{Love My Tapes/Authentique Project Inspiration Fall Blog Hop}

Love My Tapes and Authentique Paper are getting crafty over the next couple of days to bring you tons of inspiration using Love My Tapes and Authentique paper, and the LMT Design Team will be sharing their projects with a Fall Blog Hop!
Here's a layout I made using the "Original Collection"
As soon as I saw the papers and stickers, I thought of these photos of my great Grandpa from 1952. He wore blue jean overalls his entire adult life and always saved a good pair to wear on Sundays. Written on the back of the bottom photo was "Pa in his church clothes" ; )
I added a little piece of washi next to the pocket to look like a Levi tag!
 
Be sure to stop by all these great blogs and leave a comment for a chance to win some Love My Tape goodies. I'm also doing my own giveaway for some washi tape!! Just become a follower of my blog, and leave a comment for your chance to win!
Also, stop by the Authentique Paper blog to find out what the talented members of their Design Team have in store for you today!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
