Barbie Convention 2012 is fast upon us and I know how much you are all looking forward to some great fun and spending time with your doll buds !

This year, a GOLDEN TICKET ceremony will be featured at the Bon Voyage party. The first of its kind, attendees will  have the chance to win a fabulous One of Kind creation donated from 20 talented artists.

Miniature Couturier, Hilda Westervelt had a marvelous idea for her donation . Inspired by the theme for convention (The Grand Tour), a “State Room” would be the perfect setting for a one of kind gift set offering. 

Hilda asked me if I would like to join her in creating a special presentation for the Golden Ticket ceremony.  Without hesitation I took to the task .  I always welcome a chance to work with Hilda. Her vision of how your doll should be dressed is nothing short of perfection!

Here is our contribution to the event :

A travel style box transformed into a beautiful State Room for a lady’s travels.  Features include:   Luxurious bed with flowing aqua canopy. Beautifully tufted mattress that lifts up to reveal a storage compartment for clothing and accessories.   Two stately club chairs upholstered in a vibrant floral pattern – perfect seating for our lovely occupant. Plush white carpet – so inviting ! Vase of colorful poppies on a clear acrylic table adding some spice to the room!  – So much more here to explore ! 

Our gorgeous traveller is none other than Barbie !  A #6 Lingerie Silkstone with customized hair and make up by Maryann Roy .  Always the consummate model, Barbie is dressed to perfection in a wardrobe fit for a princess!
