A 'Vintage' Year

Soooo excited to share my first layout for this month's challenge at the *New* 123 Challenge Blog! This month the challenge involves these three criteria:

* Our colour = Black
* Our Word = Year
* Our Technique = Twine Circles

My layout... Yep, that's yours truly! This layout touches on the feeling I'm getting, that time is quietly catching up with me, lol - no longer a 'spring chicken!'

How delicious is that Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm paper?! I've created my own version of twine circles by stitching the '0' in 1980 with metallic twine...

...and roping some mini circles around the number '9'. Rhinestones are enjoying a big revival in my stash at the moment!

Glitter will never be too far away either! Oh these Maggie Holmes glitter alpha's are to die for!!

There are lots of little goodies in this 'journaling' cluster. A tasty Amy Tangerine 'Ready Set Go' Vellum envelope, some tiny Basic Grey tags; Glitz 'Hello Friend' peekaboo and a glimpse of Crate DIY along with a few other tidbits.

Products used: PP: Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Little Yellow Bicycle, Crate DIY, Basic Grey Soleil. Glitz Design Maggie Holmes glitter alphas, Basic Grey stickers and button, Amy Tangerine Vellum envelopes, Pink Paislee phrase stickers and 'Portfolio' ephemera tag. Rhinestones, twine and Silhouette Cameo.

If you have some time, it would be great to have you play along with us. There are stacks of fabulous prizes to be won! You have until 11.59pm Australian Time on 30th March to link our entries
