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.
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.
