Mischa's New Sundress & More

Mischa is visiting me right now and she wanted to post on here, so take it away, Mischa!

Hi everyone. First off, I got a new sundress yesterday! It's green with polkadots and is trimmed with purple (my favrite color) and yellow ribbon. I also got a maching purple headband. It's the pretty much same style as Chrissa's sundress. I love it! Shirley also got a sundress-hers is the Gwen Meet dress; we had some photos taken yesterday. Here's one of me:

And my sissy-I think she looks picture perfect here!

Also, guess what? I get to go to AGB next month! Grandlinda's Emily is coming, too, and so is Auntie Jenny's Mia :) Addy and Julie will both be coming/going home that day, too.

I'm helping Missy make a sundress for the new girl who will be coming. The dress is similar to mine only it's purple with flowers and butterflines and will have an A-line skirt. The new girl's name is Brooke and she has brown hair and green eyes (she's a #19). I asked Missy what she knows about her and I asked if I could be the first doll from here, to meet her. Here's what I know about Brooke. Her full name is Brooke Astrid Jennings and she's in the 6th grade (I hope she won't mind a 4th grader like me). She's gone to private school her whole life and is from a pretty welthy family, but like Samantha, she's kind and generus, not snobby. In Star Valley, Brooke will be going to the Primrose Academy for Young Ladies (in Daisy Hollow), like Samantha J., Samantha N., Nellie, Hope, Jenny and Bridget. I don't know anything else but I'll let you know when she comes-or maybe Susie will let her post about herself.

That's it for now.

PS. Here's one more photo of Shirley and me:

As Told By Susie

As you can probably see, I decided to change the title of my blog. "Happenings in and Out of Star Valley" was a long title and I wanted to shorten it. Plus this is my blog-I just let some of my friends post once in awhile, hehe. I also wanted to create my own title image.

One of my favorite cartoons is As Told By Ginger, so that's where my new blog title, "As Told By Susie" comes from. I even looked at some pics of Ginger and decided to try to do a similar type of pose. I tried a few different ones before going with the one you see in the blog title image. Here's the pose of Ginger that my pose is inspired from:

With the new title came changing the layout. I'm very indecisive about some things and so it took me a couple hours to figure out what I liked. I tried using a starry background but it wasn't working-though it was a pretty background...why can't you use your own background image on here? So, finally I decided on the current colors. What do you think of the new title and layout?

Here are a couple of other pics from my little photoshoot for the title image:

Who am I waving at?, lol

This looks like a pose for jeans ad

Lastly, here is the full view of my title-image pose. I really like how it came out :)

School's....Almost Out

School is dragging on...but we only have a week left! Last week, Jess brought her camera in and she set it up on Mrs. Halliwell's desk and did a candid camera. She aked some weird questions and it was funny! Well, until she got caught. She had to stay after the rest of the week, I guess.

We got math sheets back, last week and't do so well on mine. I have to study extra hard for the test coming up on Monday! Eek! I'm gonna fail, I know it. It gives me knots in my tummy just thinking about it :/ Kaya and I are going over to the Halliwell's tomorrow and maybe Nikki will study with me. Though she doesn't like studying and isn't looking forward to the test either. But she does pretty well in her classes. Maybe I'll call Marina and see if she wants to study with me, too, tomorrow. Studying with a friend is much better than alone! Marina, Gwen and I studied together in class, yesterday.

We also have a spelling test. I messed up on chocalate chocOlate when we spelled words out loud last week. choc-o-late...choc-o-late...choc-o-late...

In other news, nothing much is going on. Auntie Jenny's Julie is visiting. Right now she's with Jess and Kirsten. Jess says they're going to jam together on their guitars. Addy is staying with Auntie Jenny and her dolls. Auntie Jenny wasn't sure whether she wanted an Addy and Missy wasn't sure whether she wanted a Julie. She thinks she'll get Julie sometime, but her hair will be cut shorter, to match the books. A #50 and #19 are also on the list. Not sure who will come here first. I think Missy, Auntie Jenny and Grandlinda will go to AGB sometime this summer. If Missy gets someone there, it'll either be Julie or #19 and the other will come next year.

So...what do you guys think of my LMPT entries so far? Wait...maybe I don't want to know...I don't know if they're good or not. I mean I think they are but there's a lot of tough compatition. I highly doubt I'll win (I'm guessing who will win but won't say right now) but as long as someone out there likes my entries, it's good. Okay, I'll be sad if none of my photos place but...I guess we'll just have to see.


PS. Since this entry has to do with school, here's my ABC LMPT entry. Shirley and I were putting up "Happy June" on the class bullatin board.
