Days gone by


I saw that Stampin for the Weekend had a new challenge with the above theme. Cool, I thought and decided to enter the layout I finished today. It has that vintage look and even if the image isn't stamped the big flower has lots of swirl stamps on it :)

The picture is actually rather old too, it's from when we shared a cabin with my parents and my sister's family for a weekend in 2002 (yes, it's my mum and dad on the picture) and this particular evening we feasted on fermented herring - the very typical Swedish dish hated by so many for the smell that has a tendency to surround these kinds of events, hehe.
