I am the best auntie

Actually I can't justify that claim at all. But this is me with my newest niece, Holly, and she can't argue with me so I will make the claim until she is old enough to deny it...

Isn't she cute, like a little pixie. I think she was a bit overwhelmed by the crowd but she was happy to sit with me and look around (if you look closely you will see grasped in her little fist my version of bribery for the under one's. It is my wooden bracelet, just right for munching on, although I did have to take it away after the colour ended up on her face, hmm I assume it was baby friendly dye..)

this is for Design Dollies, a good old fashioned list of requirements for their elements challenge.
  • The color Baby Blue
  • Ink (and lots of it!)
  • Masking (to get the masked effect)
  • Newspaper print, or some sort of paper with words (like the cool dictionary papers they have, or just lots of words, kwim?)
  • Stripes
Ok a nice quick, vaguely logical post. Will be back to my ramblings soon. xx
