Barbie Coloring Pages Part 1

Here is something different.  I found a Barbie Coloring Book in the library's book store and picked it up.  Here are some scans.  The scans have been whitened.  The book is called Barbie Outdoor Adventure from Merrigold Press 1998.  I did not scan all of the pages but I do have more to post along with a fun project which I will put up in a few days.

I decided to post this paper doll today since I was flipping through the last issue of OPDAG's Paper Doll Studios, which had a "Round the World" theme.  This doll is named Mai and was created by Yuko Green.  She has three lovely kimonos as well as hair accessories and a doll, which has it's own dress.  This two page paper doll is from Doll World April 1998.
