vintage contest winner

Journal Tag Album
"Vintage means comfort to me....its my comfort zone...its memories of days gone by, ancestors, days of simpler times...moms, aunts, grandmas in dresses with aprons, cooking in the kitchen, dads in bib overalls out working on the farm, coming in smelling like the dirt. Vintage is ageless. Priceless ..but mostly its memories."

Renee Guggenmos is the Grand Prize Winner for the 'vintage' contest. Thank you Renee for participating and doing a wonderful job.
This 'vintage' contest was to remind us all about our past, where we come from and the importance of memories gone by. Scrapbooking, crafting, photographs & journaling are just a few ways that we can preserve and keep that 'vintage' feel alive. Renee did a wonderful job presenting her Journal Tag Album and expressing what 'vintage' means to her.
Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in scrapbooking that we forget why we do what we do.
Thanks Renee for reminding us that sometimes getting back to the basics of journaling can keep our cherished designs and creations alive always.
Rennee will be receiving all 3 bundle prizes totally over $350.00

Mary, thank you for your wonderful comment towards Renee'
I don't think I could have said it any better. It is so important to keep our past alive.
Renee does a great job doing just that.
The words she chose to use to describe the word 'vintage' literally told the pages of the journal she made for this entry. So yes, congratulations to Renee'
