ATC Paper Dolls!

Nathalie's hosting an ATC Paper Prayer Doll Swap on Christian Paper Artists.
It's a two for two swap and here are mine.
The tiny white spots on the leaves of this Nandina are because we had our house painted last month... not bugs! This one below is my fave.... she's out of an old children's book.
She has carrot legs!
Both dolls have satchels on their backs with prayers in them... P.S. on Monday the 23rd.... I just have to say that I feel so badly for the old children's book mom with the carrot legs. No one seems to like her.... everyone likes the pretty girl best. I think carrot legs used too much baby oil with iodine in it when in the sun as a young girl ....

Your ATC dolls are brilliant and all the more sweet and special with prayer sachels!!! I really like the barefoot girl, but carrot legs are pretty cool too ;) Fun swap this will be!
