How could I play with the oh-so-fun October Afternoon 5 & Dime collection without doing a layout? I couldn't! The 5 & Dime papers have a wonderful vintage vibe, harkening back to an era of innocence, so they were perfect for a picture of my sister-in-law and sweet little niece.
I followed Sketch #90 found here at the LCOM SKETCH BLOG, which allowed me to to layer and combine just about every spare scrap piece of paper left over from my earlier projects. I had the Jenni Bowlin background paper forever because I couldn't find anything to go with it, but it coordinated perfectly with my 5 & Dime papers.
I really loved using the stickers from the 12x12 Shape Stickers Page, the buttons, and the ephemera from the Miscellany Kit. They were so pretty and added the perfect vintage touches needed to complete my layout!
My fun with October Afternoon has now come to an end, but I'll be back next month playing with products from your favorite guy and mine - Tim Holtz!
