This is the layout I mostly created at Crop for a Cause 2012 on Saturday.  I have used the Artful Crafts Sketch for October but rotated and flipped it.
The inspiration was the Jenny Bowlin buttons I won at the last Crop for a Cause and since Jenny Bowlin is Centre Stage at Artful Crafts  for October it was an opportunity to use them.

Here is my take - the vintage part being the photo of 'guess who?' and my sister some 40-something years ago.
 While the lace and doilies are not actual vintage they have been around since then.  Our Mum used to sew all our outfits and this one we wore to an auntie's wedding.  I can still remember that it had a tulle petticoat underneath.  Pretty cute complete with gloves and hats too.  Papers are Bo Bunny and I just love the colours.
 The little flower vines are "Make it Crafty". 
 Letters were made with Martha Stewart Paper Clay and moulds.
 Last week some supplies of resin and moulds arrived so the above rose and daisy are the results.  Lots of fun!

Thanks for looking at my blog.  I appreciate your visits and welcome any comments you wish to make. 

Off to bed now - I have done 3 hours of lawn mowing after work today so not sure if I will be able to walk tomorrow. 

Bye for now
