PPAG Assignment 1

Hey everyone! I have a super cool theme for this first assignment!


Yes, now I realize red isn't exactly a Spring color, but that's why I chose it- for a challenge! 
Here's what I would like to see:

  • Photos with plenty of light! Light is a key factor in good photography.
  • Red. Obviously! Have your doll (that same as in auditions) in a red dress, against red flowers, or a red backdrop. Be creative!
  • Please keep your editing to a minimum. I don't mind a little bit of text or some photos being lightened up a bit, but please, edit only a little bit.
Also, photos are due in one week, Tuesday, April 5th. Remember, e-mail or post your three best photos and leave the link to me.

Liberty Jane

Hey everyone! I am off to Florida (this is a timed post) with Felicity with me! Anyways, I want to share with you a video and photos of my purchase.

First, I love my items that I ordered! They are both very high quality and very cute and great for mixing and matching!

Here are some pictures!

I love this photo!

This is the skirt. It's ruffled and it has an elastic band at the top so it can stretch onto any doll. I really like this so I can fit it on my Madame Alexander dolls and on a bigger body AG doll.
These boots are super cute! They are darker than I expected, but I love them either way. The Moccasin Fringe boots are a good price and high quality too!

Have you ever ordered anything from Liberty Jane?

A Doll to Disney?

Hey everyone!

With much anticipation, I will be leaving for Disney and Universal tomorrow! And, I have a question for you. Should I bring Felicity to Florida with us? I don't want to have to carry her around the park, but I would like to take some photos of her hair. So what do you think?

Picture Perfect American Girl (contest! 'auditions' open!)

Hey everyone! I know how many of you were excited about me hosting a contest, so I decided to start my own fun AG contest for budding photographers!

The Picture Perfect American Girl Contest or the PPAG, is a blogging contest where girls can enter one of their dolls and take photos of that one special AG doll. The contest is focused on photography- best angles, macro, landscapes etc, although, one AG doll will always be your main focus.

Sound fun? Here's what you need to enter:
  • a camera
  • a blog (Wordpress, Blogger, etc. Anything you can write a post on!) or an e-mail (if you use e-mail, you must attach the 3 best photos)
  • 1 18" AG doll (you will only be taking photos of 1 doll)
  • a love for photography, blogging, and AG dolls!
    To enter, please create a post with the 3 best photos of your doll. They can be of anything- her headshot, a side view, her shoes, skirt- anything to show your a great photographer! Once I get 10 entries, we will start the contest. 

    In the contest, there will be 5 rounds (two will be eliminated each round) and a theme for each. Have a photoshoot corresponding with a theme, then post your 3 best photos, tell a little about each photo, and give me the link (if you use e-mail, send me an message). It's really simple!

    Now, for prizes! The one winner will get to host the next season with me- help me come up with theme ideas, judge photos, and receive a free blog design and award. 

    I hope you enter- this will be a fun contest!

    ps. also my giveaway is 2 posts below!

    Happy Mardi Gras! (100 Followers Please?)

    Hey everyone! I just want to wish you all a Happy Mardi Gras! To celebrate this occasion, here's a cool icon-

    That I made with my first Bokeh! :-)

    Also, I decided what I am going to order from Liberty Jane. However, I will wait until Friday (if I get good grades on my report card, my dad will pay shipping) to order my chosen items.

    Have a Very Happy Mardi Gras,

    ps. to clarify any confusion, my NEXT post will be my 250th post

    A Misc. Post

    Hey! This is a very Misc. post. I have many things to share, and I hope you can take them in all in one post!

    First, I would just like to apologize for not posting as often as I used, I am in some very time-consuming activities and have taken up a new hobby, Scrapbooking! However, I will continue to upload my SevenAGStars videos every Wednesday, and of course, keep posting on this blog!

    Secondly, I didn't make into the AGMA. And you know what? I'm not bummed about. Although, I enjoyed being part of the biggest AG YouTube contest, I have to admit, American Girl Project Runway was more fun and challenging. So, I hope to make it into that contest! Also, what if I started my own contest? Like the AGMA, but for Bloggers, with fun prizes. What do you think of that?

    Third, I got an e-mail today from Liberty Jane advertising their new products. They have added some new Buy It Now items, that I love! Like the Berry Ribbed Tank and Layered Skirt.
    I really love this outfit and I think it would look great with the Moccasin Fringe Boots that I've had my eye one.

    I really would like all 3 of these pieces, but together, it would be $34.98- and that doesn't even include shipping! I would love some of these pieces, but they're kind of expensive and I know I could make the shirt. 

    So what do you think? Do you think that I should start my own contest? Do you think $34.98 is really worth it? Do you think that there are other human life forms in the galaxy? Just kidding on the last one, but I would love to know your opinion on the other two.


    ps. could you pretty please help me get to 100 followers? :-)
