Paper Doll Story in Progress

Using the above toys I'm playing with a little series that might make a story.
(the circle things are double sided dots, the heart & star things are shape hole punchers... 
"Write (draw) about what you know," said the Library Mouse in my previous post. On Valentine's Day (Heart Bandit post) a guy on the street asked if we knew that hearts were dropping from a window on Commercial Street! We didn't, but I was thinking that perhaps some one caught them...
 ...and continued on her walk,
 ...and continued...and I don't really know what happened after this...If you do, please tell! And I don't know if she will end up in a book with pages, or a tunnel or accordion book or a diorama box...Perhaps you do? (Please tell!) What I do know is that Maine College of Art Professor Judy LaBrasca,
who got me started on this, is a very inspiring teacher!

    1. You might just have to use your story telling talents, Jewel, if you had this book, because I'm not sure that i have the words to go with the images...
