WOYWW and a Disc -o - doll

Hello my dear friends!

First big apologies for not coming round to much of you - the reason is my knee is still hurting so I try to be good and stay away from the computer! I hope this pain goes away soon  I was hoping for a quicker healing but obviosly it takes longer or am I just very impatient?????
Anyway thank you for all the lovely get well wishes - they all help and make me happy! 
So what have I been doing whilst my leg is sitting on a pillow or a chair??? I didn't do much crafting but I can show off a disc - o - doll I have made! I was looking at the lovely doll Donna made and wondering if I could make something like a doll myself!  I was reading a very old 2002 Stampers Sampler and I found these disco - dolls in there - made with a CD! I thought to myself " oh that will be easy I can make that! " Yeh well I could make it but it wasn't easy - took me all day and you will see what a mess I made on my terrace - just to make a doll ( my DBF says it isn't even a doll it is a humpty dumpty - huh that boost my confidence!) 
Ok then prepare your snooping machines (eyes) and wizz around my desk which is not my desk really but my terrace table! Lunch Lady Jan do you see where your bunting is proudly displayed???? 
So my "desk".....

my desk when the doll was in the making....

more mess to be seen......

and finally my disc - o - doll.....

I used elements from Dylusions stamps but also a stamp from Alpha stamps - says ART for her hair - used some Bo Bunny DP and copics and stickles to glam her up.....this is the disc side but I made another side too....on this side I covered the cd and added some buttons  - also stickles!

Another look at my WOYWW....

If you want more of a snoop - if you haven't worn out your "snooping machine" get over to our HQ where Queen Julia will show you to more snoopy sites.....
Lots of hugs to all 
PS.: Donna and Jo as you can see there are 2 chairs free waiting for you to come and craft with me....it is just 29 deg C today so ideal for crafting...:-)

  16. Patience in healing is the key dear gal, however frusttrating! Love the Cdolly...using the ART stamp for her hair was an inspired idea!

  17. Sorry you are still having pain on your knee but I think it might be like that for a few more days - sorry! Just think how much better you will be at the end of it all. Hope it soon disappears (the pain not you leg).
    Love your work area - have heard all about it and no doubt will get much more told tome when I next see Jo.
    Love your doll, she's definitely at the diso.
    Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet 71 xx
