Hi, thanks for stopping by, well, this layout is really in my safe zone. I just love vintage, and got alot of goodies from my local scrapbooking store, like the wonderful graphic 45 pp, this on is "on the boardwalk" block of pp, and also brought this wonderful dictionary style pp which is the second layer on the lo.  On the dictionary pp I use Tim Holtz masks, looks like the top ends of an old gate love it, forgot the name of the mask but it has this one and another smaller one and a barb wired one.  The keyhole, key, and hinge are from the Sizzix dies of Tim Holtz, that I just painted with bronze coloured arcylic paint and to give it a bit of an old style to it I dabbed on some distress ink in black soot to the edges, on the keyhole I added a little metal heart that came in an embellie kit. The row of stamps and the small tag with the twine and the vintage stamp of the lady at the beach are from the Graphic 45 block of pp, there the die cuts that came in the pack, how great is that. The title is from the cricut cartridge, true to form "Heritage", just seemed fitting, lol. The little butterflies that you see are acutally metal, in a cooperish kind of tone, there embellishments for sewing.
TIP; go to you local department store's sewing section or fabric section, you'll be amazed at what you can find for scrapbooking and at just a fraction of the cost, sometimes there the exact same things, but since there not in a scrapbooking store, its a whole lot cheaper, ribbons, embellishments for blouses, lace, on a couple of the flowers on the lo, theres sort of a green little flower in the centre of the bigger paper flower and that is a fabric ribbon that comes in a row of all the little flowers and all I did was cut it up and wala!!!!  The flowers are from Prima's white Botannical Mix, which I just sprayed with Smooches colored sprays, make the investment with them there great and save a whole bunch of time and your flowers will be custom made by you for your layout, thatst cool, so best buy SMOOCHES, here I used the brown chocolate one, the sage one and the yellow, there fabulous.
Thanks again for stopping by, I love visitors, if you want sign my guest book, thanks again, any comments or doubts, just leave a message, bye!!!
