Everything old is new again!

I was searching for a particular style of paper the other day (for an upcoming challenge at Scrapsidaisy) which led me to the deepest depths of my paper stash...the papers that I could've probably thrown out or donated to a worthy cause, and never even missed them. The papers that I've had for years and years, and that I haven't even looked at for years and years :)

And something great happened.... I saw them with fresh eyes :) and some of them have real potential!

When you combine them with newer products, old stuff gets a new lease of life!

The newsprint paper is by 7Gypsies, and was released in 2003...that's almost vintage :) I combined it with my favourite Heather Bailey Freshcut paper, a new Maya Road flower and a funky colour palette and voila! Not so vintage after all :)

The chipboard letters and bird are by Collections....what??? NO thickers????? LOL and I left them raw to pick up the colour in the flower centre. These flowers are just gorgeous IRL, so detailed and delicious. The pack had yellow and hot pink...mmmmmmmmmm....i had to use them straight away!

A very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Linda for today...hope your day is as wonderful as you are!

I love those flowers they are divine. Just how old is vintage meant to be? It all came together really nice and its a lovely photo. Cant get my head around you using all this chipboard lately and au la natural as well! WTG Susan.
