What do you need?
- Scrapbook paper, I used the American Girl Crafts Paper Pad
- Pictures, I used an AG catalogue which I've got twice.
- Glue, like Elmer's glue and for the flowers glue dots
- Scissors.
- And Embellishments, I used the Posies Pad and some sticker for AG crafts

Step 1: Get two sheets of your scrapbook paper, use one for a background and use the other for  
Step 2: Get your picture and place it carefully on your sheet

3 layers of flowers and some gemstone

 I made a flower from the Posies Pad. Want to know more crafts with the Posies pad? Click here

Seals and pic's

Hello Happy People,
It's Kanani! I really love seals! Did you know that there are seals in the Netherlands? Be careful what you trow away, because otherwise it 'll come in the sea and the beautiful sea animals (like the seals) will die.... 
In the Netherlands we also have a foundation who takes care of sick seals and baby seals! 

 Today it was a sunny beautiful day and I paddle board! I saw Malana and we had a lot of fun.

I love the flowers on my paddle board!

Do you see those big brown eyes?

Isn't she cute?

I'm writing a school-project about seals and the foundation in the Netherlands. It really works out great! I made a news paper with lots of pic's.

Hope you've got some pretty perfect weather too!

Lots of love,

D.I.Y. Clean up your clothes!

Hey Happy People,
Do you've got a great mess with all your doll-clothes too? I got a huge mess around here... It was unbelievable.... My mom said all the time to clean my clothes up, so I did. Me and my mom bought a closet from Ikea. We bought some boxes to storage my clothes in the closet. If you have a closet, you can just make/buy boxes for in there too! It's really handy. 
Me with my pretty mess!
Step 1: Throw all your doll clothes/hair accessories/shoes/food/things on the floor.

That's how I did it with all my dresses, pants, skirts and stuff.... 

Step 2: Put all your doll clothes/hair accessories/food and stuff, first in a box and then in you closet.
Some boxes on the floor
 Step 3: Put the boxes on in the closet!

Row 1
Row 2

Row 3

 Step 4: FINISHED! Okay, your totally ready!!!

This is a pic with me and my closet. A great place to play hide and seek :-%)

Hope you've got a great clean-up day!

Lots of love,

Pretty Lilly - an American Girl

P.S. I love the AG closet, but it doesn't fit in my dad's suitcase... Poor me.... :"-(

It includes a lot of things to make a restaurant, like how to set it up, to make drinks, and most important... to make food! It includes some supplies too, like some plates, AG money, some country posters, some paper bags and a lot more!

Some menu's, a gift card and a bag

For the spaghetti you need some yarn, red paint and foam.
For the pizza you need some foam, red paint and yarn

These are the supplies and.....

Last Minute Mothers Day Crafts

Hey Happy People,

Do you already have something for your mom? If you haven't got something, or if you just want another present here are 2 tips.

Tip 1

I bought a shower cream, a body lotion and a nail polish for my mom. I decorate it in the AG way. I love AG crafts. You can buy it online (click HERE) or at a crafts store like Michaels. I got the Posies Pad. I made my own design flowers and put a green ribon under it. I like the Posies Pad a lot.

The Posies Pad

Some Butterfly's 

Some Flowers.

Some flowers, leaves or butterfly's are sparkly!
Tip 2

Do you know your mom's favorite songs? You can make a CD with all her favorite music! Just make a playlist on iTunes or another music program. Then you can put it on a CD. And don't forget to make a pretty CD case with a pic of you and your mom on the front. =-D (click here for your project on AG crafts for a CD chase).

And I wish you all a ......

What did you made or bought for your mom? I love to hear it! 
Lots of love,

New McKenna app!

Hey Happy People,
I really like the GOTY (Girl Of The Year) of 2012 McKenna! I'm saving up for her starter collection. Just like every GOTY she got's 2 books and now a movie (link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agkbUnoe3Qc). But now she got an iPhone/iPod/iPad app! I really love the AG apps.

 Marie-Grace's and Cecile's app

Kanani's app

The Innerstar U app

And now the McKenna app!

It's a gymnastic game (of course)!! When I practiced 3 times I got 295.050 points. How many points do you got? I love to hear it.

Lots of Love,
Pretty Lilly - an American Girl (who's saving up for McKenna)

Delicious Dinner Set

Hey Happy People,
I bought the Dinner Table and the Delicious Dinner Set from AG! It was expensive.... When I saw the box from the Delicious Dinner Set I thought: "That's a small box...."

This is the small box
But when I opened it.....

....it looked great! I saw the strawberry-icecream, the plates and the lasagna slices! 
This is what it contains.

* 2 glasses
* 1 olive oil
* 1 pepper grinder
* 1 pitcher
* 1 shaker
and more....

* 2 plates
* 2 napkins
* 2 pieces bread
* 2 lasagna slices
* 1 pan
* 1 spatula
* 2 desserts
* 2 forks
* 2 spoons

I really like the lasagna slices, because you can't make it yourself and you see the layers! I like the salt very much too, because you can shake the salt in the bottle. And the pepper is very funny, because you can turn it around :D!

I know this is expensive,  but a lot of the stuff, you can't make yourself.
Marie and I would say....

It's *SO* delicious! Enjoy :D

See U later,
