I love Camp DD’s theme this week, don’t you? With how obssessed I am with Disney (and princesses) I knew this week would be great for me as well.
This post, however is not exactly part of Camp, but the theme gave me the idea! So this post is something that I used my imagination with and pretty much made up- not part of Camp 😉
In honor of the newborn Princess- a Ball was thrown in her honor!
Several guests were invited to share the Royal Family’s special moment.
The orchestra was playing happy music, the guests were dancing, eating, and talking. It was certainly a special night!
Kanani grabbed a plate and tried to decide what to eat, while Josefina grabbed a cookie.
Saige- “I’m not too good at dancing Kirsten, I hope you don’t mind.”
Kirsten- “I don’t mind at al- Ouch!”
Saige- “Oh, I’m sorry!”
Kirsten- “It’s okay- just follow my lead.”
Later on, the guests lined up for a group dance.
They twirled around and switched places to some fast and happy music
They danced and danced!
The Princess Annika and her younger sister, Princess Caroline watched their guests spin around to the music.
Princess Annika- “Our guests seem to be having a lovely time.”
Princess Caroline- “Yes, indeed! And the Ball Room looks beautiful, does it not?”
Princess Annika- “Yes, it does. Sister, dear, you should go fetch Daisy now. It is nearly time for me to make the introduction.”
Princess Caroline- “Oh, yes, of course!”
Princess Annika- “My people- As your Princess it is my duty to make all announcements and introductions until my mother- the Queen- is able to do so. Now without further ado- please welcome my new baby sister- and your new Princess, Daisy!”
Princess Caroline brought out Princess Daisy. She was a perfect little angel!
Princess Annika and her sister, Caroline, both held their new little sister up together. The guests were thrilled!
Everyone- “Hoorah for Princess Daisy!!!”
Have your dolls ever been a “Princess” before?
Yay! My prize for winning in Natalie’s Photo Challenge (at Doll Diaries) has finally arrived! I took a couple of pictures so you could see
It was inside a cute little Hello Kitty bag and sealed with a “J” sticker! “J” for my name- Hehe! 😀
How cute! A little Tote Bag! Inside the Tote Bag was a couple of Doll Diaries business cards and some Build-A-Bear stickers! Her business cards are adorable- I get mine from the same company 😀
That Tote is just too cute! I’ll have to take some pictures of my dolls with it
Do your dolls like Tote Bags? What do they use them for?
Howdy, Ya’ll!! I hope you all had a fantastic week!
Sorry about not posting yesterday, but we had some technical difficulties so I couldn’t post. But I’m posting now! Hehe!! 😀
Well, I’m going to turn it over to the dolls now- Enjoy!
Saige- “Alright, Annika- it’s time to saddle up!”
Annika- “Are you sure I should be jumping already?”
Felicity- “Don’t worry, Annika! You were destined to ride! You’re just about as good as riding as I am. I’ll help you up.”
Felicity- “Remember to keep your heels down just like this.”
Saige- “And relax in the saddle- don’t be stiff!”
Felicity- “And keep your left hand at your side- don’t let it go all over the place!”
Annika was very nervous to do jumping, but if her sisters said it was alright and believed in her- then she would try.
Annika got Penny into a nice trot as they approached the first jump.
Annika- “Come on, Penny girl! You can do it!”
They landed the first jump!
As they approached the second jump Annika started to stiffen up- she was so scared! “No!”, she thought to herself, “I can’t stiffen up! We’ll make it!”
They cleared the second jump easily!
Annika- “I did it, I did it!!! Oh, good girl, Penny!” She smiled the biggest smile 😀
Saige- Oh, Annika!! You did GREAT!! I always knew you could do it!!
Annika- “Hehe-Thank you, Saige!”
Felicity- “Annika you cleared that last jump splendidly! I am so proud of you!”
Annika- “Thank you, Lissie! Thank you both for being such good and supportive sisters!”
Annika- “I think Penny and I make a great team!” Annika was so proud of herself!
