Just had to share....

For all my doll friends and miniature lovers... isn't this camera the cutest? It's a 1/6 scale replica of a real life DSLR camera. Perfect size for Blythe! I actually have been wishing for a real life sized working model for myself but that's another story on my very long wish list that keeps growing and growing.... does it ever end? Anyhow, let's not get off topic.... You can find this fun little find at the Photojojo website. They have the coolest photography gadgets and their newsletter is filled with tips and tricks and is a lot of fun to read, I highly recommend it!

Pepper and I threw caution to the wind and braved the crowds at the California Mid State Fair for our submission to the Blythe Photo Challenge and we won!!! Peppers dress was made by the talented Kyle Ruth of Button Arcade and her cute lollipop plushie was created by Becky of Scrumptious Delight. Thank you ladies, your creations were just perfect for this picture!

It definitely pays off to not wait until after the deadline to submit your picture :) (Though I will admit that it was close!) I have been struggling with this since the challenge started. There are always really great, creative submissions and I feel honored that my picture was chosen.

I really love being challenged to be more creative with my pictures and I have a lot of fun participating. I appreciate Jennifer and Wendy for doing this every month, and want to say thank you! I will also be donating a personalized metal stamped Blythe necklace every month to the goody bag show my appreciation. So if you haven't yet joined the group, it's open to everyone and you can participate at any time. Please join us!

And on a final note.... Please vote for Beads of Courage in the Pepsi Refresh Project. They didn't make it to the top 10 last month so they decided to try again in August. You can vote daily, in many different ways. I promise they will not spam you. For more information on Beads of Courage please see my last post. I am adding a voting widget to my blog to make voting easy. Thank you so much!
