    I agree with all the comments that everyone did a fantastic job, lucky bunch of ladies to get the opportunity.
    My favs are #4 Lexi Bridges with the really neat pillow case skirt. As far as the blogging, it sounds like she’s just having a conversation with you and the quality of her pictures is great. And my 2nd fav is #5 Kim wilson, what an amazing collection and huge inspiration of ideas! Not to mention I’m a huge hello kitty fan!
    Good luck to all!

    I love #23. I have been looking to make prize ribbons for a barnyard party that I am planning. Not only is Do’s tutorial clear and easy to understand but she included a free download. It’s like I hit the jackpot!
    Keeping my fingers crossed!
