Vintage Layout

I am so in love with the vintage look. I'm not sure if its because I have all those old photos that need scrapping or its just the look itself. On a recent trip to San Angelo, Texas to visit my son, who was stationed there, we went into town to do some shopping. I ventured into a store called J. Wilde's Boutique. The sold items from the 50s, 60s and 70s. It was like walking into my grandparent's house or even my house as a little girl. I saw suitcases I had, canisters like my grandmother had and furniture everyone had. In the back of the store there was a section on decorator fabric and trims from the same periods. I found the most adorable ribbon, it was green and fluffy with fabric roses. I just had to have some, but at $8 a yard, I couldn't get crazy. I also found some beautiful black trim with tassels. Love it. So, you want to see the layouts I did with the vintage ribbon and trim?

Journaling reads "Pearl and LJ Hebert, Married in October of 1932" My Dad couldn't remember the exact date, and this isn't their wedding picture. No one knows when this photo was taken so I just figured I would put their names and the year of the marriage because its when their love story began. For this layout I used bazzill cardstock, Patterned Paper by Creative Imaginations (Christine Adolph), that vintage green lace with 3D flowers incorporated into it, vintage cotton lace (purchased at a garage sale for 25 cents had almost three yards), feathers, a stick pin, jeweled brads, buttons, Prima butterfly, and a shabby chic bird I purchased at a crop. The title is something I found in the sewing department at Hobby Lobby. It think it says it all.

Uh Oh, I forgot to take a picture of the other layout. Everything is done except the title. I will take the picture this weekend and upload it on Monday.
