Love is in the Air at Polka Doodles!!

Well I am sitting in the comfort of my air conditioned lounge room as I write this as it is a scorcher outside but due to be in the 40's tomorrow so I guess today is not too bad.
It's time for a new challenge at Polka Doodles and with it comes a few changes.. The main one being that our challenges are moving to fortnightly. For all the details make sure you stop by the Polka Doodles blog, you will also be dazzled by all the DT's fabulous creations!
So this week's challenge at Polka Doodles is Love is in the Air! The DT were challenged to use the new Dollie Daydream goes East cd  which you can get from the Polka Doodles store. I was originally going to decorate a jar full of fortune cookies but decided to play around with the elements from the cd so made this fan instead which I just love.

My boys loved this when I showed them and so did a friend of mine!! I coloured the image in with tria markers to match the papers I used for the fan. I didn't like the hair when I first coloured it but once it had settled overnight it looks ok I think! The template, papers, image and alphabet I used to make the word love are all on the Dollie Daydream goes East cd. I first printed out the paper, then printed the fan template on that, then created the word love and printed it again.
I hope that you can join us this fortnight at Polka Doodles. And be sure to check out the Polka Doodles store.. Oh and there is now also a Polka Doodles Etsy store where you can buy the individual girls.... So no excuse not to go and grab these fabulous images :)
