A Hippin' Hop Thursday - WELCOME TO MY GRANDPARENTS

Good morning and good day UNITY fans!  Do you love all things vintage as much as I do???  Lately, I have found a love for scrapbooking my grandparents, these are my Dad's parents.  They were the grandparents that we were closest with.  Whenever we went to visit them and sleep over, my grandfather would sneak into our rooms at night and put jujubes under our pillows.  We would look forward to waking up and finding 2 or 3 little candies to munch on before breakfast.  Something only a grandparent can get away with!  It's these little things that I love to remember.  I also remember how IN LOVE they were.  This layout is entitled "With You".


I love these postage frames by Tattered Angels!!!  I love using lots of ribbons and findings too!  So you see those feathers?  It's a feather ribbon that I picked a long long time ago.  Finally found the perfect place for them.


This vintage car was originally white embossed chipboard from Tattered Angels, sprayed with Glimmer Mist and I added some drops of blue Shimmerz for a little something to make it different.  I then went over it with a dark brown chalk ink to make the embossing come through. See the script under the car, that's a UNITY stamp from LeChic set!


Here is my newest favorite UNITY STAMP!  Yay!!!  It's the Vintage Postcard that I stamped onto fabric.  At a antique store, I once picked up a bag of old postage stamps, so I thought I just might slap one on here!


Ahhhh, and my second favorite UNITY STAMP!  This block from a set called Loving & Living.  It's vintage feel is perfect for my latest obsession with scrapping old photos.  And the Tm Holtz film ribbon, do you see it?  I love that product, I think I will use it sparingly though to make it last.


Just in case you want to see the stamps, here they are:
