My Newest Boy Mini

Here is a mini I created for my boss' son. He is 7. There isn't a lot on the market out there for boys! It's so frustrating.. Is anyone else having this problem? Maybe it's just in my area? But seriously in my area there is either baby boy or high school and nothing in between. If anyone has any suggestions for what I can do for the front of this book, I would really appreciate it!

Take care everyone!

But, please leave me your comments on ways to improve these.. I am totally in love with making these now!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend and Happy Monday for my Australian and New Zealand friends.

My new dress form

While in Reno, my hubby took me to Ross to get some pants so we could stay an extra night. I walked into Ross and instantly fell in love.. right before me was the prettiest dress form I ever seen! I ran to her and actually hugged her and said " oh honey, I have to have her! He threw her in the basket and the rest is history. Isn't she gorgeous??!! Check out your local Ross ladies. I found her and one other one!
