An Old Memory

January 5, 2019

Over the Christmas period I have been doing a little bit of de-cluttering.  I have been going through some of the wardrobes in our home and cleaning out the things that I don’t want.  The top shelf of one wardrobe held a huge collection of picture frames which I no longer have anywhere to display or they have been replaced by newer photos.  So I removed the photos from the frames with the intention of scrapping what I could. This is one of the photos I found.  It brought back happy memories of our time at Kew.  This photo was taken on the front porch and Sarah is wearing her school uniform which helps me date the photo as sometime in 1985.  To show off the photo I used a layout shared by Jacqui Crouch on a Demonstrator only Facebook Page.  I love the way Jacqui uses Designer Series Paper on her layouts.  You can visit her blog here.  So following Jacqui’s idea I added pieces of the Frosted Boutique Specialty Designer Series Paper (just retired) to Early Espresso card which I trimmed down to 11-3/4″ x 11-3/4″ and then to a 12″ x 12″ Very Vanilla page.  I punched Very Vanilla and Blackberry Bliss card using the Everyday Label Punch.  I attached the Very Vanilla punched piece on top of the Blackberry Bliss punched card leaving a little border.  I attached the punched pieces behind to the lower right hand corner of the photo and attached the whole piece to the card front. I used a Journaling pen to write the location and date.  I thought the Designer Series Paper might be too busy, however, I think it works because the photo is black and white. What about you, what do you think?

Bye for now,
