A bit of folding

Loving the Dollies challenge this week, show some paper folding on your project. I have folded a little paper bow and the paper dahlia.

This was a bit fiddly to start with but love the result. I used 11 circles for a more clustered look but there are some gorgeous flowers made with 8 circles (see here for a tutorial).

Loving the Prima background paper as well.

Yes I did manage to get a photo of Meaghan (thanks to her friend Crystal who cam to get changed at our house, she loves getting her photo taken). I won't comment on Crystal's outfit because she looked totally fab but I am very glad Meaghan has not gotten into short skirts and high heels yet..

So off to the Dollies you must go and show us some of your paper folding.

We started soccer this weekend. I love that Henry's team now starts at 10:30, missing the frost is always appreciated. It was completely beautiful morning and the kids played well. They still don't keep scores (good thing for Henry's team as they were a bit outplayed). I took along the camera and have used a couple of the photos on this weeks Sketchy Thursday's Lo. (sorry the scan has a bit chopped off)

Meaghan's team also had their first game of the year. She has swapped teams from last year and is now in with her friends and indoor soccer team mates. Despite being completely worn out for the disco the night before, the girls managed to pull of a win. Very exciting - I think the coach was a bit stunned. Will have photos up soon.

Now for something a bit terrifying (for me anyway). I don't know what to say, I think the picture says it all.She is 6.

And I know this photo is probably photoshopped to give her that lovely plastic doll look(!!!) but seriously!! She is 6!!

And people are paying her money to come to Australia to show her stuff to other little girls.

sigh...Why do I get a bad feeling that she will be demanding plastic surgery by the time puberty kicks in to hide those awful teenage wrinkles..

Well it won't be hard to get the doll they are planning to release (yep) to look like her anyway.

OK onto some housework, have a great day xx

I love love love love love these Karen! I loveeee the colors and loving that bling on the first one! And that is sad about the little girl! I once was at a scrapbook convention in Tennessee one year and right next to my convention was a little girls pageant...and it was scary to see those girls dressed up that way! Thanks soooooooo much for playing along with Sketchy Thursdays! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
