Pappy played Soccer?!

Hi there, how's it going?

As promised I'm here with a scrapbook layout today as I've been trying to join in a few of the challenges over on the Two Scrapbook Friends forum. Shelby posted a a challenge last week to create a layout using 'Itty Bitty Pic's" no larger than 3"x3", so last night I finally got down to business.

Here goes................

Now, there's a story behind the LO and a story behind the photograph.....which shall we start with? The photo I think.

This photograph arrived in the mail a few weeks ago from my father-in-law, as a little quiz shall we say, for our girls. As you can see it was taken a fair few years ago (50 to be precise!) and shows a few of the family in their......ahem....younger days. The question was 'Can you find Pappy?'

As the title suggests, I think their first question was "Pappy played soccer?!", closely followed by "Where's his moustache?"

Joking aside, I love these old photo's as I don't have many of them, and this one even shows a Great Uncle and Great Grandfather who are sadly no longer with us. Although I'm no expert at vintage layouts, I'm hoping I've done a decent enough job.

Now onto the challenge - ''Itty Bitty Pic's".....well I guess you could say I took a few liberties!

When I sat down to craft last night, I realized I didn't have enough small photo's printed for what I wanted to do, so I attacked one with my trimmer instead! At least they're all 2"x2"!

Here's a few more close-ups before I leave.

A nice little tag cut using my new 'Slice' .......did I mention I had a 'Slice' for my Birthday (ssshhhh it's not my Birthday till next week!)

Found this perfect 'Family' plate, which I've had forever, hiding in my stash.

Another cute tab to hold the date, again cut using my new 'Slice', which I will share deets about once I officially receive it!

I guess I should mention before I go that papers are a mixture from Graphic 45 and Prima.

Well that's it from me, so enjoy your day and I'll see what I can come up with next......I have no clue really, but I'm sure I'll find something.
Take care



Jayne - you have just become an expert on vintage layouts!! This one is simply gorgeous! AND congrats on almost receiving your new play toy! I look forward to seeing lots more uses of it.



But it's soooooo fabby I guess I'll let you away with it. I love the layout of this and, the great story that goes with it.


You've done a fabulous job with this Jayne! Brilliant LO and I love the story behind the photo. Look forward to seeing more of your LOs and I might be tempted to do some myself!

I just love the design Jayne, the special details and the way you interpreted the challenge!


Jayne this is a a wonderful take on this sketch! I love the colour combo and the whole story behind the page. Very vintage without being flowery! So well done!
