She scraps!!

Yes she scraps - and with gorgeous products available in the shop at the moment...seriously can you blame me??

I was enticed to do this layout and have featured the gorgeous Parisian post card, the white lace, the vintage ticket (my fave!!) the scalloped music sheet and that silky soft pink ribbon.. so romantic and just so beautiful and so easy to combine with other products from my stash to make a layout and still have plenty left for another layout and maybe a card.

and here is a close up for you

I have also made a boy page using even more goodies - such as the envelope that holds the details of the story behind the letter which I have stamped, the funky striped paperclips, puzzle pieces, twine, vintage tickets, the funky alphabet ribbon at the top of the page and the red film strip tape

and a close up for you all too of the tape and the envelope

Grungy boy LO

I am sooooo sorry about the stodgy photos... I promise I am working on it.... but I am between houses and must have packed my camera (hopefully) and will get it when I unpack.
In the meantime, I think if you squint, tilt your head to the left slightly and stick out your tongue just a little.... the photos look alot clearer.... and bigger somehow {!!!!}

Here is a piccy of a LO I have used with the great packs available in the shop, lots of yummy scrummy little pieces all over and a photo of my little man looking all cute and innocent....

Is a closeup easier??? Here is featured a vintage bingo card {LOVE THEM!!!} in the paper packs, a playing card and a vintage monopoly ticket ..... and a vintage "garment alteration" tag I have used for journalling the date on .... so very sweet.

I am trying to get better piccies ... sorry... but you get the idea!!

Jump over to the OF shop and have a looksie for some vintage yumminess and have a go at a grungy boy page too!!

Oh.... and the twine is now cheaper.... cant have enough twine eh??

until next time.....
