stil inspired by my stash

As I was going through my paper pads and deciding which should stay or go, I rediscovered Retro from WRMK.  Almost everything on the layout is from that pad except a few of the brads and the lace.  Even the cb letters and letter stickers are from WRMK.  I knew there was a reason that I bought that the price 6.99  at Ross. I have already mentioned my weakness for patterned paper pads!
 I inked the edges of the layout and to create the border I cut the patterned paper.  I haven't used hexagons on any of my layouts yet so this was a great way to try them out. 
 The lace was on clearance from M's, Recollection's  lace on a roll with adhesive only .79 cents. Score! The brads are MMe (my new favorite and not so secret crush)
 For Snow Play I used Fancy Pants as the base and various other pps.  I mixed up old and new using my new BG wooden these! The CB letters are Heidi Grace.
 A closer look at the border: snowflakes are MM, brads MME and the wooden buttons are BG.  I am not sure who made the felt snowflake border.
I love this journaling tag from BG, to  help bring out the red in the layout I colored the tag red with my favorite colored pencils and then I inked the edges.  As I always say "When  in doubt, ink it out!"
