Love the way U smile

As I have said in a previous post, Chloe hasn't smiled properly for photos since getting her braces, on Easter Sunday I managed to snap this beautiful shot of Chloe. I brought the photo with me to Tracey's Time for U Crop, but the papers and cardstock I had picked out just weren't talking to me. Then last night as I was checking my bloglines I saw that Ruth has set up a challenge blog for vintage layouts called A Vintage Affair. So of course I had to go check it out. And the first challenge was to lift the following page


I thought Yeah, that could work, so the following page happened. I actually do have journaling on the journaling block hidden behind the photo, which just basically says how I miss Chloe's beautiful smile and I am so happy to see it back. As you can see typical of me, I followed Ruth's layout as near as possible as I could. Need to break out of that habit, lol

Please do go check out A Vintage Affair, as I am sure it is going to be very popular once the word gets around.

What I used:

Die Cuts With A View - Old World Stack - Textured Paper
Prima Painterly Petals
Papermania pearl brad (Ireland)
Vintage Lace
The journlaing block and title - Bo Bunny's A gift of love cut out sheet (part of Tracey's April kit)
Tim Holtz Burshed Corduroy Distress Ink
Heart Charm

All bought at Tracey's shop unless otherwise stated.

Thankyou for taking part Helena,

I may get no visitors at all!!! Or suddenly become overwhelmed as Vintage is so popular.

How lovely to see such a beautiful photo of Chloe smiling, she normally has her hands over her mouth so this is refreshing and of course she looks very pretty.

I can see Vintage becoming your thing if your cards are anything to go by!!

Love Ruth xx
