Hi ladies this challenge is fun. And no expense for mailing just post here.
All you do is find an old vintage picture from the 1960s or before of a friend or family member and do a layout or something else using the picture. It has to be something you made within the month of challenge. You can join anytime within the month of challenge.


***Please make sure to Allow Public Embedded***


Twist **** Since it is Mothers Day this month I think a page about Mom or Grandma is good. Or since it is spring..how about something springy like flowers or things you do or places you go in spring *****

If you are not able or want to do the twist..it is fine. :):)


We will then vote on or after June 1st for a winner. Good Luck and look forward to seeing all the creations....

I am filling in for dear Martica because she started a new job that she loves & she is having a hard time adjusting & not sleeping so she is so tired. She will be back when she feels up to it.

Thank you! Just a few months ago I got lots of great old family photos from my Grandma, so I'm hoping to do some more heritage pages in between my DT work.

I have been working on my page today. I have all my vintage images distressed. They are so cute. I was going to make one page & crop my pic but now I am considering making 2 pages. I need to make some lilac petals. I am going to use a punch or cameo. I also need to decide which ink I want. I am so happy I found this secret garden Graphic 45 kit. It is perfect.

I am so glad that you are doing this too Margaret. Yes you can use that one. It was in May anyway. You just have to complete it in May.
I usually work on the next month page during this month too because I need to get enlargements, papers, find the pics etc. & figure what I am going to do next month so I can get everything that I need.

Hi guys, I am quickly checking in. I am under the weather. I had lilac framed paper that I was going to use as journaling. I realized that I would be able to use it as a frame for her pic too if I resized. I just printed it. I love it. It is so pretty too.

Hello dear friends, I am just checking in....I have been plugging away at my page. I am fussy cutting some flowers. My mom was looking down.. I said I enlarged a lilac journal box to 8x11 to maybe be a frame for her enlargement. When I cut the center out.....her picture fits exactly on the side & lines up with the edge of her pic. The tops are very close too. I sure am happy about that.

Good Friday morning dear friends,
I am still working on my page. I think I am almost done with all the edge distressing. I still need to ink everything. I do have the design decided too. I still do not know about a title yet. I have one & I am not sure where I want it or where it will fit.

Thanks Michelle, I was kinda nervous about ruining the stuff while inking for some reason. I have been scrapping since 97. I always inked my cards. For some reason, I didn't ink my pages that often. Then I realized that the stuff I was afraid about was stuff I printed myself...so I can easily reprint anything if I ruin it. lol

Just now came across this challenge. Not sure if I will submit one this month. But, I have to say I got a chuckle out of the 1960's being called "vintage"! I guess that means I am vintage since I was born in 1959! Vintage some how sounds better than just plain "old"!
I may try this out next month if digital are allowed.

Hello Welcome.
WE would love it if you join us next month.
I totally agree with you. If you read this month or last, I always say..I hate calling my pics vintage. lol I was born in the 50s too. It is fine if you use digital.

I just got my xyron refill. I am fighting headache auras. I do not want to adhere some of it due to that. I only have the 2 background pages so I do not want to mess them up.

Hi guys, I have been fighting with headaches & auras the last few days. Thankfully it was only part of the day. Martica said after the 1st of the month we will vote. I have one page done. The other is almosrt done. I need to journal. I need to adhere a few things. I need to add the bling. I am going to see if I can finish this morning. If I can't, I will just do the month end.

Dave just got me some cheesecake. I am taking a short break. THE FAB news is I did one side of the thing. It went quickly. I love this brand. It is plenty sticky enough for ribbon & other stuff but it lets you move it around a bit for placement. I am able to do it with my fingers & not the sticky tool.
I will be done soon
