Today is new SVG release day over at Platypus Creek! There are two being released today & one tomorrow, so make sure you pop over to the challenge blog & check out what fab creations the girlies have come up with!!

I have used the fab Babushka doll, I have always had a fascination with these beautiful dolls, so to play with one was fab! I decided as soon as I saw her I wanted the distressed/shabby chic/vintage look, hope it worked! The face was drawn on by Nige lololol!!  Only because I could shout at him if he messed up, but if I messed up, my fault! lolol!!
