Sending Cinderella to the Ball.

Okay, well not really the Ball, like in Handsome Prince and all that because she's still wearing her work clothes.  But she IS going to a rather interesting party--more of a come-as-you-are sort of thing.  The attendees will all be Storybook Dolls from the members of MAIDA.  Dixie started this big ol' shindig as a "group submission", and it's been so fun to see what everybody comes up with. 

You'll find the Storybook Doll challenge in the summer issue of Prims Magazine.

I had finished Cinderella quite a while back, except for her little pals and a broom.  So look closely...a mouse on her head, one on her shoulder, and a little bird has landed on the end of her broom.  (Might be suggesting a bit of chocolate Ex-Lax in Step-Monster's cocoa?)

Anyway, here's my Izannah Walker version of Cinderella.  I won't see her again for MONTHS because submissions to Prims take a while to find their way home.

  5. Might she be featured in the magazine? She is so right as the "before" Cinderella.

  8. Cinderella is beautiful. The litle animals are sweet. It would be nice to see the same doll dressed up after Fairy god mother transforms her into her ball gown.
