Winner and Brand New Challenge with a Vintaged Twist!

Well, we are already to begin the third challenge here at Busy Little Hands...can you believe how time has flown by! I am pleased to announce our winner this week. She created this natural lay out with some very precious pictures of her "boys".

Congratulations Laura of Crafty Little Woman!

Please pick up your winners button on the side bar of my blog.

Just a little note about Laura's project, if you notice the cute heart and would like to know how she did it...she has a great little tutorial on her blog. It reminds me of a Scandanavian Heart that we make from paper. However, Laura's little heart is a very simple technique with ribbon.  So cute and a great embellishment!

Now for our next challenge I've come up with something sure to offer lots of variety. Create a project using a Vintaged Image.

Here is my sample project for this week:

The frame and the embellishment on the lower left corner are one print. Todd purchased an amazing book for me recently full of vintaged labels with an amazing variety of styles. The book came with a disc and full rights to reprint all the images! AMAZING FIND!

What can you find to use on your project? A photograph, old post card, vintage style stamp or something as simple as what I did...a vintage print; whatever you choose enjoy the experience.

Please be sure to have your project loaded by Wenesday, January 27th at 8:00 PM EST.