The three girls walked towards the stables. They were all so happy and proud- especially Annika
Have your dolls ever been jumping before?
Ok, I just have to say that I LOVE this week’s theme at Camp Doll Diaries [http://dolldiaries.com/horse-feeding-fun-for-you-and-your-dolls/]! It’s all about HORSES!!! If you know me really well, then you know that I LOVE horses and that they’re my favorite animal 😀
All of my “daughters” love horses, too, but three of them love them as much as me (which is A LOT!). When they heard what the theme was this week they were so thrilled!
All of the girls in Little Lilacs Cabin had just finished putting on their boots and were chatting away.
Addy- “Girls- May I have your attention, please?”
All of the excited faces turned to Cabin Leader, Addy.
Addy- “Thank you. Now, before we head off to the Stables we have some quick rules to go over. Rule #1: We want you all to have a “buddy”, so get into groups of two, please. Rule #2: When at the stables please be very calm and don’t be afraid. Horses can sense fear and if they do, it might make them a little jittery. Rule #3: Listen closely to what Cabin Leaders Saige and Felicity will be telling you. They will tell you all about the horses and how to care for them. Rule#4: Please control yourself. If one of you girls are anxious to pet the horse when it’s not yet time, please be patient. You will each get a chance to pet it. Is everything clear?”
Everyone- “Yes, Addy!”
Addy- “Good, then let’s head over to the Stables!”
After quite a while they reached the Stables. Saige was there to greet them along with Felicity.
Saige- “Hi girls! Welcome to the Stables! This is the sweet horse we’ll be looking at today. Her name is Penny and she is the perfect horse for any beginner rider. Please gather around and Felicity and I will tell you all you need to know.”
Saige and Felicity told them all about the tack such as- saddles, bridles, bits, horse shoes, and boots. They told them about the care supplies for horses such as all the different types of brushes, curry combs, fly spray, conditioner, and fly masks. They also told them how to treat a horse if they get hurt.
Saige- “And now I need a volunteer to groom Penny.”
Annika, who had never been around a horse before (although she loves them) offered excitedly!
Annika brushed through Penny’s mane until it was all nice and pretty. It was her dream come true to be around a horse
Felicity- “You’re doing very well, Annika!”
Saige- “She looks beautiful! Nice job!”
Annika- “Thank you!”
Felicity- “Why don’t you give her an apple for being such a good girl?”
Annika gasped- “Can I?”
Felicity- “Of course!”
Annika- “There you go, Penny. That’s a good girl.”
Saige- “Well, who’s ready to saddle up?”
And that is where we end Part 1!
So, how did you like it? Don’t you feel so happy for Annika? It kind of reminds me of myself
And in case you’re wondering you can see a couple of the things I made. I made some apples out of Model Magic Clay, I used Easter Grass for some hay, and the rest you haven’t seen- yet 😀
I hope you’re all having a great week!
Oh! and one more question- What have your dolls been doing at Camp?
Annika has been officially enrolled at Camp Doll Diaries today! She’s excited, but also nervous 😉
It was a beautifiul day at Camp today. The sun was shining, the sky was blue, and birds were singing. Rebecca and Annika didn’t want to be outside much because it was too hot out. Some of the other girls went river rafting, others went riding, and a few more went for a hike. Rebecca asked Annika if she wanted to do a craft.
“Sure! That sounds like fun!” Annika answered. So they set off to the Crafting Cabin.
Rebecca- “Let’s make sure we’re going the right way. I’m still finding my way around here.”
The girls looked at the Camp Sign and found they were going the right way.
After walking a bit more they finally came to the Crafting Cabin!
Little Lilacs Cabin Leader, Felicity was running the craft table today.
Felicity- “Hi Rebecca, hi Annika! Want to make some decorative candles for your cabin?”
Both- “Ok! What do we need?”
After about 20-25 minutes had passed, the two girls had made some lovely candles.
Felicity- “Your candles look great, girls! I couldn’t have done better myself!”
