Laurel does Vintage???

The challenge this week at Scrap Tiffany is vintage.  I have a hard time doing vintage cards but a layout?!  I was going to do a card for the challenge but wanted to push myself to try a layout.  I am glad I did, I am happy with the result.  Behind the picture is a pocket for a journaling page.  I gave it to my MIL to write about the picture as it is her dad and uncle in it.  I just am waiting to get it back.  The papers and some journaling tags are 7 Gypsies, letters - Jenni Bowlin and some tags are from CTMH.  This is also for The Shabby Tea Room Challenge - Old (my picture and CTMH journalling spots) and New (the Graphic 45 papers) challenge.

 I used a bonus sketch from Stuck Sketches:




Why don't you do a vintage layout for our challenge this week, be sure to link it to the Scrap Tiffany blog.
