Little Paper Shop Vintage Challenge

It's time for another Little Paper Shop challenge!!

This month Allison challenged the design team to create a Vintage card using a Little Paper Shop stamp (naturally)

I chose to use Beautiful Things and kept my card
quite simple - mainly because I forgot about it until this morning! ACKKKK!

Sorry, this is such a quick post! I am going to meet my Grade Eight girlfriends for lunch today!! This is the second annual reunion with these girls we have had.

Talk about vintage! This is a photo of me and my best friend Jayne at Grade Eight Graduation!!

Just to let you know, I graduated from Grade Eight in June 1971 - so needless to say we have all changed a great deal!! But it was funny, we all recognized each other immediately - how weird is that!!

That is me on the right - My mom made this dress for me and I just loved it......there were these gorgeous swiss dots all over it......but oh my gosh......look how short it is!!

Anyway - on to meet the girls! Have a great Day!

Stamps: Little Paper Shop - Beautiful Things
Paper : SU Kraft cardstock, Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush
Ink: SU White craft ink
Misc: Textile Cuttlebug embossing folder, Melissa Francis ribbon, stash buttons, sewing machine,


  1. Beautiful shabby vintage look! Your photo is indicitave of the times! I calculated that I was in grade 4 in 1971, and all I wanted was those thigh high gogo boots that Nancy Sinatra wore...never got them, but if I had been in grade 8...well maybe that would have made the difference! You are such a little hottie there!
