Frozen

We didn't go to see the Frozen movie when it came out in the fall of 2013, however, after hearing and reading many great reviews, I checked it out from the library last September. Robbie and I both truly enjoyed it! So when we stopped at a Disney store on our way to Florida a month before Christmas and spotted the Elsa and Anna dolls, I knew they would make perfect Christmas gifts for the twins (our then nine-year-old nieces).


I delivered the gifts in early December when I went down to see Pun'kin Natashia in the local theater production of It's a Wonderful Life. On my way home from that trip, I stopped at Scrappin' Goodtime and in the midst of the new product that had just arrived were some wonderful Frozen die cuts!! Of course, I purchased a few to use with the photos I'd just taken of the girls and their new dolls.

Paige's favorite character is Elsa . . .

and Laurie's favorite is Anna.

After the girls opened their gifts and played with them a little while, they brought our their Barbie clothes and put together other outfits for each of the dolls. I was so impressed with how well they found perfect outfits to match each doll's character and color choices!


Weren't those die cuts just the perfect accents for this page!

My granddaughter loves this movie, and can sing nearly all the songs by heart! What fun to find just the right embellishments when you needed them.
