Orange Paperie and Purple Pumpkin

Good day to you on this extra-ordinary HOT day here..  I hope things are good at your place..

I have 2 layouts to put up that I have worked on during last week...

The challenge over at ORANGE PAPERIE is to use a vintage photo with non vintage papers..  I looked up the meaning of vintage and it does mean old or mature, from an era past.. So I have used a photo of my Dads farm that I am guessing was taken before the 1950's of our old house and milking sheds and pig sty's.. I have used a mix of Basic Grey papers.

Veradilla.




And I liked the look of the sketch over at PURPLE PUMPKIN created by Kylie and I used it like this..

and my layout...

Hannah and Bess..


Thanks so much for dropping in and thank you to those who take a moment to leave a little comment too...

  6. well, you know me Lizzie...I'm gonna prefer the non- purple one, aren't I...but I must admit, that colouring does work really well for the OP site.....& I do ADORE that white masking [???] at least, I think it is, in the bg....my heart is on the blue one, though....you have ROCKED our PP sketch & totally made it sing. I can hear it! Truly [winks] - 100% LOOOOOVE it:):)
