Circle Journal: My Vintage Bling

So my circle journal is off to the West Coast to meet its first recipient. My theme being "Vintage Bling" I went back and forth about what I wanted to do for my double page layout. I decided to do a boy/girl matching layout using pieces from the Gauche Alchemy red, white and pink mixed media color kits and some vintage ads I found online. The pictures are actually a couple of my family members on hubby's side. I got my scanner hooked up so I scanned them in and printed them out on paper.

All in all, I think they came out pretty well. What do you think?

P.S.-The Ronald Reagan ad with him giving cartons of cigarettes as Christmas presents is too funny!
