My new treasure...





Isn't she a beauty? A Hemingway, from the 1950's and I am so lucky to have such a beautiful vintage piece in my scrap room. Thank you to a very kind Rosemary for making it possible, it was meant to be.
I have also used it twice on my layouts, I especially love the ease of using this machine, it's manual so your not fighting a machine's margins...LOL. You just line it up and type....hard. It's exactly what I was looking for, I wish I had it a few weeks ago for my ATC's, but I'm sure I'll be using it on future cards.
The eggtician layout - I printed two photos, one colour and one black and white, I cut out the coloured cups from the colour photo and stuck them on the black and white photo. Too lazy to do it in photoshop and then go to Costco to pick up the prints, just print at home and cut....done in five minutes! I applied a small piece of tape the the scallop edge and stuck it on the typewriter paper and fed it through the machine.
The scallop circle in the "food group" layout is also typed, gosh I just love the look of that....the fading of the ink and the not so perfect lined up letter....

That is a gorgeous typewriter! I'm so happy you finally got one! Now, if I could only find mine, which is buried somewhere in the garage.
