Happy Little Stampers January ATC Challenge

We are back this month for the next HLS ATC Challenge.  This month is vintage.

A few years back my sister sent me some really old family photos.  I instantly thought of these for my vintage ATC's.  This month, I did something a bit different with the group of ATCs.

To make these ATC's, I cut card stock down to size [2½ x 3½], cut the photos and adhered them on to some designer paper adhered to the ATC base.  I sponged and stamped [to vintage them up], and they were done.  Once created, I wanted to actually be able to view these fun ATCs so, I went scrounging in my stamp room, and came up with this perfect shadow box.

 The upper left is my Great Aunt, the horses are from my Great Grandparents relocating to Canada [yep, they moved by horse!], the car is my grandmother's first car and they went on a picnic for a road trip, and finally, the bottom right is my [very young] grandparents.

Finally, a side view. This is now hanging in my bathroom, and I have to say, it looks pretty awesome!

Okay, your turn.  Show us your vintage ATC over at the Happy Little Stampers ATC Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by~

What a great idea, Vicki. I collect old family photos myself so you've given me a great way to showcase them, even use them as family gifts. tfs

I love the way you used the ATCs of the photos and displayed them in the shadow box. This is fantastic!

Oh this is such a beautiful way to preserve memories and display those amazing photos. So good to sometimes make stuff to keep just for yourself, brilliant idea!
