Melanie's January Challenge

Starting this month BlueMoon will be posting challenges for the design team and for You! Lisa has posted the challenge yesterday on the BlueMoon Blog and it reads like this:

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.

I used the orange Basic Grey Doilies on my layout.

The brown frame around the layout is computer generated.

Here's my teapot to go with the theme...

The metal spoon from January Flirtatious kit was a perfect embellishment!

I made a few of the simple flowers just by cutting the patters out the paper.

Ok, get ready because it's your turn...go ahead and dig out your supplies! After you finished the challenge-show us! You can post in the BlueMoon gallery!

You can read about the challenge and prize on the BlueBlog. I can't wait to see YOUR layout!

Have a great day!
