Enter the "Dolls" Theme Altered Pages Challenge!

The Altered Pages Challenge Blog in June has a classic theme
Baby Dolls
Okay, I have to admit that I don't have much interest in baby dolls ... but I do 
like to participate in the challenges. So this was my take on the theme.

First, I used an image from the Altered Pages collage sheet that has always made me smile.
This girl just looks like the most unpleasant, greedy, piggy little girl ever. The kind who would never share or let another little girl play with her dolls. I love her. Isn't she great?!

Then I realized that I had a few miniature Paris flower buckets which I had filled with vintage dolls which might come into use. I like the idea of having these bizarre creatures used as bouquets, but anything for an Altered Pages Challenge contest!
For the inquiring minds, yes, I have several of these doll bouquets - they often get used after being steampunked beyond recognition on art pieces.

So with my Altered Pages collage image, some 3D Lacquer, the lettering from the Graphic 45 "French Country" collection, some Paris Trunk Eco-Friendly Ink (all available at Altered Pages!) and a few paper flowers and vintage crochet trim and Liquid Pearls, I created my contribution to the 
Baby Dolls challenge.

I hope you like her. I have titled it
"I Love My Dolls to Pieces"
