Our Vintage Affair

>> Sunday, March 27, 2011

I found a new challenge site this weekend and I am pretty excited about this one.  It is called Our Vintage Affair.

One of the things I like best, aside from the great challenges & prizes, is the fact that they give you the whole month to complete your projects.  There are a lot of challenge sites I love playing along with, but sometimes a week just isn't enough time for me to get my act together and the challenge has ends before I complete my project.  

 I decided to play along with the March layout challenge which was to follow the sketch, plus incorporate butterflies into your layout.  Though to be honest, given the butterfly kick I have been on lately, it would probably have been more of a challenge for me to NOT include butterflies in my layout then to include them.  I did find creating a page in the "vintage" look to be a challenge though - as much as I love that style of scrapbooking (love Melissa Francis) I've never quite been able to pull it off to my satisfaction. 

Here is what I ended up with - 

K&Company patterned paper (I think)
Unknown patterned cardstock
Prima jewels & pearls
Vintage Label graphic from The Graphics Fairy
Unknown doilie, crepe paper, embellished pins, vintage button
American Crafts foam thickers
Chipboard die-cuts from AR Creations
Hand dyed seam binding from The French Market
