The Secret Princess Part 2

Hey girls! :) Part 2 is finally here, sorry for the long wait!  And after getting some survey results back, I will probably be posting more hair/craft tutorials ASAP! :D (Right after I finish this photostory!)
Ari woke up.  She was no longer in the forest, but in a bed.

"Where am I?" asked Ari, sitting up.  She looked around.  She was in a fancy room, and a girl no older then her with short blond hair pulled into three pigtails and round glasses walked towards her.

"Oh your awake, princess!"  "Princess?  Wait--what?" I asked.  Then it all came back to me.

"Why, yes dear.  Now why don't you dress?  The Queen requests your presence immediately."

The girl sat some a long pink dress with matching shoes & bow on my bed.  I changed into the dress.

The girl helped me with the shoes.  "Now princess, let me do your hair."  I wanted to object, I had done my hair many times, but I didn't want to be rude.

She brushed carefully through the curls, and recurled them as she finished.  She stuck the bow in.

"Such beautiful hair you have," the girl commented.  "Just like your mother."  "My mother?" I asked, turning around.  "Oh dear me, nevermind."

"Let me make your bed," the girl said.  "Your mother is waiting for you in the breakfast room.  It's outside and around the corner."

Ari headed outside.  What will my mother say? she thought Is this all just a joke?  Who am I?

Ari stopped when she saw a girl.  The girl looked a bit older then her and she had long, black hair pulled back with a bow.



"Arianna?  Is that you?" the girl asked softly.  "Yes, but who are you?"  "I'm Violet," she said, "I know it may be hard to believe, but I'm your sister."  "We look nothing alike though!" I said.

"I know," she said nodding, "but I need to tell you--your in danger."

"I've been hearing this all day!" Ari cried.  "Why am I even in danger?"  "When you were born," Violet began wistfully, "you were given the power of fire, like father.  I was given the power of fire, like mother."  "Where's our dad then?" Ari asked her.

A tear rolled down her cheek.  "He died," she said. "Why?  How?" Ari cried.  "The evil queen did it," Violet said.  "That's how dangerous fire is.  After he died, mother sent you away.  A servant put you in the river in a basket, and you ended up...well wherever you ended up."  Violet sighed.  "Well, I have to go," Ari said, "I need to meet with the Queen--I mean mother!"
How did you like Part 2?  :) Part 3 coming soon! :D

The Secret Princess Part 1

Like usual, Ari went outside to go exploring.  Ari thought she was just a normal adopted girl who had a normal life, but little did she know that very day her life would change.
"It's so pretty out," said Ari, pulling out her camera to snap a picture.  

She turned towards the river to snap the picture!


Feeling a bit tired, Ari sat down.  
She looked around and without knowing, Ari dozed off.

A few hours later, Ari was woken by a start.  "Who are you?" said Ari, a bit scared.  A girl that looked no older then her stood above her, with long brown hair pulled up and a white silky dress.

"Don't worry," the girl said, "my name is Sapphire, and I'm here to help you."

Ari stood up and took a step backwards.  "Where did you come from? And why are you here?"  "Well," Sapphire sighed, "there's no easy way to say this.  You know how your adopted?" Ari nodded.  "Well, your real mother is a Queen.  And I'm a nymph, which is like a fairy but no wings.  I work for your mother, you see your not a normal girl.  You are the princess, the heir to the throne.  Your mother sent you to the real word because your in danger."


"I am?" Ari asked.  Sapphire nodded.  "But now, she needs your help.  You have something very important that was dangerous for you. You need to come back, your mother needs you."

Ari looked up.  "How can I be sure you aren't just making all this up?"  

"Come with me," said Sapphire, taking Ari's hand.

((Sorry for the brightness ^_^))
"Look into the water," Sapphire said, "what do you see?"  "My reflection," Ari said doubtfully.  "Look closer," said Sapphire.  

"I see a crown!" Ari said, "on my head." Sapphire nodded.  "Only the royals' reflections appear with a crown.  Now touch the reflection."  Ari did as told.  Everything went black!
CLIFFHANGER! :)
((Sorry for my foot in the way btw xD)

I got the nymph idea from Midsummer's Magic by basilmentos :)
Hope you guys enjoyed!  Stay tuned for Part 2 coming soon! :D

Valentine & Ruthie's Birthday Party! -Revised 5-17-14-


Hey girls!  Did you have a fun Valentine's Day? :) I sure did--Valentine's Day is always a fun holiday!  Here's what happened during the Ruthie's birthday party with the dolls! :)
It was a bright, cheerful afternoon and the dolls were setting up for Ruthie's surprise birthday party!

Kit and Sydney Lee were in charge of the lunch & snacks--which had fruit, some dishes like hamburgers and soup, and a side-dish to go along with it.  Around it were some yummy treats! :) 

Next to the food were the stack of presents waiting for Ruthie to open.

Mallory and Saige, dressed in the height of fashion (of course) were chatting about their presents to Ruthie.

Caroline and Molly talked about the buffet--the treats looked so good!

Kit hissed, "I see her, here she comes!"

Ruthie opened the door.  "Surprise!" all the girls cried.  Ruthie held her hand up to her mouth.

"All this for me?" asked Ruthie, smiling.  The dolls nodded.

The dolls start going through the buffet and none of the food was left afterwards! ;)

Next, it was time to open presents.  All the dolls gathered around Ruthie.

Mallory handed Ruthie the first present

It was from Molly!  Ruthie tore open the neatly wrapped gift.

It was a book about crafts!  "Thank you so much, Molly!" cried Ruthie, paging through the book.

The next present was from Caroline

Ruthie gasped. "101 Crafts to do on a Rainy Day!" cried Ruthie, "I've always wanted it!"

She read the back—and couldn't wait to begin the book!

The next present was from Sydney Lee and Kit—a bracelet!  "It's a tradition," Kit explained, "every doll gets one on her birthday!  Syd and I make them!"

"Perfect fit!" said Ruthie, adjusting the bracelet on

Next was Saige's present!  Ruthie carefully removed the card and tore into the gift

"A Designs by Me craft book!" cried Ruthie.  "Thanks so much!"

The next gift was from Mallory.  "It's a bow I made!" Mal explained.  "I love it!" cried Ruthie. "My favorite colors!"

"Perfect fit!" said Ruthie, trying it on.

The last gift was neatly wrapped with heart wrapping paper, with a white envelope on it.

First Ruthie opened the card

"Thanks girls!" cried Ruthie

She tore the gift open and gave a squeal of delight.  "A mini doll!" cried Ruthie, "how did you guys know I wanted her?  And that I wanted to name her Ruth,"
 seeing the sticker that said Ruthie.

Ruthie stared admiringly at the beautiful doll

Ruthie was so excited about her present!
I hope you enjoyed the photo story!  More fun posts coming in the future :)
Oh and also, just let me know if you would like to see a tutorial on how to make the doll-sized bow or the doll-sized books! :)
Happy (late) Valentine's day!
~Hope and Ruthie!
