UKS Feb week2 challenge

This weeks challenge was on a Love theme.
You could choose, person (s), animal, Country or anything 10pts. ( I chose Vintage)
Use 4 different patterned papers 10pts
Use a heart 10pts = 30 bonus pts. + 10 SLO 40pts total.
I had such great fun putting this together. It was sparked from doing the Henry VIII last week.

My papers are all from K&Co, Lifes Journey, Script & Pansy.
The inked pieces in the frame are actually wallpaper as in lining paper. Try this ladies, it runs through the printer a treat. It may not be acid safe etc.. but I only ever use printed copies of photos never orignals. I did my title on it using font Calligrapher.
The top & one side 0f the frame has some vintage lace. The luggage tag is inked & has a clock face from Maya Road. Used postage stamps & script dic def of time.
Inside the frame are images of vintage things along with some costume jewellery I was given & buttons. The centre photo of the pocket watch is actually one of my Great Great Grandfather's watches.

As I was a very tolerant pixie over the last few weeks without heat & hot water, I decided pixie really deserved a reward/treat. So the brand new Basic Grey, Scarlett Letter collection is finding its way to me very soon!!!!!!!
I don't normally jump on the "got to have it" bandwagon but I am so in love with the vintage feel of this paper collection & I am still yearning for the last Cherryarte collections & the rather yummy new ones!!!!!
