I spend most of yesterday working on finishing up kiting my classes for next for Albion's "Big Birthday Bash" ( NOV 7th, 8th, and 9th). If you live near ( NE) and are interested .. just call the store for the info.. they'll be happy to help you.
Scrapbook Paradise 402-395-6005. There will be a number of great classes offered that day, by different instructors. My sister Jan and I will be doing 6 classes that (Nov8th) Saturday. Looking forward to it!
Late last night and this morning I worked on this. I found this cute little frame at a thrift store. It was an ugly green and gold ..but I little white paint took care of that. I didn't want the glass in it... so just tossed that.
I think the papers in the Classic Paper Pad from Craft Secrets Heartwarming Vintage are probably my very favorite. I find myself just draw to them.. especially when using vintage photos and images. This paper just speaks for it's self.. you just don't need much else when you use it. It's just beautiful.
You can click to see it larger.
That sweet little label down toward the bottom right is one from a sheet of labels you get in the Classic Paper Pad also. The stamp is from the Mini Memories set of Clear Art Stamps from Crafty Secrets.
The post card piece here and the piece tucked under the lower left hand corner are both from the "Summertime" Image and Journal book.
The decorative corner piece and keyhole are from Melissa Frances.
Not sure exactly who the sweeties are in the photo. Family of my moms friend Mary. I will have to ask her. Just thought it looked like a sweet grandma and her granddaughters. That's part of the intrigue of old photos to me.. even if you don't know those in the photos, you have to wonder what their lives where like back then, what their days consisted of from morning till night. I find it so interesting. Just mades you want to crawl back in time and chat with them for a bit.
And thanks Paula.. I'm putting all that lace to good use. ( yes... I'm actually using some of it.. not just looking at it) lol Although.. both are quite enjoyable to me. lol
I also wanted to mention.. Sandy is back from Holidays and has posted on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog... TWO fantastic giveaways HERE
