Lasting Memories-Old Fashioned Photos

Happy Easter! Enjoy your time with your families!

I have a confession to make. My kids think I am "old fashioned". And they love the 70's, which were my teen years. They think the 70's were "old school." Excuse me, but that was just yesterday! LOL

So when the challenge at Lasting Memories this week called for old fashioned pictures I figured a picture from when I was in first grade (1967) was fair game.

Paper:  Pebbles Take Note and Family Ties, Crate Paper On Trend, Bazzill Borders

Butterfly Heart Embellishments: I made these from scraps and Distress Stains and Markers

Tip: This photo is the ONLY picture I have being in the classroom as a student. So I used Scrapbook Adhesives Photo Corners, so that the photo could be removed if necessary.

  5. hahaha Love the picture, so sweet and so 70's, very good layout with all the embellishments in those beautiful colours!

  6. Lovely layout and great tip and shame on the boys for making you out to be old fashion. Just wait till there kids do the same thing

  7. I'll admit! I am way fascinated by the years before I came...I love my parents stories, stories
    of growing up! A different time and different places! There certainly is a way to romanticize
    times before you were there to experience them! LOL!
    Anyways, that just gave me a chuckle today! =) Now if I can only move onto the scrappy page...
    Love the pop of yellow in the pattern paper and the pretty embellies...

    And Happy Easter as well!
