Monday, Monday

So this Monday wakes me to insane cold and fog outside. BRRRRR my tootsies, they are a-freezin'.
It also means I have some Bad Girls and Design X goods to share with you all.
This month at Bad Girls the December kit was filled with tons of Graphic45 and vintage goodies.

In keeping with the vintage theme, I used heritage photos in all of my layouts. Be looking for my article in the upcoming Bad Girls newsletter on using heritage photos!
I found this picture in a pile of OLD photos. My Mom estimates it was taken anywhere between 1890 and 1910 and on the back of the photo/postcard is a letter from one of my ancestors describing his hardships and inquiring about the whereabouts of one of his sisters. Pretty amazing really!

This layout has pictures of my Mom and Aunt on their new bikes. My mom said that her sister hated her bike but my mom remembers being so excited to have one.

This layout turned out to be my favorite that I did this month. I found an enormous amount of pictures of my Gram when she was younger. I couldn't believe how happy and light hearted she was in all of these pictures. Totally different Gram than the one I knew. I adored the beautiful Prima flowers in the kit this month. They are gorgeous!

Is that Bad Girls post card not the cutest thing or what. It is the little things like this that make BG kits so much fun. This layout was made in response to Wendy's challenge for the month of December.

For my project this month I made a Welcome to Our Home sign using Graphic 45 papers. I cut out the cute little city buildings and little car and used some Jenni Bowlin crepe ribbon for the trim of the roof.

At The Design Experiment, the challenge this week is to scrap the craziest thing that you have done. I have done more crazy things than I can think of but here is one of my crazier times!

A friend and I went to see a WWF match and ended up getting booted out of the stadium and she landed in jail for reasons I still do not know! Too much beer+ two wild and crazy girls=Crazy Ass Shit!

So that is it for scrappy stuff for today. Enjoy your Monday!
