Vintage can be Bright & Cheery

With the big turn towards vintage style in scrapbooking and cardmaking–I thought it would be nice to show that you can do a more of a retro-vintage also.

I had all these fabulous pictures of my Grandma- and wanted to put them all on the same layout– at the same time, I didn’t want to leave any of the pictures out–because there were too many good ones!

I used DCWV paper stack- for all of the papers.

I added some ribbon, chipboard letters, buttons and used the Stampin’ Up border punch.

I am told,  that the picture on the bottom right, was taken of my grandma when she bought her first dress-coat.  It’s a beautiful coat–and the top-right picture I love, because I see myself standing there with a camera around my neck- it was a long time before I saw very many pictures of my grandma– because I expect, like me– she was the one always taking the photos of everyone else.

Ps. My mom is the one on my grandpa’s lap 🙂

There ya go…Orange, lime green and aqua–not your typical colors for vintage pictures–but, I like how it turned out!
