I used Basic Grey papers left over from the October 2009 kit. All I have left are a few pieces, but with my love for anything Basic Grey, I couldn't part with the leftovers. I have no idea what color cardstock was with the original kit, but I used a mustard yellow to bring out the bright spots of color in the long side strip. These are some old pictures from my childhood. I think I was around 10 or 11 at the time. I added the crochet ribbon trim, doily and ticket embellishments from a few odds and ends I have in my stash. Thanks for looking!
