Vintage Christmas: Twisted Sketches #68

Hi Everyone
Well I just had such a good time making my LO for today's Twisted Sketches #68; today's twist is Vintage.  I went head first down vintage road; the pictures are of me at Christmas in 1976 with my brother and sister; she is giggling in the picture cause she has two different slippers on!  I don't think I'm quite old enough to be called vintage yet! LOL! But it's not a new picture of vintage it is!  Then the tag on it is ACTUALLY vintage!  I bought it last year at the Antique show; I actually I bought a few vintage postcards, tags and have been hording them until the perfect LO comes along!  Today's LO meet the perfect criteria so my Santa tag was used!  In small print on the tag is says "National School Studio's" so I'm assuming this went out with their school pictures or something.  Then for my paper and stamps I choose from SU! great vintage theme products this year! Contempo Christmas is the stamp set that I made all those cute decorations from and stamped the gorgeous boarder of sparkly trees with. My patterned paper is Love Letter which has a total vintage feel about it as well! I love this vintage trend right now!  I finished off my LO with placing Basic Pearls (sticky backed half pearls) on the decoration and using MME chipboard for the title and those little cardinals.  Actually, once I saw the picture of the LO, I decided it needed one more large cardinal next to "merry", but as you can tell I'm having a bad picture day! So I didn't retake.  Sorry about all the shadows!
