Goodbye Norma Jean

Here's my entry for this fortnight's Stampotique challenge which is Vintage. This was a real challenge to me as it's a Stampotique stamps only week. Now I'm sure Mr Stripes would look lovely in lace, but I thought I would go with Amy Wilson Wellenstein's   beautiful Marilyn stamp. So,  I set about making a pin board (What could be more vintage, takes me right back to my mums, with my school paintings :o)
When I was looking through Google images it made me realise just how beautiful Marilyn was - especially when she was just being herself rather than full on glamour. She had a real presence - not just some wannabee celeb, but don't get me started on this one lol.
Lots of photo's and articles care of Mr Google, and apologies to my place mat which has been well and truely pinned.
Check out the Stampotique blog for lots of fab entries, and thanks for looking x
