50's Fashion and exciting news


I am almost managing to make at least one layout a week this year. There have been a couple of weeks I have missed so when I saw the challenge at Totally Gorjuss was Something Old I knew what I wold make for my DT project this week. We are sponsored by Heather's Hobbie Haven.

The photos are of my Mum and in the second picture she is with her Mum. My Mum is only 17 in the larger picture but looks older than today's youngster of 17 doesn't she. My Mum was always dressmaking and knitting so I kept to that theme for the page. I went for a shabby chic look tearing the fashion paper and using lots of DI Vintage Photo. I've used a free vintage digital stamp behind the photos and made the frame from sanded Core'dinations. The mannequin is from Craftwork Cards and I made a dress in the 50's style for it. The title is from American Crafts letter and the ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons. I remember having the old wooden cotton reels when my Mum had finished with them to make things with. I kept a box with all sorts of bits and pieces to craft with. Goodness knows what I made.
