The jouranling reads:
"Mom's purse always matched her outfits, even if it was just a trip to the corner store. She loves fashion! 2009 "
The reason I went ahead and posted this layout, is because I wanted to show all the different items you can use on a layout. Here's a list of unusual items just off of this one:
The blue ring around the button on the top left is actually an earring. So is the green rectangle on the top right.
The metal/ black scroll piece (I chose it because it reminded me of the peacock feather) is really a removable shoe decoration.
This is a real feather, that I have had for YEARS waiting to use, now I just have to find a way to use the other 6, and I chose it for this layout because of the colors and the "feather" design on the pattern paper.
Applique clothing patch:
This is the small white heart on the "celebrate" arrow.
Cloth Rick Rack:
Both the tiny black rick rack on the tag, and the larger rick rack on the "Celebrate" arrow were from my sewing supplies.
Also from my sewing supplies.
Men's shirt snaps:
These are the black circle embellishments that are located on the brown stripe, and the maroon circle.
Bow, and flower rosette:
Both of these items were from my sewing goodies.
It's located near the top of the photo on the right, and the jewels were already on it.
This is located on the left side of the photo. This is also from my sewing stash, there is no telling how long I have had this tiny piece, and just this little scrap was all I had of it.
Well that's all for this layout, but you can bet, I'll be adding more unexpected goodies to another layout soon! I've been doing this for years, and it's a great adventure trying to find new goodies, that you wouldn't expect to see on a layout. Love Penny
