the bloglandia ball!

finally...the big day...has arrived!


i've polished my patent leather shoes...ironed my silken hair ribbons...and practiced the mazurka!


may i have this dance?




ok, it's not a gown, as such! i started out to make a proper gown, honest! but it sort of turned into a ball-themed collage! ...so i went with it... because that seemed like the bloglandia ball thing to do!

for more links, gowns, surprises and excitement...swish and sway your way over to be...dream...play, aka bloglandia ball HQ!

    You've got a whole line of dancers waiting to waltz you around...or is it the tango..or mazurka?! Enjoy yourself! Have a blast!

  29. Lauren:
    I love your collage!!!
    P.S. Josie left with Scoundrel & Rogue only because they gave Queen of Crowns Donna O'Brien a lift home. She is trying to get Donna to create her a French inspired crown. She is totally mercenary : )
    I truly hope eb makes this an annual affair.
    I will visit often as I want to learn paper arts and you do them so well!!!

  39. I bought a iFrogz Luxe case when I purchased my iPhone. It is a pretty nice case, but I wanted to know if there is something better out there. Since the iPhone is a really expensive phone with no insurance, I want to make sure I get a case that provides excellent all-around protection, while not damaging the phone itself (like the screen/back of phone).
