Anyone who knows me can tell you that I don't "do" vintage. I'm not into the distressed, aged, or otherwise heritage look. I never liked Shabby Chic; 7 Gypsies just doesn't do it for me; and, while I think he's very talented, Tim Holtz simply isn't my style. All of that being said, I kind of surprised myself with this layout. I made it for a contest that Becky Fleck was having over at Page Maps, using one of her sketches. While I didn't win the contest, I did create what has quickly become one of my most favorite layouts. I hope you are inspired by this layout to create your own special memory of when you were very little.
