Between photo shoots, Joy and her sister Ellie, and friend Lanie hang out and play cards in Joy's room.  In this photo they get caught allegedly playing Uno for money.  

Photo Number Three

Stephanie has to make a last-minute run for Starbucks before her photo shoot- What a diva! 

Photo Number Four

After getting Kanani to stand in the grass with the lighting just right, Kanani fell over (thanks a lot, Kanani). Trip, sprawl, doll took a fall.

Photo Number Five

One day Samantha, Julie, and Kanani were at ballet class. They were all practicing their twirls for the upcoming ballet recital when Julie lost her balance and they all 3 fell like a line of dominoes!............ P.S. The ballet recital turned out BEAUTIFULLY!!!

Photo Number Six

Ruthie decides to try her hand at balancing a few of her favorite dishes while waiting for her photo shoot.

Photo Number Seven

Jenna sneaks off between photo shoots to see if she can take a few swings out on the on-site golf course before she is needed again.

Photo Number Eight

Felicity is a bit of a photographer, and also loves to make movies. 
Director, photographer, she loves it all!

Photo Number Nine

Behind Scenes Kirsten has no choice but to do school...

Photo Number Ten

Whenever Ruthie's not getting her picture taken, she's usually designing and making clothes. She loves fashion! She wants to be a fashion designer when she grows up.

Photo Number Eleven

Samantha whispers something in the dog's ear as she walks by.

Photo Number Twelve

It's a very exciting day at the races. How did it all start you may wonder? Well in the Activity 1 Photo-shoot, Laura was posing on her horse UNTIL...... dolls came into the scene declaring they race in a dolly derby on an animal of their choice. Okay! The race is just to begin! But wait look.......
the dolls are on animals! Look at Ella, she's on a big poodle! The wind is whipping through their hair as they speed around and around. Who do YOU think will win? 

Photo Number Thirteen

Behind the Scenes with Mia: I'm usually very busy. Especially with make-up and stuff :)

Photo Number Fourteen

When I'm not taking Ella's picture she can almost always be found in the camper with Lanie and Claire.  Ella, Lanie, and Claire love to hang out together.  They eat, joke around, and play with Lanie's bunny, Lulu.

Photo Number Fifteen

A couple days ago I was reading a book on my bed 
when I heard a loud noise. I looked up at my desk
 and what did I find? Hmm.... To me it looks like
 someone (Cara) pushed my cousin's doll over. Busted!

Photo Number Sixteen

Jessica makes clothes behind the scenes. A 13 year old girl can never have enough clothes, (or anyone!) right? So, she learned to sew from me, and whenever I go into the sewing room, I already hear the machine whirring away. Here is a picture of her sewing a pair of jeans. She is very concentrated!

Photo Number Seventeen

This is a photo from behind the scenes of my last round -- fashion is fabulous.  Before I could model my fierce dress, I had to get my hair and makeup fixed so I could be ready for my close up!

Photo Number Eighteen

Sunny entered an acting, singing, and modeling contest, this is a picture of her getting ready for the final acting round. She is reading a book on drama, while trying to brush her hair, and quench her thirst. Incidentally, Sunny is giving one of my other dolls acting lessons. The only thing Rilla (the doll she's teaching) wants to know, is how Sunny gets lead roles. Sunny hates to tell her the only thing you need for stardom is long blonde hair!

Photo Number Nineteen

OOPS!  Josie was being photographed for the cover of  "Fashion Weekly" magazine.   Suddenly, there was a loud crash.  Maya, the lighting tech,  had tripped over a chord and fallen into the "shot".   Maya laughed so hard, she cried.  So did the crew.  :) No dolls were harmed in the making of this photo.

Photo Number Twenty

Elizabeth decided to help her human with yard work by mowing the lawn. It is harder than it looks! Luckily, her friends were around to help her. Molly, Susan, and Kit take off running after her; Kaya tries to lasso the mower and Julie jumps out of the way just before the mower gets her. *No dolls were harmed in the making of this picture.*

Photo Number Twenty-One

Dear Diary,

So, I'm in the hair salon getting ready for ANTM filming right now and I'm reading PEOPLE Magazine. I just stumbled upon THE most embarrassing, most HUMILIATING article about me!! When I saw the article, I was like 'Ohh dear gawd help me!' 

"This butt look familiar? While going to her car after a nail salon visit, Sarah Murdoch drops her keys, falls in the process and rips the back of her skirt! How embarrassing!" is what it stated.  I was hoping so badly the paparazzi wouldn't notice!! There was a rock in front of me annnnd I tripped! Now the whole world is going to think I'm clumsy. Wonderful! Worst part is, I chose to wear an outfit similar to the pic in that article that was taken last week. I don't ever want to step foot outside now hahahaaa!

Photo Number Twenty-Two

When we did the fashion photo shoot during the last round, I could tell Charlie was getting really tired of posing for all of the pictures. I decided to give her a little break. She was so excited!  She grabbed my daughter's magnifying glass and set out exploring the backyard (one of her favorite things to do). 

    After a while, when she hadn't come back, I went to look for her.  I finally found her sitting in her favorite climbing tree.  What a sight she was!  Her skirt was all scrunched up around her, her hair was a tangled mess, and her face was smudged with dirt.  She was very busy leaning over a tree branch, observing a spider web through her magnifying glass. I just had to take a picture. :)  I'm glad I got there when I did, because she nearly fell out of the tree shortly after this photo was taken. Thankfully, I was there to catch her!

    Needless to say, it took a while to get her cleaned up for the rest of the fashion photos. She was very compliant, but I could tell she was relieved when that round was over! Within minutes, she was back in her comfy jeans. :)

Photo Number Twenty-Three

Rapunzel rushes down clinging to a vine, making sure no one is watching her.
"Phew! After all this fuss about my new movie, I never get a chance to get away.
It's so tiring to take pictures, I think I'll enjoy this wonderful moment." 

Photo Number Twenty-Four

Felicity takes an anxious peek from behind the curtains as she excitedly awaits her moment on stage.

Anonymous said...

Wow! This is a hard decision!! What happened to all the other entries?!?! Wasn't there 42 in the first one?

Nora Demington said...

Yep, there are a lot less entries now. We had 43 in the first round.

Well 3 people won the other rounds and don't have to keep playing. But all of the others are either busy, lost interest, or didn't like this round's theme, we guess. Haha. That's life!
