Old School Inspiration

There's a fun new challenge over at Paper Issues!
This one is called Old School, and is all about using a black and white photos.  
So what if you don't have an old black and white pic to use?? 
How about a current photo printed in black and white? That works too! 

As soon as I saw this challenge, I knew I had to play along. I have a ton of old family photos, and yep, you guessed it, most of them are black and white. I love scrapping the old pics, and recording the stories from so long ago. I used the brand new Pick Me up collection by Pink Paislee, the colors work so well with the old black and white!



I also used the fabulous Leaves & Laurels cut file that is available for FREE in the Paper Issues store. I used just the top half of the "laurel" to give the photo a framed look.


I also did some hand stitching, a back stitch is so quick and easy to do, it's my go to when I want to add a little texture and color.
