SQUEAL.... I DID IT!!!!!

Totally out of my comfort zone and so very, very excited it worked!!!!!

I decided I would give making my own jewelry a whirl.   When Crowabout StudioB gave me her NAMASTE Mini Digital Pack to play with... I was giddy to get started.

Well, as all things Arline go... I ordered the wrong paper to create with. So I had to make due with going "old school" and sticking to digital scrapping.

Oh, how I loved playing with the pieces in the kit...and KNEW I had to bring this doll to life.

Today my paper arrived and I got to work, printing out all my pieces and shrinking them.

Bob said he should have taken a video of me... in my Hello Kitty pjs, sitting in front of the oven, with the oven light on... squealing as my paper shrunk.  He said it was like watching a kid with Shrinky Dinks.  (sssh.... don't tell him that's exactly what it was... it's our secret.)

I have to go to the craft store tomorrow to get chain to complete my necklace...  she needs to be able to hold her sign as well...

All I can say is... if you imagine it... create it. If you dream it... live it!
