PK #21

I don't believe what I have just done! I pressed the back button instead of hide preview and lost the lot so here I go again!
The challenge was to create a project using something vintage or vintage inspired, not a digital thingy, and it must contain at least one stamped image. Well, I decided that as it is far too long since I did a page for my heritage album, that this would be a good opportunity :o)
Obviously the photograph is the vintage bit and the wedding cake is the stamped image (found it in the bottome of a box unused and unloved so decided to give it an airing). I framed the photo and cut the leaves with Sizzix die cuts and the wedding cake was cut with Nestie labels one.
DPs are KI Memories, Crate paper and J&P Jan freebie (see earlier post).
I printed the journalling in Word, Bradley Hand ITC.

Jackie, thanx so much for the link to making the paper flowers!!! I really appreciate it. I need to give it a try. I have other patterns to cut lots of kinds of flowers, but no roses! the little centers of these LOOK like roses - I am going to experiment! Again, Mahalo Nui Loa, HUGS! J:)
