I made up this little story and collage for the Green Paper Packages Challenge, Miss Mary Hayes. We were supplied with the vintage photographs, and could use them in any way, as long as each of the three images were used in some way. I started with a chipboard backing and attached a vintage linen napkin, the embroidery was so lovely, and the perfect background to this story. I cut Mary's photo with deckle edge scissors and mounted the photo with old style photo corners. The letter I stacked with manila papers cut to size and separated with chipboard for dimension. The locket is a Hallmark ornament, the vintage photo (of Harry) from my own collection. A little sparkle on the cigarette card, a Tim Holtz key with the word, heart, and blue ribbon accents finish it up. Photographing it was the hardest part. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. Enjoy this beautiful day.
