Some more.....Vintage Chic

~ Hello Everyone ~ 
Mel here again to share with you some more projects from the gorgeous kit I received from Jo this month. I was so lucky to receive the gorgeous Heidi Swapp ~ Vintage Chic collection along with some gorgeous other bits and pieces.

Haven't the girls done an absolutely sensational job scrap lifting my layout? We are so blessed to have such a magical design team who continue to provide such awesome projects for us all to be inspired by.
Have they inspired you to get your entry in?

I have moved away from the challenge for this post.
When I originally saw these papers I immediately thought of memories to hold on to. Of family stories. Well, that is what I have for you today.......memories of our family story.

I have used these gorgeous papers to create a layout of Jason's Nanna and Grandfather. Isn't it wonderful that scrapbooking then makes us go and find out the story if we don't already know it....I found out that this was one of the first times that Jason's Nanna and Grandfather met. It was mid 1945....they were married in January 1946 and had their first child in July 1946!

Here is my layout....

I have used the Vintage Chic papers, some gorgeous lace ribbon to create the doily flowers and some Kaiser Paper Blooms in Sage. 

On the back of the photo Jason's Nanna had included some information about the photo. I didn't want to hide her handwriting so I scanned and printed it to include on the layout.

This will definitely be a layout that will tell a story in many years to come....

I have also used the Vintage Chic collection to create some cards. I haven't put a sentiment on them yet.....sometimes it is good to have some cards that you can add the sentiment on when you need to.
As you will see these cards are both the same layout however different papers in each place.

Now, the last thing I want to share with you is actually a UFO (Un Finished Object). When Jo sent me this months pack it had the most gorgeous Twiddleybitz Fence in it. I have had this layout incomplete for such a long time. The fence gave me the inspiration to get it done.....thanks Jo!
