For a while now I've wanted to do a little thrift shopping to see if I could get some older books to do book page flowers and to use in collage, so I decided that this morning I'd head over and see what I could find. I got a great old dictionary and a pretty cool book with great text and pictures, and I scored a huge old Encyclopedia Britannica World Atlas for $5! I also found another great atlas like the kind people used to keep in cars before GPS. Then I did a little more poking around to see what other treasures were waiting to be uncovered. I was actually shocked when I found a nice little cache of vintage lace and trimmings just waiting for me to come and take it home. Check it out...
So after finding a treasure trove like that, I was definitely in the mood to do some scrapping. I wanted to use some of my lace, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to work on so I used this month's Prima Picks to pull together a stack of supplies and then picked pictures to go with them.
Here's the layout I did... can I just say that I'm totally in LOVE with these Grand Dame flowers? They're gorgeous. I'm a total Prima addict, so this was a super fun layout. These are from Christmas - Adorable-Niece-Eraleigh was opening the Pretty Princess Kit I gave her for Christmas.
And of course a close-up of all the pretty flowers :)
The pictures I ordered for Steph's wedding scrapbook came today, and I got them all organized in the album's page protectors so I know which ones to put on which page... hopefully I can start on that tomorrow. Of course, tomorrow is also the USA vs. Canada men's hockey hold medal game. I haven't watched any of the Olympics this year, but I have to watch the big game! Should be a good one.
