Channeling my inner Kim

I took these pictures the other day of my kids playing Robin Hood in the back yard and when I saw them I knew I wanted  the photos to have an antique feel. When it comes to this style, nobody does it like my friend Kim Jeffress, so for this layout I used her techniques for inspiration.

When I was in Australia with her, I remember her telling me she never uses a ruler, so the first thing I did was put away my ruler. I then went through my stash and pulled out a variety of paper and embellishments that I thought went well together.
I included things that Kim usually has in her signature style, like Whimsy pins, raw chipboard,ribbon, buttons and pearls. Actually some of the things she sent me :)

Then I pulled it together and added just a POP of red to play up the photos

Lastly a splatter of smootch to give it that artistic touch.
Thanks Kim and congrats on making the basic grey team. You are Fab, and I am totally missin yah!!
