Preparations For The Dress Form Ball On Monday

Are you ready for Mondays Dress Form Ball?  

It has been a flurry of activity here at my estate preparing for the ball!   


The Gardeners have been grooming the grounds and The Staff has been busy preparing for the banquet.  What's that I hear....Oh yes, that's the orchestra tuning up!

The Carriages have been sent to pick up the guests

Oh look, some of the guests have arrived early!

So, hurry and get ready, Belle and Lady Anita Man are so excited for everyone to arrive

 Purchasing and transforming dress form tutorials HERE, HERE, and HERE

We will see you all on Monday! If you are unsure how to link up your dress form post, once you have posted it, email me (My email button on top left side bar) and I will link your post up for you.

Happy Creating!

I will try again. My first comment wouldn't take. I will make it short this time. Due to too many doctor appointments "Ginny" is still inhabiting the box in the garage.
I will be there peeking around those magnificent pillars and enjoying all the lavishly attired ladies.
Love to all, Ginger
