PKS Challenge 21

Project can be in any format (with the exception of digital art, hybrid projects are totally ok!)
Must contain a vintage item or be inspired by something vintage. The vintage item(s) can be a postcard, old love letter (I love those), an old button, an aged photo – whatever peaks your interest!
Must contain at least one stamped image

Stamps: PK-859 Christmas Greeting Words (Very and Joyful)
Paper: Creative Imaginations (Let's Bake and Samantha Walker)
Spellbinders: Labels Eight
Martha Stewart Punch

This layout was very hard take a picture of and it looks much better than it shows.
I wish I could find a picture of my Great Aunt Lydia and when I do I will add it to the layout.
The label with the typing on it explains how as a child myself and my siblings loved my Great Aunt Lydia's buns and we always wanted her to make them for every family function. That was the first question we asked on our way to Grandma's house. We wanted her recipe and she would not give it away and one day I received a letter from her and she had sent the above recipe from the back of a yeast package and stated that is basically how she made them. I never did try the recipe as I want to remember how yummy her homemade buns were!
