Super Scrap-a-Thon sketch # 3

I love how these pictures came out--they are from last January. My mom took us to the American Girl Store in Dallas. She loves American Girl dolls. It is a truly amazing place, even men are amazed. It is always packed and you'd never know there was a recession by the way people spend money in there. You hear foreign languages--it's a tourist attraction--Disney on a smaller scale! They have a bistro on the 2nd floor and you have to make reservations weeks in advance. Mom took us there for lunch--it was really special and fun. Colors are SU Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava, and Wild Wasabi, DP and ribbon are retired SU. Alpha is Curlie Girlie by Sizzix. Cricut cartridges are Stretch Your Imagination and Accent Essentials. I also used Nesties and ! Yes, my sewing machine! I have to read the directions EVERY time, but it always works for me. I had fun with this sketch--Thanks for looking!
