*** edited to add supplies used-scroll down***

You probably wonder what in the world the title of this post means. It's the same thing as Matryoshka, it's how we used to call these dolls back home. I had few sets of these and used to play a lot with them. This stamp set brought a lot of childhood memories and I just had to have it.
Besides My Matryoshka set from the new occassions mini I used the pretty in pink satin ribbon and sweet pea designer paper, as well the scallop trim edge punch:)
Thanks for stopping by! I need to head to bed as it's almost 1am and I need to be at work in 6.5 hrs.
I will post the supplies later.
