spur of the moment paper dolls

My daughter, like most 4 year olds, loves making crafts.  She loves to play with glue, tiny pieces of paper, glitter, tiny pieces of wood, glue, tiny pieces of string, sequins, glue, and tiny pieces of paper.  You get the idea.  For two years, her teachers have commented with amazement at how she will cut up itty pieces of paper, not even a half inch in any direction, and compose entire little drawings on them.  

And then she will carry them around with her all day.  I just love her..

This afternoon, while watching her make a scrap paper collage, I started cutting out little people.  She got so excited and it just went from there.  She drew in the faces, and told me what types of dresses they needed, what their names were, and what kinds of shoes they simply had to wear.  I am so inspired by her creativity!  More people cut outs are definitely on the way.. 

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, the doll in the pink dress, Zoe, needed red shoes. No, not flats.  The kind that clop!
