(More Than Words DT - August Main Challenge)

I went vintage this month with this layout!

It was inspired by the August Main Challenge from More Than Words!
Word Inspiration - YESTERDAY
Creative Challenge - VINTAGE

You can find all you need to know about this challenge and the fabulous prizes
up for grabs as well as inspiration from the very talented MTW DT right HERE.

The word YESTERDAY obviously made me go back in the past, and this old picture came to mind. It's of my mom when she was only a teenager posing with her youngest brother in an old photo booth. She was a spitfire, as people tell me, and you can tell by this picture. She still is actually. I absolutely love the hairstyle! 

To incorporate the VINTAGE creative challenge, I chose the sepia photo and decorated my page with old-fashioned buttons and brads.

Let's look at some details:

I added lots of layers behind the photo and added flowers with a vintage print on them
as well as an old library style tag and a chipboard antique keyhole.

As you can see, I used many old-style patterns on my page.

Although they may be considered 'passé' by many, I still have lots of brads
in my stash and I still love to use them on my layouts.
This one seemed particularly perfect for the theme of this challenge.

This photo puts a smile on my face everytime I look at it.
I am so happy that I finally found the perfect opportunity to use it in my work.

Did I mention already that I just love that bow?! hehe

Make sure to visit the More Than Words blog for lots more inspiration
from my fellow DT members. The August reveal is a true classic beauty!
