Paper dolls!

Finished paper dolls (for the same swap as the mermaids--you can see one of the
finished mermaids HERE.)  I took several pictures, since what's the point of making
paper dolls, if you don't PLAY with them??

The swapped pages will be bound into a book . . . four of my pages are similar,
but different.  This is the front, with a stitched vellum pocket to hold the doll and
clothing.
The back of the pages (the letters are glittery), the backgrounds are all
spritzy and inky, stamped with Rogue Redhead Designs awesome
background stamps.

wearing some Gelli print clothes
That was fun.  At least for me--but I hope you had fun, too. 

The girl child and I are out of town at the moment--I will be back to blog
visit you next week.  See you soon! :)
