Going back to 1934

 First.... Some happy news! I found out I was spotlighted at Paper Variety! They chose to feature my Puddles card with Stompin' Tobie for their April Showers challenge
I was spotlighted at TPV!
 Yay!!....................AND...... I won the Lollipop Crafts challenge last week so I'll be getting  some stampy goodness from inky impressions

Now Im going to tell you a secret about me.  I am a paper whore. Every CHA I drool and sigh at all the prettiness. BC (you know before child) I would then buy the entire line, use a few of the papers and then it would sit in my paper cupboard til I thought of it again. Now my budget is SO tight it squeaks. I spend now in a year what I used to spend in a month. I rarely get any new stuff that doesnt come from design team gigs.

That being said when I saw the Cosmo Cricket circa 1934 line I HAD to have it. Since I couldnt have it ALL I settled with just buying a few bits and pieces. I bought 3 patterned papers and 1 journal block paper. I pulled it out last night and got my scrap on. Here is what I created....

and there is another layout i have started on my desk using the scraps! ohhhh and there is a card

Im entering the card into the following challenges
Truly Scrumptious (vintage)
Stars and Stamps (layers)
Stamp Insanity (flower power)
Paper Pal Arts (flowers ppa89)
Mami doodles (kraft)
Cupcake Crafts (lots of layers)
Pixie Dust Studio (sentiment)
Paperplay (photo)

Not bad for only a few papers eh?
