Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Trend Watch

Happy holiday Monday my North American friends and welcome to the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge!  It's Trend Watch week and this week's trend is Retro.  Retro is soooo 'in' right now and there are some fabulous designs out there.  I have to say I don't love all of them (flashbacks from childhood) but it wasn't too hard to come up with something for this challenge.

Kim has some great vintage/retro designs and I decided to ink up Perpetual Bliss for the first time.  I absolute LOVE the old phone.  We had a big old black phone rotary dial phone when I was a kid... I remember it quite fondly, it was pretty cool.  However, it was so heavy I think it could have been used as a weapon!

You have until next Sunday, September 9th to play along.  All the details are on the Paper Smooches Sparks blog.  Be sure to check out what the rest of the fabulous DT has come up with!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week!
