If you upload your Paper Doll to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSGBDAY1 so we can check out your beautiful work!

So, here she little girl from Pumpkins on the Vine. I LOVE HER!! I stamped her on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored her with my Copics. Her outfit was paper pieced with some Echo Park Happy Halloween paper(still my favoritest paper ever). I couldn't get her to stand up at first, so I added a support piece to her base...then she was perfect!! I followed Christine's FABU directions...what a neato idea!! And well, I couldn't just make a paper doll, so I had to make a fun card to go with her!!

She was paper pieced and colored the same way, and I even used the same Echo Park DP. I followed this month's Sketch For You To Try, as well. I used a sentiment from the adorable Hauntingly Delightful set. My brads are from Michael's, and my Spiral clip is from Creative Express. My ribbons, all three of them, are SO YUMMY and are part of the new Ribbon Club Kits being offered by The Ribbon Carousel! Here are the details!

Well, that is it for me for now! Can't wait to see what all you come up with, and what kind of fun we can have this month celebrating!! HUGS!!
