May's Kraft It Up challenge

One of the blogs I check out each month and always mean to play along with is Kraft It up.  I've linked it in previous challenge posts.  This month I actually got around to making a layout.  Kraft It Up's May challenge is to create a 'vintage inspired layout'.

I had a black and white photo to use on my layout. A picture of my Dad from many years ago.
The packaging from the Prima alpha sets feels vintagey to me. 

I layered patterned paper, fabric filmstrip pieces, washi tape and some Prima under and around my photo. The square bradsand the little dots are Kaiser bling.

I have a million and one different alphabets, but ended up hand printing my title after trying half of them and not finding the "right" one.
I used some "almost" vintage products on this page. Remember when those plastic slides were popular? I discovered they are very easy to cut with scissors.
The carnival stamp I boughtages ago because it was unique and I loved it. I wondered what projects I'd use it on.  It has worked on a couple of my kids layouts and now this one.

Lots of layers always creates great texture and interest.

So that's my challenge entry!

Check out the Kraft It Up blog to see what others have done with the challenge and enter your own layout if you're up for it.
