let's get shabby

"Mum you have always had style" is the title.My mother was a dressmaker so always dressed perfectly for every occasion. Here she is at a wedding
in 1966.
I used maya Rd letters for the title but they aren't as clear on the scan as I'd like them.Because this was a vintage layout I used vintage patterned paper,a paper pattern,3 pins,a ricrac card,ric rac braid and crochet lace.
