Life-size paper doll

Jenna came over to play Saturday morning and we had a ton of fun. She lay down on a sheet of brown paper and I traced around her with a black marker. Then she got busy decorating her paper doll with odds and ends of laces, ribbons and sequins from my scrap box, plus markers and crayons. I helped with the gluing, but she decided where everything would go, including the google-eyes and the blue circles and eyelashes she put around them. She wanted the ruffle trim for socks, pink velvet on the skirt, shirttail and sleeves and gold braid for her ponytail. Not to mention the sequin jewelry and yarn necklace.

We taped Paper Jenna to the closet door, then Jenna hid while Granddaddy looked for her. Lo and behold, there she was, in front of the closet. He tickled her, but she didn't giggle. Jenna thought it was a great joke, so we took P-J over to her house and taped her to the basement door. Mommy and Daddy had a nice conversation with her, although it seemed like her voice was coming from around the corner. Imagine their surprise to see that there are two Jennas!

Am I having fun, or what?
