  2. Love the mug vignette. Always feels so homey when you entertain. And those party dresses are truly incredible. I’m going to have to make a few of these when I find a bit of time. They look like so much fun and are really great additions to your journal/altered book.

    Thanks for sharing your party dresses for T this Tuesday.

  34. Those origami dresses look like so much fun! I can imagine they would be addictive: I’m already imagining all the different papers you could make them in! I’m going to have to give it a go! It takes me back to all the fun my friends and I used to have with dressing paper dollies when we were kids. I love the stamp you chose to go with the dress – just made for each other! Julie Ann xxx
