December 1964

December 28, 2019

Today’s page showcases a photo taken in our apartment in Waukegan, Michegan, USA in December 1964.  My Dad was stationed there for nearly 12 months by the Navy.  The photo is probably not the best, but you have to take what you can get when it comes to older family photos.  It shows my Mum and Dad, myself and my two sisters and a neighbours little girl, whose Dad I think was also in the Navy and visiting from another country – can’t remember which one!  Anyway I decided to use the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper which I think is still available for purchase.  I attached the Designer Series Paper to the right hand side of a 12″ x 12″ Whisper White page.  I used the Stitched Labels Dies to add stitching to a piece of Mossy Meadow card and also a piece of Cherry Cobbler card.  I attached the Mossy Meadow and Cherry Cobbler card to a piece of Gold Foil and then the page. I cut out the flowers from the Christmastime is Here Designer Series Paper and attached them to Whisper White card and then Early Espresso card.  The photo and what will be my journaling are also attached to Early Espresso card.  I cut the title from Early Espresso card using some old Sizzix Dies in my stash.  (Sorry they are not Stampin’ Up!).

I need to ask my Mum and Dad about the other little girl before I print my journaling onto the Whisper White card.  So here you have another really simple page but one that I love.  I am so happy that my sister shared this photo with me and now I can share it with my children and grandchildren.

Bye for now,

    Was it Waukegan Illinois? They have a naval base there and it’s on Lake Michigan.

      Yes Kate, it was. I forget which street we lived on but it was kind of a main road and our school was on the same street.
