2 page layout with Carolina Breeze "Vintage Style" by Colette

Today I want to share a layout I made with "Carolina Breeze".  I think the papers in this line are very versatile and they worked so well with these photos I took of my daughter.  We have a collection of Vintage cameras at my house- and this particular one- I actually spray-painted BLUE!  This camera was not in the BEST condition when I bought it at a second hand store - so with a little coat of paint and some damask stickers-- it is all "Fixed up".  

Along with the Carolina Breeze papers -- I also used the alphabet stickers from the "Notations Album" - another of Teresa's lines.  Since the story was about the camera -- I made a flower with Tim Holtz "film strip ribbon".  Here's how I made the flower:

I cut  4 strips of the film -which is made of acetate.  The strips measured about 8 inches long.  I folded them over to create loops and stapled them in the center.  After doing this to all 4 strips,  I piled them on top of each other to create a flower.  The center of the flower is held together with a Bling BRAD. 
I used the film strip to make the stem of the flower and also as borders to my photo.  
Have a delightful day making memories!
