New Vintage style LO and A HUGE RAK THANK YOU!

As a member of Ukscrappers website I had never asked for a RAK before so I decided when I saw one come up I would grab it as I had just started working on vintage lo's and this one sounded perfect. A huge thank you to Bridget.Williams for her gorgeous RAK, the items are fab and some of them got me thinking a little more out of the box than usual, I tend to be a person of routine, which isn't always the best when scrapping. I am going to have so much fun with all the lovely bits you sent me, thank you thank you thank you.

Here is my first vintage lo since the RAK arrived, from it I used a gold knot button on my Journaling ticket, the gold Mesh under the photo, the gold bead string and the pearl bead string. I can’t wait to use more bits on more projects.
Here I used Tim Holtz big tickets, they are fab to use and much easier to write on than the smaller ones I have.
Here I used a new pack of vintage Prima's I picked up in Perth at Stampaholics a couple of weeks ago.
Here I got the paint dabbers out, I used the hazelnut one to do a full first coat then lightly dabbed gold over the top.
With New twins in the family I thought it would be nice to scrap My Nan and her twin as well. Great fun! I am really enjoying Vintage, I wasn't sure I would.
Thanks for looking. Jay xxx

Really lovely Jay! I like how you've used the primas and the pearls. Though you know it really could have done with some pink on it! And maybe a dimensional sticker or two!!!!!!