Both- “Thank you, Lissie!”
Here’s Rebecca’s candle- she made an apple scented candle!
And here is Annika’s candle- hers is vanilla scented
I hope you enjoyed the post! These candles were so much fun to make and you can make them, too! Here’s a basic explanation on how to make it:
Cut a paper towel tube to a good size for a doll candle.
Cut a strip of colored fun foam to go around it and glue it on.
Next, trace the tube on a candle colored piece of fun foam and glue on your piece.
For the flame make some squiggles on fire colored fun foam. Cut it out and glue on.
Find some fun pom-poms and decorate! Use your imagination!
*Note- I used a hot glue gun for everything. Be very careful when gluing so you don’t burn yourself! Also, I glued on my pom-poms ;)*
It was dark and silent and the audience waited patiently for the performers to go on.
After what seemed like forever their host finally came out-
“Good Evening, Campers! Thank you for joining us tonight. I am your host Felicity and I think it’s time to get started! First we present Kanani Akina doing the Hula Dance!” Felicity finished and everyone clapped.
Kanani danced and danced!
“Are we on next, Kirsten?” Rebecca asked.
“I think so, why are you so nervous? I thought you would love doing this?” Kirsten replied.
“I do, but I’m just not used to it.” Said Rebecca.
Everyone loved Kanani’s dance!
“Hi girls! How did I do?” Kanani asked when she had caught her breath.
“You were wonderful!” said Saige.
“Good job, Kanani!” Kirsten said.
“Were there a lot of people out there?” asked Rebecca.
Although Rebecca had major stage fright- she did great!
Saige showed her painting skills.
“And that’s how you make shadows!” Saige said.
Everyone received an award!
“Saige, you get first prize! Your prize is a Merida Vinylmation from the Disney Store!” Felicity said.
“Kanani, you get second place! Your prize is a brand new Belle Vinylmation from the Disney Store!”
“Kirsten, you get a Cinderella Vinylmation.”
“And Rebecca, you get a Rapunzel Vinylmation.”
“CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE!!” Felicity shouted and the whole audience cheered and clapped! It was a great Talent Show

Hi! Today my dolls started camp! This is only part one of 2 or 3 so more will be coming later today (hopefully)!
I’ll be the “narrator” and tell you what they’ve done so far 😉
Felicity, Addy, and Saige are all camp/cabin leaders. Felicity takes the registration forms and helps them check-in.
“Hi! Welcome to Camp! My name is Felicity and I am one of your cabin leaders. Just write your name and cabin name on the blanks to sign-in.” Felicity said.
After they had checked in the campers went to the next table to pick up their visors and name badges.
Felicity started going through the registration forms after her job was done.
“Hi campers! My name is Saige and I am another one of your cabin leaders. I’m going to take you to your cabin now, so pair up with someone (just in case) and follow me!” said Saige.
After walking for a bit they had come to their cabin at last!
Kanani and Caroline had arrived first so they decided to rest for a bit while they waited for the others to arrive.
“Oh, hi! We’re watching cartoons- wanna join us?” Asked Kanani.
“There’s no time for cartoons at present. We have to go over some rules so gather around!” Saige said, getting their attention.
“Rule #1: Stay with at least ONE room mate at all times. Don’t go anywhere alone- there are wild animals out there and the woods are big so it’s very easy to get lost. We have signs all around camp telling you where to go, but they stop at a certain point in the woods, so stay close by.” Saige explained.
“Rule #2: Bed time is at 9:00. If one of us camp leaders or counselors see you outside after that time- you will-well let’s just say you’ll get a talk from one of us. You may get punished depending on what you were doing. However, if you were going to the bathroom then that’s understandable and you won’t get punished.” Saige continued telling and explaining rules to everyone for about 20 more minutes.
“And last, but not least- your cabin code! Each of our cabins have a code that they have to follow. This is ours:
And this is where we end part 1! Tune in later for more Camp FUN! 😀
