Monday Montage #14

Hip-hip Hooray!! It's MONDAY (well, actually ... we post these on Sunday night ... but, I digress!)!! Which can ONLY mean it's time for Monday Montage!!! Sooooo excited, so let's get started!!

I went to a "downline" meeting at Pam Morgan's on Saturday ... I'm not actually IN her downline, but was kinda adopted in at some point last year ... LOVE her ... LOVE her group!! We have SOOOO much fun together!

One of the things we do when we get together is a "shoebox swap" (for those who don't know what that is ... everyone brings a card they have designed with all the things everyone will need to make their own copy of the card ... and they bring their supplies in a "shoebox" ... or something similar!). Pam had the ca-YOOTest card with a little nesting doll on it made from the Owl Builder punch. Which got me to thinkin' ... wouldn't it be FUN to make a set of NESTING DOLLS in DIFFERENT SIZES??? MDS/eCutters to the RESCUE!!

I played around in my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software and was able to come up with everything I needed to make these cuties ... SOOOOOO much FUN!!!

Here are the little dollies up a little closer ... Squeeeee!! That are makin' me HAPPY!!

Here it is from a slightly different angle ...

I never bought the nesting dolls set and now I'm sorry. I love what you did here, but can I use the actual punches, etc., instead of MSD, which I will never be able to do? Thanks so much for sharing this and all your projects! Nancy B
