Skirts, Challenges, Mile-Stones...Oh MY!

First thing is First! This is my 100th Post!

Cue the Trumpets. Toot. Toot. Tootin' my own horn!

I really enjoy my little Blog World. It's slowly building up...considering I took 4ish months off! :) I'd really like to get crackin' this next 100 posts, though. Maybe do some guest posting...have a guest post-ee...get some sponsors! Baby steps!!!

Okay. Now. Down to business.

A couple of weeks ago (seems like yesterday) I did a post regarding Funky Polkadot Giraffe's "Bookmarked from Blogland" Challenge. We were supposed to pick a project we had bookmarked and get-r-done! Today we're meeting up over at Funky Polkadot Giraffe to Linky Up what we accomplished!

I picked this Adorable Scalloped Skirt from Ameroonie Designs. And...guess what???

I DID IT!

Toot. Toot. Tootin' my own Horn!

I'm such a newbie at sewing. But Amy {she is totally my new hero} has such an awesome tutorial...she made me look like I knew what I was doing!!! I want to give her a big virtual squeeze! Please go check her out...I can't imagine the amount of work she put into making this skirt tutorial. It is FANTASTIC!

Wanna see the result of her genius and my blind blundering???


Perfect Girly Puffi-ness!
Lady Kat is going to have a Cupcake Themed 2nd Birthday and she'll be wearing this!

Don't think my hall tree is doing it justice? Wanna see it on a live model???
Alright. Since you said, "Please!"

I couldn't get Lady Kat to stand still...even with Goldfish Bribery.

I, also, sorely need a new camera.


Okay...she will seriously be the Bell of her Ball! And if you look quick enough...doesn't the skirt almost look cup cakey in itself? With a dollop of pink frosting? And sugar on the top!
