Something Old.

Hello there my Friends.
Today I want to share with you a photo taken just over 30 years ago...Yes that is me and my DH!
Garden Girl Shimelle at 2 Peas in a Bucket challenged us to scrap a vintage photo.
My friends Irini and  Eleni tell me that anything over 20 years  old is vintage...scary!!!
This past Saturday we went to a crop at the darling Katerina's home..so I packed a box of papers and about 4 potential photos to scrap, I had decided to do the challenge at Get Creative.... it is a colour challenge, these were the colous we were to use .

Even though the crop was hectic, a lot of chatting and laughing and eating, I managed to plan 2 L.O.s 
Here is one of the L.O. I have made, there are another 2 to follow....in the same colour scheme!!

This paper was given to me by my friend Aliki, it is called Sweet Surrender by G.C.D.Studios. This was one sheet of paper, I just cut out the center panel and distressed both pieces. As you can see the lilac paper under the photo is Co-ordinations that has been embossed and sanded, then inked. I sewed the 2 lace pieces onto a lilac cardstock....I love the strings just hanging, I think they add to the vintage, frayed feel...
The "Voulez Vous" is from a clothing tag, the post card from a generic sheet of images, and the vintage paper under that is mounted on a piece of paper that I have coloured with coffee. The tag behind the top pansy is from Echo Park and I have journalled on it.
That is it for today, I will photograph the other L.O. tomorrow..it was so cloudy today!!
Oh yes I will be STREAMING tomorrow on Zeffy Scraps I will be making a mini album for my SIL using B.G. Curio Papers.So join me if you can.
