1st of the Month

Good morning all, 
Well September already.........although the weather here at the moment is making me feel like it's November ! 
So we have a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu, the challenge for us purple team was to use things in our crafty stash that was more than 6 months old. Well where would I start I have enough stash that I have never used that it would last me about 4 lifetimes ha ha. 
I decided to pull out a very old paper pad from Graphic 45 called On the boardwalk, it was discontinued some time ago. 

I did break into a cold sweat when I cut into it but I'm happy to say that passed a few minutes later lol. Here is the card I made....

I used the smallest g45 tag for the front aswell as the paper. Love the vintage feel to these papers and the images on them. 
Hope you like it. Please pop over and see what all my lovely team mates have made. Have a fabulous day, thanks for stopping by again. From the bottom of my heart I thank you xxxx
Big hugs Elaine 

P.s A day of craft today so better get my skates on !
