The Right Shoes

Happy August!  Can you believe it is here already!?   It's time for a new challenge from the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.  These month our sponsor is: Sparkle n' Sprinkle:
Sparkle N Sprinkle
and our challenge is Old School.  
You can create a retro/vintage style creation or something with a back to school theme.
I homeschool my kids so I don't need any back to school cards, so I went this a vintage themed card:
     It was perfect timing, because I had just won a vintage patterned pad of paper.  I distressed all the edges of the paper and card stock with a tea dye ink, added a bit of lace, some sheer ribbon and a bouquet of little flowers I picked up at a yard sale recently.
    I'm a total shoe girl, so I love the sentiment which says "Give a girl the right Shoes and she can conquer the world"--Marilyn Monroe
     Thanks for stopping by, I hope you will come back and play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create!
