I'm Back From My Unofficial Break!

So I just looked on my blogger dashboard and noticed it's been OVER TWO WEEKS since I last posted! :( I am so sorry about that :( Don't worry, I'm not ever leaving this blog, and I just got busy and hadn't been able to post here :(
 But I will be back with more posts soon! So this post isn't entirely picture-less and boring, here's a quick photo of Nora: 

(I have no idea why the quality is so bad :( )

I know I do way too many apology posts, but I am truly sorry I have not posted in a long time :( I will try my best to do better, though :) 

Thank you for reading and have a great night :)

My "New" Felicity!

So after reading that title you are probably thinking: "Has Shelby-Grace lost her marbles? She already has a Felicity doll, so what did she go off and buy a new one for?" And the answer to that question is a long one, but here it is: So my mom and I out shopping at antique stores (we love vintage things) we stumbled upon a Felicity doll for a super good price! I have absolutely no idea how she got there (she isn't even Pleasant Company, so she must be made within the past 15 years--definitely not an antique) but since she was a good price, we went ahead and bought her, with the intent for her being part of a huge surprise coming soon here--on the 20th of May to be precise ;) She came with her original dress and book, and is overall in pretty good condition and only will be needing a little TLC ;) She probably won't be on here too much though, because she is only staying with us for a few months and is an exact twin to my original Felicity, but she may occasionally be featured here and there ;) So, goodnight, and I hope you enjoyed hearing about this temporary guest in my doll family! :)

Rebecca's Photoshoot

EDIT: This post is the one that was meant to be on SBATD for my Monday post, but I accidentally posted it here. I have re-posted this to SBATD since I don't have anything else prepared for my other post, but I won't be deleting this post because I don't want to remove all your kind comments you left ;) 

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great week! Today I decided to do another photoshoot, but this time with Rebecca ;) Here are the pictures: 

Thank you for reading!

My AGPC Challenge Two Entry!

Hi everyone! I hope you are all had a great weekend! :) So as you probably can tell from the title above ^^^, you will know that this post is my AGPC Challenge Two entry ;) 

Here is the picture I am entering:

Doll Entered In The Contest ~ Felicity (Historical Character)

The Story ~ Felicity has planned a huge, spring-themed outdoor party with her three best friends for her twelfth birthday, but where we live spring comes very late so on the day of her birthday a huge snowstorm hits, but instead of giving up on her party, Felicity and her friends make the most of the not-so-springy weather and have some fun playing in the snow! (**Note to Maddie**--I hope this is close enough the "Spring" theme for you! Like I said, spring comes super late where we live :( I also hope this featured Felicity enough! I wanted to include them all so it was hard to make sure she was the main focus of the photo :( If this picture does not meet all the guidelines, I can find another picture to enter:)

About this photo ~ I used my Nikon Coolpix L830 camera to take this photo :) Felicity's friend helping her build the snowman is Kirsten, a Historical Character, Mia, GOTY 2008, is the girl sitting on the front of the inner tube, and Cora, a Historical Character, is the girl behind her ;) Felicity is wearing the AG Snowboarding Outfit, and Kirsten is wearing a Springfield Dolls snowsuit with Addy's Meet Boots. Mia is wearing a hat and scarf from a craft sale, boots from Grace's Meet Outfit, the pants are from a AG winter set, and her shirt is from Our Generation ;) Oh, and Cora's vest is from the same craft sale Mia's hat and scarf were from :)
