So let's see what the team are giving us for inspiration this week!....

First up, we have our amazing Guest Designer Mirella joining in with this challenge...

Mirella....Hi! First of all I would like to thank the team for inviting me to Guest Design here at Polkadoodles Digi Choosday challenge. I'm really honoured!!! So this week's theme is "Fashion Fun". For me, being Fashion forward is dressing with whatever clothes I am comfortable with, wearing what it suits me and whatever I'm in the mood for! and rock it! that's why I chose "Dollie shop" to work with. She's fashionable but she is really confident wearing her clothes and has attitude!!!. The sentiment is one of my favourites, I love it and it summarises this week's theme for me. I used papers from the Polkadoodles store (the background pink) and from my stash. 
Zoe - I had great fun this week, I admit I coloured many images that would work for this challenge but decided on this fun, fab and funky girl - she can be found in the Dollie Goes East collection but you can also find her here too if you just want the digis. I coloured her with a mix of markers including the fabulous Graph It's. I also used papers and sentiment from the collection which I'm finding to be so versatile.
Sally - It's Digi Choosday once again! Wow time flies!  Today's digi challenge is "Fashion Forward" so I picked this great digi image and coloured her with my Graph'it markers.  I chose some backing papers from the Dollie Daydream CD Rom. Matted them on black cardstock.  The sentiment is part of the image, so I made it separate and matted on some more black cardstock.
Scatty Jan here using the lovely Dollie Daydream - Glitz Digistamp  there really are some beauties in the store right now I think she is one of my fav's but then everytime I colour one up I change my mind :-). I have coloured with promarkers and mounted onto card - a little black soot distress ink added xx
Anjie - On my card this week the image is Dollie Daydream - Glitz Digistamp and is coloured with Graph'It Markers. You can also find the image in the new Etsy Store, where there are lots of lovely new images from Nikky Hall. The papers are from the Studio 12 CD-rom Picknix Collection 2 Gingerbread Twist which just goes to show Christmas CD's aren't just for Christmas! The sentiment is from the Dollie Daydream BONUS EDITION Girl Talk Collection. The rolled roses are using the same papers, and the ribbon, other flower and feathers are from my stash. The die cut shoe is the Tattered Lace die, High Heel Glam.
Debbi - Something a little different from me today and have made a giant doll tag. The background and also the dress and shoes were made using the 'Tail Feather collection'. The flowers where made using the Build a Fleur section of the 'Dollie Daydream - Girl Talk Collection'. For the 'skin' I used a "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" backing paper.

Yvonne - Hello there, I'm new and I am delighted to be here, so thank you for having me! I loved making this weeks challenge and couldn't have asked for a better theme. I used a digi stamp from Dollie Goes East collection or you can get her from the new Etsy Store where there are loads of gorgeous images to choose from! I coloured her with my Graph'It markers. The background papers are from Dollie Daydreams - Girl Talk Collection CD Rom which I printed onto Ivory Centura cardstock for a wee bit of shimmer. The sentiment is also from the Girl talk collection, which I coloured with Pan Pastel. The backing card, ribbon, charm and gems are from my stash and the die is a Signature Die from Joanna Sheen, Heart Bunting.
Jo- I have used the very fashionable Glitz digi for this challenge coloured with copics. I tried out a new technique for me, where I die cut around part of the image, I wanted it to look almost like she was walking out of the frame plus it shows off her fabulous hat :) There's more on the technique on my blog. I have also used a fab digi paper from the Love Will Flourish bundle.
Susan This week I made a door hanger using papers from Dollie Daydream now available as download and one of the Fredericka images, I used my Graph'it Markers to colour her .The flowers I dipped in my melt pot.

WoWSER!! Havent the team turned out some amazing projects this week!! STUNNING!
