NSD Your Happy Childhood
Hi! Hope you are having a fun NSD weekend! If you are participating in the Victoria Marie scrapbook challenges, this is the Your Happy Childhood challenge. Your entry must be posted on the Victoria Marie Facebook page on my challenge post for a chance to win the prize. Comments here, while always appreciated, do not qualify for a prize.
Photos from my childhood are particularly precious to me as there are few of them. There have been other times in my life when I haven't captured a photo. If you have this challenge, check out my ebook "No Photo, No Problem." I found this photo when cleaning out my Mother's kitchen for a remodel. I believe it was at age 16 because the other photos with it show me with my first car - a 1980 Ford Pinto. I decided to take this one photo and scrap 16 things I could remember from age 16 - or thereabouts.
For my layout, I've used a curved cut for the background as we were just coming off the 1970's. I wanted some strips of paper to match my striped polo shirt. The 6x6 paper pads are perfect for this. I used the original of this photo. Whenever working with an old photo, I always scan the original so I'm sure to have another copy if needed.
Here's my process video on YouTube:
I used this sketch for the page:
And here is the Silhouette cut file I created for the curved lines. Curved Diagonal Lines You may use it for any personal project.
While you are here, I hope you will take a moment to browse the site and see the classes I have available as well. Hope you are enjoying the scrapbooking weekend!
