Go Green - Vintage 'n Shabby Style
I just got to our hotel after my cousin-in-law's wedding. My tummy is stuffed with Greek pastries and a homemade "LEGO" cake (made by the groom's brother). So much for cutting back on the sweets - lol! I even took some extra goodies home with me to share with my friends at the library - if I don't eat them all that is!
This layout was a different approach to the premade layouts I make. As many of you know, I am obsessed with vintage and shabby chic. I just bought a ton of different vintage ephemera while on a short getaway with my hubby and just had to play with them! I did make many of the larger flowers on this layout - experimenting with different blooms. It was a little time consuming - but MUCH cheaper than buying the expensive Prima products (sorry Prima but it's true!) One flower was made with vintage lace, another with tulle, and the third - layered vintage book papers dipped in yummy gold glitter. Super fun and super cheap! I will hopefully have the motivation of doing a tutorial soon! Wish me luck - lol!
As always, this layout is for sale on Ebay. You can find the auction listing with many more pictures here.
Thanks for stoppin' by!
