Thank you Lizzie, welcome Vel!

It's MAY! Yep, we are wrapping up the April challenges and announcing our winners, and the festivities for May have kicked off, BUT, saying goodbye to April also means we bid adieu (but not goodbye!) to our wonderful Guest Design Dollie, LIZZIE! She added just the right about of spunky to our April challenges, and we hope you all enjoyed the projects - we've certainly enjoyed having her in the Dollhouse! Lizzie also just had a GORGEOUS baby boy, so we wish her the best and hope she's enjoying time with her new little one. Visit her blog, Oh, Snap!, and see what she's up to!

This means we have a NEW Guest Dollie for the month, and we are thrilled to introduce you to the mad stylings of VEL! She's been playing along with our challenges for a while, and we love the way she thinks outside of the box! She rocks the vintage/shabby chic, her clean and simple creations are fantastic, and she's recently falling in love with the new Alterations dies from t!m holtz! :) understandably so! Vel decided to use the combo from yesterday's Color Challenge, and created this little beauty:

LOVE those giant scallops, and that fabby Cosmo Cricket paper! Vel's already geared up to have lots of fun with the Dollies! I'm attending CKC in Buffalo with her in a couple of weeks, so I'll be able to tell you if she's as awesome in person as she seems in the blogosphere! I can't wait!

Vel, welcome to the Dollhouse!
(Folks, I highly encourage you to drop by her blog, Halcyon Dreams, and show her some true Dollie love!)

We'll be back a little later with the new ELEMENTS CHALLENGE, and on Wednesday with something you won't want to miss!
