(Dusty Attic DT - May Mood Board
+ Scrap The Girls May Challenge)

It is time for me to share with you my project
inspired by the May mood board at Dusty Attic.

Here is this month's classy and elegant mood board:

I was inspired to create a page about myself using some of the same colours 
and textures as in the images, including lace, white wash and pretty flowers.

I was also inspired by this month's challenge at Scrap The Girls:

I created this page to remind me that getting older doesn't have to be a bad thing. 
I will be turning 45 next month and I'd rather see myself as getting more vintage 
rather than older. Birthdays should be celebrated and not dreaded, even when you
may be going down hill. hehe

I created my title by combining the Dusty Curls ABC Set and the Mini ABC Set Upper
as well as the 'vintage' word from the Mini Words #3 pack.

I cut one of the gorgeous Corner Flourish #3 in 2 pieces, treating each piece a different colour of embossing powder to complement the colour palette. I then dabbed some white paint on them.

On my background, I chose to use the Lace Stencil to add a little texture.
I used gold embossing powder on the butterfly from the Flutterbies #1 set.

My favorite part of creating a project aside from playing with chipboard is searching my flower stash to pick the ones that will best fit my colour palette and theme. Needless to say, I have more flowers in my stash than I will ever be able to use in a lifetime!

And the many leafy flourishes from Dusty Attic are just perfect
to extend the flower clusters on any layout.

Now let's take a closer look at the Dusty Attic products that I used:
