Fresh Retro

An on-line dictionary defines "Retro" as involving, relating to, or reminiscent of things past, retrospective. And quotes NY Times "As is often the case in retro fashion, historical accuracy is somewhat beside the point."
This is a layout I have done for a challenge to use Stampin'Up! (r) Retro Fresh products.
I was inspired by a layout in Scrapbook, etc magazine 2008 (so in itself it could be called retro - is 6 years too early for Retro?).
I have used Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper/Washi Tape/Designer Journaling Tags.  I have used a circle stamp from Postage Collection Stamp Set.  Also you can see current in-colour markers, Baked Brown Sugar ribbon and Boutique Details buttons.
This photograph of me was taken in 1982 when I visited Hong Kong, and I was just returning from Jumbo Restaurant and was snapped by a professional, the photograph also ended up on a small plate that I still have.
I loved that dress - it was all floaty and feminine and that is what I have tried to replicate with scallops, ribbon and drawn edges.
Thank you for looking and allowing me to get all Retro.
