Sandi is our host this week, and the colors she came up with are so lovely and refined...black, white, gold and silver...
Here's my take on the challenge:
Sweet little photographer ready to take some vintage photos...got this adorable image from Crafty Secrets' "Girlfriends" Images & Journal Notes booklet.
So glad I still had some of this wonderful textured gold and silver metallic paper left--can't get it any more! Had to add lots of lovely silver shavings glitter, black & white gingham ribbon, some great gold metallic ribbon, and these fabulous white vintage buttons from my husband's grandmother's button stash...(thank-you, Fern!)
...I really love these buttons--they really shimmer--hard to see in the photo, though...
That's it for tonight! Hope you all can play along with us this week--any style is welcome!
Love the sweet little fellow! And of course I LOVED the buttons! Who wouldn't? Great job! HUGS! CharleneReplyDelete
