Sweet Child of Mine & ScrapFIT Workout #79

Back again today, with another layout for Get It Scrapped!  I managed to have two come out at the end of October and one at the first of November, so there are a lot of reveals on top of one another!!  :)  The layouts up for today's article are for Old Photos...20 years or more.  And yes, mine are definitely over 20...since I will be 40 in two years (YIKES!!)!





So here is the story for creating my page:  I scanned these two photos that I borrowed from my Mom and have been waiting for a chance to get them scrapped.  The main reason I had not used them yet, was because I could not figure out where I wanted the theme of my page to go.  My Mom is not the type who shares a lot of information, so I am unsure of the stories behind my childhood photos, and it makes it difficult to add journaling.  When I received this assignment, the bell finally went off and I decided to do heritage photos with a more modern twist, using papers that were not considered heritage or vintage.  Once I got started, I loved how the Dear Lizzy papers were working together to create a "baby" themed page and it gave a nice bright look behind photos that were older and aged in color.

Come over to Get It Scrapped! and see how the other CT members tackled the Old Photos assignment!
