Happy Tuesday all! Beth here!
So what do you think about this challenge? Are you up for it? Here is a recap of the deets:
This is a Vintage Challenge - Remember the good old times when things were simple and neighbors and relatives all had doilies. The mothers and grandmothers gathering with the smell of small fine pastries, percolating coffee and crème filled the air. Make a layout using an old photo and a doily.
You can also see more details on blueblog! The prize is a $40 gift certificate to the store! YOW!

I ended up using my Basic Grey doily as a mask first. I turned the doily over (white back facing up) and laid it on a piece of yellow paper. I used Red Velvet Glimmer Mist and covered the entire doily. The yellow paper was my background and the actual, sprayed doily was used a partial frame around my vintage photo. (found at an antique store) I love finding old photos while antiquing!
Remember the little tin Making Memories pill box I got in my Flirtatious kit?
Well, I cut part of the backing out and used that on my layout as well. (after using a corner rounder, distresser and some ink) :D
The black pearls and gorgeous yellow brad came from the Flirtatious kit, as well. I TOLD you people that you can make so much with that kit! lol
I can't wait to see what you all came up with!! :P

Don't forget to stop by the blueblog for a chance to win an autographed Tim Holtz new alteration die!
Have a great week!
