Fashion Fades...Style is Eternal

The inspiration for this layout was an awesome photo -dated 1918 -of my Grandma ( far right ) with other family members paired with the "Oh Soooo Yummy" Graphic 45 Fashionista papers. Toss in a quote by Yves Saint Laurent & the result is a layout that was fun, fun, fun to do!!!
The G45 papers were featured in the July 2009 Limited Edition Kit at My Creative Scrapbook .
I cut the border trim from the Haute Couture paper with my Cutter Bee scissors & mounted in on a circle disc. I then inked the edges with Distress Aged Mahogany & Black Soot ink. I adhered it to black card stock for my border to the great printed papers from Graphic 45.

Cosmo Cricket Blackboard flowers were used to help bring some dimension to the layout. I then added small Retro punched flowers with bling centers to the Blackboard. I love the Blackboard products. I think they were a great find & I have used over & over again. I cut G45 "buttons" from Buttons Ala Mode paper & adhered to paper disc & placed in corner.

The Fashion Fades letters are Heidi Swapp "She" letters & were originally pink. I painted them with Ranger Pitch Black alcohol ink. The punch edged photo mats are made from the papers used in layout & the Martha Stewart Lattice Arch punch. ( Ohhh I love her punches! )

I cut a large paper embellie & mounted it on black card stock. I then separated some Prima "Say it with Crystals" black flourishes & scattered them about the layout! I really wanted to carry the "dotted" theme in the papers throughout the layout!
I had so much fun with this! I love Graphic 45 papers.. they really inspire!!!
Thanks so much for taking a peek my friends!!!
