As I was looking at the sketch for the card on the Let’s Capture Our Memories blog, their sketch Number 90 for scrapbooking also caught my eye.
Many years ago, when I was 20, I went to China as a “foreign friend” and worked as a volunteer English teacher for one year in a high school. In the middle of that year I had the opportunity to go to the USA during my summer holidays. I spent a few weeks riding Greyhound buses and visiting many of the tourist sights. This was the days of film camera and when I got back to China I had the photos developed. Then they sat in a box for 20 years. This was the layout to get some of them scrapped.
I trimmed the photos square and used the Stampin’ Up corner rounder punch to give them a vintage look. The grey background paper is from a DCWV Neutrals Cardstock Stack, and the paper tags and background paper is from Stampin’ Up, the paper doilies are some cheap ones I picked up at KMart when we were in Australia.
Everything on the page is straight really, I just couldn’t seem to take a straight on picture of it. I’m thankful to the sketch, it feels really good to get these old photos out of the box and onto a page.
