Well, I'm on a mini-vacation this week. My soon to be mother-in-law is visiting us all the way from Idaho this week. So we took a few days off to spend some time with her. Before breakfast this morning, I woke up early to make something a little different. I was inspired by Betsy Veldman's challenge to create something using a vintage item of choice!
I created this card using Cosmo Cricket's Wanted papers and an image from the Little Golden Book titled, Fury Takes the Jump. And yes, it's the real page from the book! I know, I know...you're probably thinking I am crazy, but I found this book at a garage sale for only 25 cents. While most of the pages are in great condition, sadly there were two pages that were torn. Either way, I felt that I would get the most use out of this book by using the images to create something new.
The book is Copyright 1958. Before making this project from the book, I did read the story to my children. It was so funny because the words used in the story are so different from the way we speak nowadays. How the times have changed...sigh!
Well, I hope I've inspired you to rummage a good garage sale or find some vintage things in your attic to create something new. You never know...you may just end up loving something even more with a fresh new purpose!
Thanks for stopping by and for any comments!
