Paper Dolls

I absolutely LOVE paper dolls and I love making my own. Yesterday my daughter and I sat down and colored, cut out, and laminated our new paper dolls. The only thing that I don't like about paper dolls is the little tabs that are supposed to help the clothes stay on... they never work. My solution was not having tabs and just using a small amount of tacky putty to attach the clothes. (sorry about the poor quality of the pictures.) Enjoy!

skull potato stamps

I saw this idea on Martha Stewart and wanted to give it a try with my daughter and her cousin. I carved the skull into the potato for them and they each got to decorate their own spooky mini canvas bag to fill with treats. So fun. Enjoy!The finished bag.
