Thriftique... The Back Room

I must admit, I enjoyed creating Thriftique.  So much so that it was too hard to let go and do something else, LOL.  I thought perhaps an add-on would be useful (because if one has a lot of heritage photos to scrap, the more tools at hand the better, right?) but it got a little out of hand and became a full kit in its own right...  This one isn't as bright, and the papers are more pattern-y but still aged and distressed.  As I added bits and pieces, it seemed as though these would be things you  might find in the "back room" at a thrift or antique shop - maybe they needed cleaning, or mending.  And then there are some clerical items for running the store - as you can see, my mind goes pretty much where it wants to go and I'm along for the ride ;)

I also realize that not everyone is as fond of distressed and aged and grungy as I am, so there's a set of clean and tidy vintage-y patterned papers, as well:

I also made some borders using elements from both kits - easy way to dress up a page quickly if you are limited for time or have a large project to finish.

Then it seemed logical to bundle all those goodies up - but I didn't want anyone who had already purchased the first Thriftique kit to get left out of the savings, so there are two versions:
Whew!  Still with me?  Because my dear friends have created such lovely examples for you!
