Blast from the Past!

Hi and welcome everyone to the Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop!!!  We had a super fun sketch to work with and the theme for this hop is "Collectors Anonymous".  I'm sure you are like me and have a ton of brads in your stash!  For some reason I don't seem to grab for them when creating and I really need to change that!!  I had a lot of fun with this challenge!!  I knew I wanted to use my cute little Kitschy Kitchen set (LOVE this little set :) ).  Given the theme next I went through my brads and chose these pretty sparkly brads!!  I wanted to try to give the image and old fashioned feel so while deciding on colors I ran accross this dp and thought it was perfect!!   I've also had these little doilies for quote some time.  I fell in love with them when I first saw them but have struggled on what to do with them, so glad I could incorporate one in my card!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!
