MyGrafico - Monday Feature LSS - Retor Movie Stamps

Monday Has Rolled around again!

Going to be short and quick today folks, 
as this Navy Wife has a hubby in town!!!
So I am sure you can all understand... 
this woman's needs!

Today I want to share with you our Monday Feature over at
who is the lovely ...
Lindsay's Stamp Stuff -LSS
with her ... 

 I just could not resist mixing this digi stamp set up 
with my new Graphic 45 Wizard of Oz papers.
And for a very BIG change to my world ....
(Remembering, I am a card maker and not a scrapbook girl!)

Keeping somewhat a part of my style, I still managed to vintage it up and went
Somewhere UNDER the rainbow with some great sepia photos!

 Just could not resist doing a two page layout!
I wanted the photo to really be the center of focus with this page so I have paper toiled all the OZ characters up on foam tape to lean into the photo, the wicked witch I have however leaned outwards to have her running away from me.  For Tin Man I have added grey brads to all his 'joints' in his knees, elbows ect and two white to his front chest and he has been toiled up once.  The Lion has been paper toiled up 3 times as I wanted his face and tail to really lift off the page and scarecrow has been toiled up 2 layers and Dorothy the once. For the poppies I have also toiled them up with their focus on the photo, everything 'leans in' to the photo.  
(Yes, I used 4 sheets of this paper but it was soo worth it in the end result!!!)
  Keeping with the movie theme I used the clapperboard digi stamp,
and in Word, used Text boxes to add my text.

 For the 2nd page I used the film strips and the negatives to 
highlight the photos and I kept with the clapperboard for the journaling tag again.
To the filmstrip, I punched holes into the sides and threaded through a lush sexy red ribbon. 

And I will be honest with you all, 
for a girl that does if she is lucky, one scrapbook page a year... 
I am SO HAPPY and so impressed 
with how this turned out! (Even going to frame it and place it on the wall)

 (Click the pic to be taken straight to LSS at MyGrafico)

I think it was a combination of the digi stamps and the paper,
What do you think?
