This year's Barbie convention included a "Golden Ticket Drawing" at the opening night reception. 20 one-of-a-kind artists donated beautiful dolls that they'd created and all conventioneers were given 20 complimentary tickets for the drawing. You could place one ticket in each box or distribute the chances amoung a few or just one doll. (The tickets were actually golden in color and were pre-printed with our names)
My fellow blogger and roommate, Valerie, won one of the dolls. We were so excited for her.
This doll was designed by Natalia Sheppard of Natalia Designs.
