~Old Memories, Young Heart~

All the old-timey images are comforting.

I know this, because I'm blessed to have my great aunt's photos.

The black and white kind!

I got this crazy idea for

I love the dots in Cath's Trigger:

Usually black typewriters are all SERIOUS...but this shows a bit of fun.

I'm sure the colors have a practical reason...but I pictured dots and paired them with Basic Grey Lauderdale DP.

I imagine this secretary is creating something colorful in her mind...or remembering the great time she had at the company party over the weekend.

I imagine in her heart...she's in color! ;)
