Papermaze DT - September PT II

Here is my second post for this month on the Papermaze Blog.

Good morning and welcome to another post, featuring the wonderful papers from the Love, Elsie product line - which came out at the beginning of 2007.

Today's layout features a combination of old and new, showing that it can be so much fun to breathe some new life into some older papers.

Let's start with the new, as I sprayed a generous helping of various Cosmic Shimmer mists onto a piece of white cardstock, and also onto the flip side of the Forrest Ranger paper. On the screen it looks kind of cream but in reality it is BRIGHT yellow and would have taken the focus away from the photographs.

After the mists dried, I started layering my papers, added the pictures and highlighted one of them with a metal tag frame.
A few fussy cuts from the paper and a random arrangements of pearls, blingbrads and buttons and the layout was finished.

So, what do you think? Do these papers really look THAT old? I think they are still as awesome and fun to work with as they were in 2007.

If you have some papers left in you stash from that year, show me what you do with them - I'd love to see!
