she's a real doll

A few months ago I got an e-mail from Lori over at Vintage Flair asked me if I would like to participate in a paper doll swap with her and Mendy. Of course I was interested! These are two girls who's art I often admire and who's taste suites me to a T. These two gathered a great group of 10 of us to create dolls and send them to each other. I am still waiting for a couple to arrive, but here are the girls I have so far. Let the paper doll party begin...

Hope Wallace (Paper Relics) sent these fabulous little witches to each of us. Mine is waiting to be attached to my Halloween banner I have been plotting and creating in my mind. I'll be sure and show photo's if and when I get it done.
Now you see why I love Lori's (Vintage Flair) style. I think she is so clever to use this vintage woman of style and grace. I find it fun to see everyone's style show through in the dolls they created.
This cutie below is from Melissa Lobdell (Little Melfie). Isn't she the sweetest little one?! I have to do something special with her. I am thinking she may grace the cover of my next journal.
This is Holly Stinnett's (Holly Loves Art) creation. She surely is the "hostess" of this happy bunch, why just look at that smashing party dress she is showing off.
Dawn (Oh So Pretty) made a doll that to me is {{oh so pretty}}. She is so delicate and graceful.
When I got the doll Jessi Nagy (scrappyjessi) I thought she was oh so sweet to make us all our own little princesses!
I love Mendy's (mendytexas) sweet girl so much I decide to add her to my Halloween decor. I added her to a glass tile block I spruced for my mantle.
Although I played with paper dolls as a girl, I must admit I was stumped at making one. Here's what I came up with, (still on my Marie kick). I made each girl with a different skirt and a different piece of jewelry at her waistline.
I am still waiting for two dolls and I'll post them as soon as they arrive. Thanks so much Lori and Mendy for including me in your escapades! It's always such fun to create as well as receive art from such talented, and friendly girls. Thanks to all of you for sending your special dolls my way! You guys are the best, and I can't wait to meet those of you attending Silver Bella in the weeks ahead.
