DIVA Challenge #196 All Dolled Up

This weeks challenge is brought to us by CZT, Emily Classon.  Emily has the cutest little 4 year old girl that I see on her Facebook posts and she says her life is surrounded by dolls.  As the mother of two adult daughters, I remember those days fondly when we were surrounded by dolls of all kinds too!  As a little girl, I loved to play with paper dolls at my grandmas house....good memories!  My oldest daughter is expecting her first child, and our first grandchild in Feb, 2015, so I am looking forward to be surrounded by dolls again

I have always loved the Russian stacking dolls with their bright colors and patterns.  I used that for my inspiration.................
