols and there have been no casualties - must be doing something right!

I had some time to play yesterday as the boys were both out playing with their friends and Andy was away doing some birthday shopping :) 

I had a birthday card a friend had ordered to finish off but I can't share that yet and once I'd finished I was about to put everything away (no, really, I was) when I decided to do something just for fun!

I decided I'd enter the Sugary Sunday challenge on Facebook this week which is dies and doodles and it went from there. I have paper pieced her dress using some self adhesive gingham paper I bought at the SECC when I was with Cathy (bought specifically for a Gorjuss girl) - there were 4 different colours of gingham on the one 12x12 sheet so this could feature again soon!

Challenges I'd Like to Enter
Papertake - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Happy Birthday
Crafting When We Can - Name That Tune
(Don't Stop Believin' - Journey - only because the first line is stuck in my head  - just a small town girl....)
Sugary Sunday - Dies and Doodles

Just A Girl - Funky Kits
Sentiments - LOTV
