Layout Using Older Paper

I have been doing a challenge at another site using older papers and embellishments. I've always loved Basic Grey's lines and have lots of the older ones stashed in my scrap room just waiting for that perfect photo. Here's one I've just finished, using some of the Oh Baby collection; it just seemed to be the perfect paper for this little sweetie!

The photo is mounted on the hidden part of the chipboard flower so 'floats' off the paper. I used thickers lettering and painted it pink, then coated it with glossy accents.

I think it's time for ...

A christmas layout!

for some reason it looks a little dull - my lighting is not so great! This is some Basic Grey Dasher paper: Peppermint Stick and Yule Log... I love that there is a little pink in it to go with the photo of the cup (which is raised up on pop dots). I used some pink gems on the journaling strips too. The snow flake is a Technique Tuesday chipboard shape covered with the Peppermint stick paper.
