“How many memories are broughtback to me by this new collection by Graphic 45. Penny's Paper Doll Family takes me to my childhood, when I spent so many hours trimming paper dolls.

I played with them and their dresses. I made real full-fledged families in which I recreated real life-woke them up and dressed them to go to school, not before preparing a good breakfast in a kitchen that really was cut from one of my mother's home decor magazines.

They went on vacation and celebrated birthdays! I still keep them in a small box; they are my treasures, and I hope that my future granddaughters can play with them.

They will also be able to play with the project I am making with this beautiful collection.

On this occasion, I have prepared a postcard that is a bedroom with a small bed and closet to keep Penny's clothes and hats. I hope you like the idea!" ~Marina

What a fantastic snap guide! I'm really enjoying the projects that have been created / shared this way- especially since I'm using an older phone to see them... it still lets me appreciate the details! Magda and Marina- both delightful projects. I still have some of my own "color me" type paper dolls from when I was younger, and it makes me want to pull them out and play immediately! Even if I don't have the Penny's Paper Doll set things yet... and *that's* the meaning of inspiration! Thank you ladies!
