Childhood at Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morning folks, well I'm not sure that its a good morning as i'm back at work this morning after my week off so I'm a wee bit grumpy today. Today's project is for our new challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges where our theme is 'Childhood'. As always our lucky winner will receive a fab prize from our generous sponsor Flonzcraft so get those stamps inked up and play along for a chance to win.

I've made an inky background using distress inks and stamps from Indigo Blu. The focal image is from Flonzcraft, I just love this lovely image of Mum reading to her little ones. I've coloured the image with promarkers and dir cut it with nesties.

I've created a border using an Indigo Blu Stamp and also used a sentiment from Indigo Blu. I've added a heart shaped doily, some seam binding flowers, a bow and some pretty pearl pins

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Crafting by designs: anything goes
Crafty Catz: Story book/nursery rhyme
Creative moments: lots of layers
Passion for Promarkers: ribbon/lace or twine
The Ribbon Girls: Add a die cut
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes

If you've got a minute do pop over and check out my teamies beautiful projects, they are such a lovely talented bunch of ladies.I'd better get my skates on and go earn some pennies, have a lovely day and thanks for popping by today.
