Those Were The Days

It feels really funny to scrap a photo of my Mum taken before I was even born, before Mum was even married in fact!  But that is exactly what I have done with this layout!

Very, very simple layout (not that that means that no shuffling and umming and ahhing went on of course!) where I tried to give it a 1960's feel.  Not sure if I succeeded with that, but the papers go pretty well with the photo, so I am happy!

  1. Wow! Carole, I'm not sure I can keep up with all these AMAZING layouts!!!
    This is so lovely, and what a lovely photo of your Mum, I really like how you have kept it simple. I have done this a lot recently with my layouts, I think it can work really well, as sometimes to much embellishing can really take away from the photo, rather than making it shine!
    I too have just done a layout about my Mum, but a more recent one and am really chuffed with the outcome.
    I also have a lovely black and white one of her as a child, which I hope to scrap this week.
    I also hope to share with you some of my recent layouts with you this week on my blog.
    Really looking forward to tomorrow and more scrapping!
