Vintage love and paperdolls

I worked at the book store this morning and found some awesome vintage books - 2 Ginn readers like I remember, an old falling apart the Volume Library full of all manner of subjects including children's poems and songs, a little Circus alphabet book, I hate to housekeep book with humorous illustrations, and a lime green paper shopping bag. My little pink cells are bubbling with ideas right now.
I am posting a paperdoll layout for the Eccentric Therapy blog - the challenge was to use a vintage paperdoll in a layout. I searched the thriftshops for paperdolls but couldn't locate any so ---- I used an old family photo and printed it on cardstock and then drew clothes for her a la 1956. I added appropriate vintage fabric scraps, a card of buttons, some classified ads from a 1955 Scottish magazine, a ribbon, and a fabulous rhinestone Scotty pin. The papers are Making Memories, Love Elsie, and Paper Adventures, and the stickers are 7gypsies.
