Vintage scrapbooking in my favourite colours

I think I may have mentioned that DH and I aren't really too keen on having our pic taken. So fodder for scrapbooking could have been a little light. But ... we both love taking travel photos wherever we go and so I've started to scrap some of our travel pix from previous years. Plenty of material, (as both families will agree when we face them with hundreds of holiday photos whenever we get back), lol!

Today's page is one that I started to put together at my last crop and I CASEd it totally from one in the current main catalogue:

Well I finally printed off the photo and put it together last night:

Stamp sets: Vintage Vogue, Very Vintage
Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, River Rock, Very Vanilla
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, River Rock
Satin Ribbon: Old Olive
Punch: Round Tab
Other: Brights Designer Buttons

The 6" x 6" page of Rich Razzleberry was stamped with the Very Vintage wheel in matching ink. A strip of River Rock was also wheeled with the same Very Vintage in River Rock ink. This strip was torn along both edges, sponged with more River rock and wrapped with Old Olive Satin Ribbon. The pic was matted onto Old Olive card. A Round Tab punched from River Rock card, was journalled and adhered behind the pic, before tucking the photo behind the ribbon. The flowers and leaves were stamped using the rock and roll technique with River Rock and Rich Razzleberry inks before being cut out and shaped. The button was threaded with a sliver of River Rock card then added to the centre of the larger flower on a glue dot.

The photo was taken at Versailles at the little farm (Hameau de la Reine) that was Marie Antoinette's rustic retreat.

Thanks for stopping by.
