I found some vintage photos of my Aunt and Dad playing on their toys. I'm not sure the exact date but I do know this picture is from the 1950's.I felt this picture went perfectly with this new paper collection by Graphic 45. They are one of my favorite paper companies to create with. I always feel inspired by their designs.
