Buttons and bows and furbelows!

Hello,  we're back!  
It's wonderful to be back into the swing of things at MMM after having a months break.
 Val is our host  for the month of September and she has chosen VINTAGE as her theme
 For the first week Val would like us to display
 VINTAGE FASHION.
Here's mine..I struggle with vintage! no idea why, cos I love it... so all this month I am going to be really challenged! lol
The main image is Lady Jude from Kaiser Craft stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia. the lace stamps are from CB and the little doily is from Dark Room Door all stamped onto DP from Craftwork Cards Shabby Vintage with Di Stormy Clouds.
This lovely little badge was a freebie form Crafty Individuals. It was quite difficult getting the pin off the back... nearly ruined the badge!







A dress form cut out from a digi download designed by the fabulous Ceremony, link on side bar.


I bought this gorgeous little charm which has been rubbed over with blue Stazon from my favourite crafty place the Cubby Hole.
The hair grip is from Home and Bargain!
All other odds and ends from stash.





By the way this 8x8 card started life as a tag! a  Tag (Shabby tag by Crafty Individuals) but it didn't look quite right.. :o)

I'm looking forward to seeing your fashionable creations and will visit as many as possible before I leave for France on Friday to visit my friends Jean and Bill ... much red wine, food, fun and laughter !  so I may not get to you all.
 Thank you for visiting me here in the "Making Room " the name given by my grandaughter when she struggled to describe my craft place, she also said it was very messy!.. good job she can't see it now... she'd think a bomb had gone of!
take care

This is gorgeous Sue! I love the main image and the pretty CI badge. I have a couple of those somewhere and they are so pretty so thanks for the idea on how to use them. The embellishments you've chosen are really pretty and that little hairgrip was a great find.

I've had no blog hopping time for a while so I'm having a mega catch up. It's lovely seeing all the fab makes I'd missed.

Hope the sun is shining for you as it is here. I'm off to a wedding this afternoon and the forecast is good which is lovely for the couple :D.

Hugs
