Retro Lovelies....

Have you seen the adverts for these papers?

Well, after my appearance in the Talent Spot section of the DoCrafts Creativity magazine, I was lucky enough to be sent some of these lovelies a while back, and asked to make a couple of layouts using them.
And they are published (officially) today!! One of the pages isn't in the magazine, so here's the one that wan't used.

The photo is of my sister and I taken back in the 1970s, I had scrapped it before, but I love the B&W with these beautiful papers.

I absolutely loved the papers, heavy weight, double sides, and with chevrons, hexagons and a retro feel bang up to date.
Yes, they do cost a bit more than the usual Papermania papers, but they are sooo worth it :)

Congratulations on getting them published. This page is fab! And the papers look great too. I love the look of the bakers twine for the text. x
