More Paper Dolls

Happy belated Thanksgiving to all of you here in the U.S. Did you have a good one? Mine was pretty cushy, I have to admit... didn't have to drive anywhere (family came to see me), didn't have to cook anything (the Farmboy did it), didn't have to wash a single dish (thanks to the MIL). I made the comment, that maybe surgery was the way to go just before every Thanksgiving and that sweet Farmboy said "NO!" He would rather make Thanksgiving dinner, again, than for me to have to have surgery again. Love that guy!

Okay, on to the pretties!

I've shown you the paper dolls I created for the Bella Paper Doll Swap (hosted by the sweet sister duo Carol and Elizabeth of Parasols & Mary Janes) here. Now let me show you what I received!

From Amy Powers of Inspire Company.

Sweet little thing, isn't she?! I was fortunate to meet Amy in a little boutique, down the street from the hotel, and she is just as sweet and charming as her little creation!

From Robin Sanchez.

Talk about being excited when I pulled this one out of the bag! I had found and linked her in my first doll post, if you remember. I didn't realize she was going to Silver Bella, much less in the swap!

From Lonnie Jenck of My Farmgirl Life.

Such a lovely Prom Queen and great packaging too!

From Kara Ward of My Studio Pink.
(thank you Wanda :P)

This Marie is fabulously dimensional, with her shadow box dress! So much to see in this one... love it!

From one of my Texas Bella sisters, Susan Skinner.

Isn't she such a sweetie! I'm pretty sure her robes are made from a dryer sheet... how resourceful and creative it that?!

Well, there you go! I think they all are just great and ready to be hung up in the studio.

Wishing you a beautiful Monday!

I don't want to be a huge wench, but Kara Ward's blog isn't that one..that is Jen K's. Her blog is Those dolls are all so cute. :)
