Dolly Dingle Visits Martin and Scott

Dolly Dingle Visits Martin and Scott

Hello Martin and Scott!

I decided I wanted to create an old fashioned diorama in a shoebox (must be the special ed. teacher in me!). I had so much fun creating it! I love paper dolls, and I collect vintage laundry room items, so I thought I would put those "loves" together. Thus, Dolly has visited Scott and Martin, but it was a long visit, so she had to wash her clothes, and since she is into energy saving "green", and being an old fashioned gal, she had to hang her clothes to dry on a laundry line in front of Martin and Scotts' home. Needless to say, they were happy to see her, but glad she will soon find a "new adventure" and say good bye.

I used the following materials:

VIC "The Adventures of Dolly Dingle Paper Doll"
A photo of Martin and Scott from their VIC Blog "Our New House"
White Cardstock/Georgia-Pacific
Uhustic glue stick
An old shoebox
Pizazz Busy Scrappers Solution Christmas Papers/brick red, sky blue, green
Darice tiny clothespins
Jolee's white satin bow with a pearl
Jolee's autumn leaves
Scotch double stick tape and magic tape
Plaid Pop Dots
Silk flowers, sticks, stones, pine branches from my home

My favorite thing as a child was paper dolls, and I still love them. Even at 72 years!
