My friend Shelly gave me some plastic bags and this packaging was still in one of them. It was too pretty to throw away, so I used it as the background “paper” for my page. It came together fairly quickly since it had so much pattern on it already.
I’m off to pack kits for the National Scrapbooking Day crop @ The Scrapbooking Studio – hope you are doing something to enjoy our national holiday too!

Glitter Girl did a video awhile back about scrapping vintage photos and how to make them look good with newer papers. it inspired me to scrap some old photos, although mine were already in black and white so i didn’t have to think much about matching colors. i did want the papers to have the feel of the time period though, so i used some October Afternoon:
adore: Julia giving a taste to Jeanette. January 1956
doesn’t the background paper remind you of a long-ago kitchen? maybe one from one of your family members? i remember this kitchen, it was painted turquoise which is what inspired me to paint my kitchen turquoise.
M is for memories: Jeanette talking on the phone. love the cowgirl boots!this photo is dated August 1957, and my mom (Joyce, Jeanette’s big sister) and dad got married in June 1957, i wonder if Jeanette is talking to Joyce on the phone?
i have lots more old photos so this will be an ongoing project – what’s one more, right?!

this layout is for Shimelle’s challenge #12: create a page with one photo printed twice. the up and down weather temperatures continue here so i took this photo of lilacs on top of my wool mittens the other morning when i got to work.
the lilacs bloomed and the next week it was 34 degrees so i picked some with my mittens on.
i’m not sure if the large die cut lilac unbalances my design, but i just had to use it. i just love the felt leaves – they cut so easily with my Sizzix die.
there’s lots of gorgeous layouts over on Shimelle’s blog – go take a look if you have a
minute day or two!
