Memory Keeping Monday - Flashback to 1980!

Do you document photos of yourself? I'm not the best at including photos of me in our albums but I have been trying to do better because I think it's important for the kids to look back and see photos of their mom too.

I've started a fun project - an album of my life. I don't have a lot of photos of me growing up but I do have a few and plan on documenting what I have. I have a bin in my closet with supplies and photos that I call 'heritage' - they are mostly photos of my grandparents and parents (growing up) but when I was flipping through it the other day I found this photo of me. The first thing that popped into my head was that my dress is poppy parade - and then it went to the Painted Seasons bundle because there's a poppy parade patterned paper in that pack. So out came the retired bundle and this is what I came up with.

My inspiration was this sketch...

I decided because of when the photo was taken, to include some browns and oranges - it's the end of the 70s and those colours were what was trendy back then. I'm quite happy with how it turned out and I had the opportunity to use, what is still, my favourite bundle, even though it is now retired!

I still have some space in my upcoming Painted Seasons Scrapbook class. If you are interested in attending, you can find all the information here.

I was putting some layouts away yesterday and realized that I had just finished off an album - from 2002! I filmed a quick Facebook live flip through yesterday. Here's the replay if you're interested in watching.

Have a creative day.


Shopping List
I've used several items that are now retired: Painted Seasons Bundle (stamp set & patterned paper); Four Seasons framelits and the large numbers framelits.

Doily and gold sequins are things that I had laying around.
