31 Days of Crafting - Day Nine - Happy Birthday Barbie!!!

My favorite doll, my favorite toy, my favorite everything Barbie is 58 today.  I have so many wonderful memories of playing with this doll.  My Barbie dolls weren't just models and beauty pageant contestants, but they were astronauts and nurses and lawyers.  They owned soda shops and Pizza Hut, one was an ambassador for UNICEF.  Barbie could be ANYTHING, whether she was wearing a Dollar Tree dress or a Donna Karan coat or a cut off sock (don't act like you didn't do this).  She was always inspiring to me.  She's still inspiring to me.  And every year I make a birthday card that celebrates her, because she deserves to be celebrated.

Just a few challenges:

Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!
