what the heck is wrong with me that I've never visited your blog???? But better late than never! :o) and it won't happen again, that I miss one of yopur fabby creations: I'm a new follower :o) LOL
Love this cute girl with her hair, reminds me of myself when I was a little child and my teacher never believed that I combed my hair...she let me do it in front of the class :S that was sooooo mean ... never mind, I survived ;))
Have a wonderful Christmas Eve!
