Altered Book : Paper Dolls

I just finished working in L's altered book "Paper Dolls".  Such a cute theme!
 For my first spread i started with some really cool dyed paper in pastel stripes.  The "doll" was from a Dior perfume add.  She was so pretty with roses on her hat.  I ended up changing her clothes - i mean afterall - the book is called paper dolls, right?  The skirt was actually a small purse covered with felt flowers from an Anthropologie catalog. so cute!
 Next i used some paper dolls of a different kind - these were  from a sheet of Victorian style "scrap".  i took each of the oval victorian ladies and added paper skirts.  The orange skirt is vintage trading stamps.  The white skirt is dictionary page with a purple-y under skirt cut from a catalog.  The background and chaise are from - you guessed it, an Anthro catalog!
For our sign in page - L cut out little paper dolls for us to decorate and attach to the back of the book.  My little gal got an appliqued sweater and brocade skirt cut down from clothes in the catalog!
