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.
