News Flash - Paper Smooches Challenge

The Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge included a trendy retro sketch of a woman on a phone . . . an old phone . . . the kind that plugs into a wall . . . likely had a dial . . . had a cord . . . the kinds from back in the day.  Back in my day!  

Retro always makes me think of my childhood growing up in the sixties, so I decided that the retro televisions would be perfect for the Paper Smooches challenge.  We were that family that waited and watched as everyone else got the color televisions.  (And now I am the family that waits and watches while everyone else moves to flat screen, HD, etc.  My husband is waiting for the television to break.  Hmmm . . .)

A little close up . . . what this doesn't reveal is that the screen has a coating of glossy accents.  The corners were made by folding one inch squares.  I'm loving that screen which appears to have bad, colorful reception.

Products Used:  Bazzill Cardstock, American Crafts Pattern Paper, Paper Smooches Stamps, Close To My Heart Seam Binding, Color Box Ink, Buttons from Stash
