Vintage Beauty

Hello, everyone!

Julie here again with a quick and easy layout to share with you…

Sometimes a page is just perfect right out of the package and needs very little alteration…which I found to be the case with my project for today…

“Beauty has many faces”, says this beautifully vintage page in the “Family Fun Paper Kit“…so true!

I couldn’t help but think of this picture of my great-grandmother, Estella, when I saw this page–an elegant, timeless beauty all her life…inside and out…

 {I can never seem to leave my Platinum Stickles alone!  Love the way it frames a vintage photograph…}

I kept this VERY simple.  The page was just perfection to me as it was…

All I added (besides the photo) was the little journal sheet found in the “Family Fun” kit, personalized with Estella’s name…

 {just had to pile on a few vintage buttons here!}

…and I cut out a second image of the toiletries, purse and powder…

…then popped them up just a bit–and added some sparkle, of course!

That’s it!  I didn’t feel it needed anything else…with the pretty floral border, I felt that lace or any additional trim was unnecessary, so I was done in no time!

So glad you stopped by today–where will you find beauty today?

    I just finished drooling over this fabulous layout on Julie’s blog, but I had to come over here to let you know how much I appreciate her inspiration. I just received this fabulous Family Fun kit after winning it, and I was trying hard to think of how to use it. The one page, Giddy Up, will be used in my grandson’s book since we call him “Roo” which is short for Buckaroo. I have collected family pics from historical site pages on the web, so these papers will be a fabulous way to showcase them. I love how Julie mainly used the kit with only a few extras. This kit definately has the perfect amount of extras without all of the bulk! I can’t thank you enough for offering this fabulous kit!
