Memories from Way Back

Hello Everybody!

It's no secret that I love to scrap.  Generally, I scrap events and pictures within the last few years.  I have lots of pictures and time keeps moving forward so I don't ever run out of things to scrap.  LOL!  Which means that I don't usually go into my old boxes (and boxes) of photos from way back when.  (Though I probably need to but that's another post for another day.)

So at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge the 1st challenge is to scrap about high school, or a high school reunion. Click here for the challenge.  With having a son, holidays, everyday life, my husband-I just hadn't even thought about scrapping about high school or anything as me as a kid.  The photos aren't as plentiful as they are now-and don't get me started on quality!  As I looked through the photos from high school wow-35mm just isn't 5, 10 or 12 megapixels is it?  :)

But the more I thought about this challenge, the more I wanted to do it.  We have to scrap about ourselves (which I do-just present me-not past tense me).

So enough of my talking! Here is my page.  Scroll on down, and I will tell you more!

This is me in the 11th grade.  I had a bunch of band pictures, but not of me.  That year I was the historian for the band, which meant I took pictures of everybody but not that many of me were taken.  So I was quite happy that I found this one.  Although I'm not smiling :( and this scowl probably was plastered to my face a lot-yay for teenage angst ;)

Here's my journaling square.  I did love this outfit.  I bought it at a store called Maurice's at the mall.  In marching band I played bells this year.

1993 was the year.  Written next to it is that this photo was "probably Sept or October page done 10.26.2012 by katy)  I do sign my pages-usually on the back though.  I had to have roasted in that sweater. Hopefully there was a cool breeze!  ;)

Supplies Used:

Cuttlebug embossing folder on blue scrap paper
Picture mat-white cardstock with Distress Stain and Perfect Pearl Mist

Thanks for stopping by!  And thank you Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge for a reflection I probably would not have made otherwise! :)  Until next time my friends...sometimes it's good to look at those 35mm pics from long ago! :)

What a great layout hun. You've got the colours just right to make the picture pop, and it has a real 'weatherworn' look about the whole thing which works superbly. Hugs, Buttons x


Love your attention to details in your journaling and your photograph. Thank you for participating in AFSC!
