Sunday Sketches - Let's Play




I have been pretty busy the last week playing " Camp Counselor" to my little Saylor. 
Summer is in camp already but Saylor prefers what we call around our house, "Camp Mom."
We've had all sorts of fun creating our very own version of Camp. 
Movies, parks, reading, painting and drawing. She is also quite the little artist...
She has been helping me create some great ideas for my Summer Collection coming out soon!



Today, I am excited to share with you all one of the projects that we worked on this week - 
Our very own magnetic paper dolls - they really are so much fun and perfect for summer time playing!

So today, we are sharing our version of Saylor the Mermaid. Simply print the picture below onto magnetic paper and you can have some fun swimming and collecting shells in lots of fancy new mermaid clothes!

Now, Let's Play - And, isn't that what summer's should be for, anyway? 


Save the above picture. 
print . enjoy. play.
See you at Sunday Sketches, here !

Heather, your darling girls are such an inspiration.

I spent hours as a little girl, drawing, cuting and making paperdolls. We backed them with cardboard from the cereal boxes, and made all kinds of colorful clothes from scraps of wall paper.

So much fun... so many memories.
