I am so excited- today is DT Reveal Day on
The 3rd Challenge is:
Something You Collect
Check out the site to see all those fun collections...
You will find some FABULOUS Scrapbook inspiration too! Join us for this fun challenge!
Here is my page:
I used the Swirlydoos kit "From Venice, With Love" for this layout. I loved the colors & elements in the kit, and they coordinated perfectly with the pictures I wanted to use!!
I used Tim Holtz crackle paint to distress the chipboard heart. Since this layout is all about my love for vintage finds, I thought it was only appropriate!
I also used some of the Prima Burlap on this layout- I have been wanting to use it forever, and I finally found the perfect place!!
Left over Prima packaging was used for the tag, and
I used 7 Gypsies stamps to decorate it before I journaled.
I LOVE to go to Antique Stores, flea markets, yard sales, junk sales etc! It is one of my favorite hobbies. I love the thrill of a great UNIQUE FIND, that is a huge part of the fun to me- you never know what you might find! My style is country, rustic, primitive, shabby chic, elective... you name it. My favorite furniture and knick knacks have come from these used venues. Some people would call it JUNK, but I look at the "junk" as TREASURES. I have been collecting yard sale finds for decades, even when I was a child. My mom & I would get up early on Saturday mornings, grab a Beaches Leader and the hunt would begin!
I am lucky that Matt enjoys the hunt also... now we share this fun hobby. These pictures were taken on our "100 Mile Yard Sale" road trip in May of 2009. We went for my birthday weekend... 100 miles of junk up and down the Mississippi River!! These were some of my favorite finds.
