The Vintage Girl

Hello friends!
I want to share with you another of the projects I did as guest designer for October Afternoon.
This is a lovely vintage bed tray. I found it at an antique store and knew it would be fun to alter!

 I used a mixture of OA's Modern Homemaker line and their Fly a Kite line. Of course the pink crochet flower was made by my Mom!

As many of you know, I work for a scrapbook store. I teach classes, design  kits and create store samples. I am also very well known as "the vintage girl".  Hehe!  Everyone knows what I like best!
My Boss brought to my attention the other day that one of my favorite companies is coming out with a new line that is so me!!! I knew that you all would love it too, and I want you guys to see it!
It's called, Circa 1934 by Cosmo Cricket.

I must say I am over the moon excited to get my hands on this line!! I can't wait to play!

It's so beautiful! You can visit Cosmo Cricket's blog to see more photos of this lovely new line!

I wish you all a fun weekend! I am headed off to work at a scrapbooking retreat all weekend. I will be teaching classes and make-n-takes and hopefully manage to get in some last minute spooky crafting before Halloween!

Happy craftying, Lindsey

I'm so jealous! A scrapbooking retreat all weekend?!

I keep telling my husband I'd love to get together with a bunch of friends and just do art all day. Problem is, none of my friends are into art!

I'll just have to live vicariously through you!
