Big Girl Paper Dolls!

Well I mentioned to you all that I went back to my niece's house to decorate her daughter's room. She just turned 3 and is just a doll. I couldn't wait to get started. Let me tell you we had ALOT to do to this room. The walls were painted and that is it! I'm not going to show it all to you right now (mostly because I had to leave before I got pics) but here is a tease... a little bit of art we made for the room.

 This is made on a 12 x 12 piece of MDF and with scrapbook papers and my Silhouette.
 You can see I inked the edges of the page. Adorable glitter paper.
I channeled my inner Cinderella when making this one! :) Don't these shoes look perfect for dancing with a prince? Can you see the polka dot swiss peeking out of her dress?

I actually made 4 of them but only have pictures of 2 for now.


This was so much fun to do... took me back to my childhood playing with paperdolls.
I want to live in this room! Anyway as soon as I get pictures I will post them. For now a little peek to make you drool. So did you LOVE paperdolls when you were a kid?
If you want to see the two others I made go here.

Love, love, love! So adorable and love the papers you chose to work with. You need an etsy account.:) Can't wait to see the other two. Would be most difficult to choose which is the better, both so darn cute!!!!
