Don't you just love...

... blog hopping? It was this post by Caroline that inspired me to make the page below, as it brought back memories of my beloved Sindy doll back to me .
I made the page for the challenge I set over on the DoCrafts forum.





I cut the large title word the old fashioned way, copying the logo from the web, reversing it (in Word) then printing on the back of my paper, and cutting it out. The word girl was made using green thread, twisted to make the word girl, then stuck down with glossy accents. The papers are Cosmo Cricket (again) Material girl, I got them as part of Aprils monthly kit from Stampeezee. They just seemed to go perfectly with the vintage theme of the page once they were inked and distressed a bit! The flowers, dewdrops and buttons are all part of the kit. I stamped the ticket using an Autum Leaves set.


Only 2 more teaching days for me this week. tomorrow and Friday, it's like being part time again! Garden should look fab in high summer after the hours we spent in it this weekend. Just have to hope for a decent summer now!


Oooh, and I just noticed that the background to my blog seems to have disappeared... hence the new one. Love owls!

Fabulous ... and so impressed with your hand cutting of the title. I'll admit, I was a Barbie fan, and your layout has made me think of doing something very similar, thank you :)

This is a fab page Ann! I loved my Sindy doll and had the house with the dining table and chairs, and the white sofa with green 'cushions', all the bedroom furniture - she was just so glam! Oh, it has brough back some great memories, thank you! Sue C x

Fabulous retro LO Ann! In answer to your question ... no, I wasn't a Sindy girl! I'd grown out of the doll stage when she appeared (showing my age now!lol)

A lovely layout, but I never was a Cindy fan, neither was my daughter, or is my grand daughter. I never could see the attraction. We've all had what I would call 'proper' dolls and dolls houses etc. But then i'm old fashioned I know!

Love the retro feel of the layout. I was never a Sindy fan. I had Tressy - remember her? You pushed her tummy button and her hair grew longer! Those were the carefree days of childhood.

Superb page and I loved Sindy but through my Daughter they were not around when I was growing up.
