Shadowbox Photo Composition

One of the Christmas gifts that I made and couldn't post before Christmas is this shadowbox photo composition. It was a lot of fun to make. J&K went to Paris on their honeymoon and this picture of them in front of the Eiffel Tower is great.
I stamped the inside frame with a Stamping Up French writing stamp (of which I have no clue what it says but am sure one of the words is amore). I found the basket, tree, and bench with the love birds at Hobby Lobby. I couldn't believe it when I found the photographer figurine and the basket with the French bread which tied the theme in place. I made a faux cobblestone street for the inside bottom and the rest is history.

Printable Paper Dolls

I love paper dolls! My mother would save the Betsy McCall paper doll page from McCall's magazine and put them in the "rainy day" box.
I found this website which has printable paper dolls that are public domain. As soon as I get some ink cartridges, I am going to print some and put them in my own "rainy day" box.
