A Vintage Affair Challenge Layout

I set the first challenge at the beginning of May to use an image from a free site. This is the image I chose......it's quite neutral because I didn't find the challenge as easy as I thought I would!! I thought it would be easy to find a cute image and fit it into my layout!! Not!! Although everyone else who entered did really well.

The photo of Georgia was taken in a museum that had an Original Victorian photographers studio in it. There was no one around so Georgia put on a costume and I clicked away!! I wish we'd stayed longer and all got dressed up that would've been one for the family album!




Oh Yeah and do I get ten bonus points because for once in my life I actually used ephemera.....ie: the ticket stub from the museum! I did make the man swap it for a nicer coloured one though....that's the scrapper in me I just can't help myself to the horrror of my husband who wonders what on earth I am up to!


I am still having to be inventive as Prima flowers aren't available in Timbuktu but they are available at my local supermarket in the form of a hair clip.
I joined two of my ready made sprigs together to get the vine effect this time.........next time I think I'll do three!

Today is the last day for any entries on A Vintage Affair.......to view them, join the group and take part in the vote click please click

Love and ephemera
