The bloom doesn't match for the Ghost Plant.

I can't tell from the photos, are the leaves fuzzy or smooth?

If fuzzy, the bloom resembles Echeveria Doris Taylor.

The blooms do look similar to E. 'Doris Taylor', but the leaves of Jelinda's plant look to be smooth.

Jelinda, use this link and look through the photos to see if something matches up. http://garden.org/plants/browse/plants/children/117125/

The plant isn't fuzzy,it's all smooth.In all the plants i looked at and it was a lot of plants,the blooms look like E.'runyonii' but i don't think the plant is a Topsy turvy,i have that one.The name that kept popping up every time i thought i found a plant that was close to it was E. Glauca.Is that a sempervivum,a Hen & bitty or chicks (the southern girl comes out)

I really does appear to be one of the Echeveria. We may not be able to tell until next year, when it has matured some.
It is not one of the hardy Sempervivum (Hen and Chicks).
