Yeah, isn't she awesome?  I think one of my favorite things is the phrase "Bondage Fun!"  Smiley  I am also ridiculously impressed with her duds, especially the fishnets!

WOW ..Crystal recieved her doll today from Hookin Flamingo. She has been asking about it daily. The first thing she did was run around the house with the box to show it off. The outside of the box was so sweetly done with a princess story and pictures. 
Then she got even more excited as she opened up the box. She is very thrilled and has been babying it and carrying it around.
My youngest son discovered a winnie the pooh note pad and took it as his. 
The doll and puppy are wonderfully done and thank you for making my princess a very pretty princess. This has been a great swap now if I had not forgotten to take a pix of mine before I mailed it out to the UK..

So very glad your daughter liked it.
I wish I would have thought to ask if you had any other kids...I would have been happy to make something for your son also.
I will find the before pic so you can see what she looked like before the dress and the new hair do.
The drawing and the story one the outside of the box was my daughters idea...I just did the drawing and writing.
I do not have a brefore pic of the puppy but, it was a victoria secrets dog that use to have on a santa hat lol

Once again I am very happy your little girl liked her...maybe we will do a round 2 and I can make something for your little boy. My son would be happy to help make him a ninja or a robot or something.

This is the before of the doll I made into a princess

She was bought at a consignment store and was in awful shape.
Her hair was pulled into 2 pony tails, her face, legs and arms had crayon marks on them and her clothes were just UGLY lol

So I took her hair off, washed and dryed it, cleaned up her body, threw out the old clothes and fixed her up.
I wish I had taken more pics of the during part but, all I have is a web cam so you can see the pics are not that good.
The puppy was a victoria secret Christmas dog. So it had a ribbion around its neck that said victoria's secret and a santa hat on.

Well the doll dress I crocheted (just making up as I went along) her shoes are slippers made from some foam sheets I had in the craft room. Her crown and the dogs collar are jewelery wire with plastic clear star shaped beads on them.
her hair (sfter being washed and dried) was just brushed and styled into a curly ponytail with a bow.

that is a great before and after pictures...Crystal thought she looked funny before...she has talked to her all day about her hair and how pretty it was.  That was very nice and sweet of your daughter to come up with the box idea. We are keeping the box with the doll as she was thrilled with it also. The puupy is just so cute and a perfect match for the princess doll and  with her collar and leash ready to go for her walk. We have two dogs and she loved that her doll has one also.
Round two sounds like fun and Daniel would be next in line for anything cowboy as seen by his foot wear with his shorts in the pix.
Ok now I will rest easier at night knowing  mine has gotten 90 south of London safely..Ready for round 2...
