Let's Get Shabby.....

Here's my take on this month's sketch challenge at Let's Get Shabby.The criteria was sketch and something Vintage. The little filigree heart was pulled off some old necklace, and the book page is from a 70's edition of Alice in Wonderland. The Roses are Prima which is vintage inspired! I'm really clutching straws here aren't I? And before someone screams sacrilege at destroying my precious books, the kids got there first! I have 4 kids, precious things are just not welcome in my house. I've tried and I keep failing. No where is high enough, no where is secure enough, give up Vikki! ;-)

About the photo, my Daughter 9 and her friend at a classmates halloween themed birthday party. Apparently big brother is a budding photographer and had a studio set up in the garage, where he took photos of all the kids, the girls obviously bugged him into getting a print out!! Which reminds me, I shoulda scanned it first - Doh! The grave images are from a stamping on Acetate swap we did through the group last June. Thanks charmaine.
