1968- Pink Dolly with a String

My sister and I got "pink dollies with a string" in 1968 for Christmas--or at least that's what we called them!  I actually can't remember the real name of the dolls. All I know is that We were so excited!!!! The pictures are old so they have a "faded" appearance.  But, you can tell we had so much fun with our dolls!  I made this along with the bookmark and card as part of the TRIFECTA for the Design Dollies challenges this week!  I used Cosmo Cricket's Jolly by Golly on all 3 projects--the snowman and the pink snowflake papers went on all three! I used a lot of jewels on the layout to brighten up the photos! I used American Crafts fabric Thickers for the letters!
You were to use the following:
1.  Colors
2. Design Element:
Your challenge (should you choose to accept it) is to create a THEMED project... That means a minimum or two or three matching pieces... I did 3.
3. Sketch

  3. Kelly, I love this gorgeous layout, what wonderful memories to relive, I wish my mum had taken more photos, I guess that is why I am always taking photos of Nate, just want him to relive the good times like you are here. I love coming here, always boosts my mojo and makes me want to get up and scrap. My love to your family. Melxx
