Welcome to the MAY 2019 THE VINTAGE ROMANTIC challenge. 

This month I am featuring another of my new Heritage collections: SANTA FE TRAIL

The Santa Fe trail began primarily as a trade route. Mexico had just gained independence from Spain and the inhabitants of the southwest were anxious for trade with Americans, and vice versa. Pioneering settlers also followed the trail, adding to the populations of Texas, Colorado, future Arizona & New Mexico and California.

Here is a link that tells more about the trail, from the National Park Service: https://www.nps.gov/safe/index.htm

Here is a link from the Santa Fe Trail Organization: https://www.santafetrail.org/the-trail/history/history-of-the-sft/

If you have Southwestern Native American heritage you will find these links at the Library of Congress worthy of review: Edward S. Curtis Photograph Collection: https://www.loc.gov/collections/edward-s-curtis/

This collection, in a palette of southwestern hues, is complete with the requisit flowers, foliage and frames PLUS many embellishments to complete heritage pages: antique Conestoga wagon, storage barrel, revolver, chest, horse, pottery of native Americans of the region, wagon wheel, vintage shoes, food stuffs of the region and lots lots more.

Santa Fe Trail, by ADB Designs, was the Heritage Club Collection in February 2019.

Here is how the challenge works:

1) Click on the Page Starter preview to go to my store and add the FREE Page Starter to your cart. (only free during current month)

2) Create a layout with either a "romantic" or a "vintage/heritage" twist. For your layout use my featured collection OR use ANY MM Designer kit in a similar palette. You may use THE FREE PAGE STARTER but you do NOT have to.  

3) Post your layout here in this thread (please provide credit to the designer, if not me) 


I LOOK FORWARD to having you join me this month!

HUGS!
Diane
