June challenge at Our vintage affair

Over at Our vintage affair, we were asked to do a LO of a Grandparent and to use this sketch. This is my take and I love vintage. (OK I love everything!)
I've had this photo for 30 + or - years and finally scrapped it! This is my Grandma & Grandpa in Chicago. That's how my brother, sister and I distinguished our two sets of Grandparents. My major LO is digital but of course I had to add things like bling and flowers!
The little frame is from SU. I had to distress a bit with chalking.The journaling was done with word. (The SU frame has a stamped image and then a punch)
This part was cool! I didn't place my lace paper on my blue cardstock correctly so I had to rip it off and the torn blue cardstock looked cool so I used it and distressed it with chalk! (I HATE throwing things away! LOL!)


  1. Looks beautiful (& that's you-never wanting to waste anything) it sure turned out cool-GREAT JOB!!!
