Sacred Play

This is my entry for the Digital Whisper 100 themes challenge #48 "Childhood". This beautiful vintage photo from Magic Moonlight Free imagery  just touched my heartstrings when I think about how special my dolls were to me in my childhood. From  my "Thumbelina" baby doll , Raggedy Ann and later on to Barbie, Ken, Skipper and Scooter and even my assorted Troll dolls all gave me a sense of comfort and sacred play. Other added lace imagery from Scrapbookfraphics.
