Stamp A Memory February Challenge: is it really?


Today I'm here with the Stamp A Memory challenge for April.  The challenge this month is to scrap a photo that is more than 10 years old.  Given that for most of us, more than 10 years ago was pre-digital photos, this certainly was a challenge!  It was a lovely trip down nostalgia lane looking through my older photos, but in the back of my head I had a little voice saying: "your photos should be more organised" and "you should get your negatives scanned to CD".  I must admit that I am very glad to be a scrapper in the digital photography age!

Anyway, on to the layout.  I chose a photo from 1999 that was taken when my husband Rob (then boyfriend!), sister Amanda and I went to see the Madame Tussaud's Wax Works Exhibition in Sydney.

I used the title 'is it really?' because the wax figures were so life-like that it was spooky.  They even had a wax figure of a room attendant, just to trick the unsuspecting!

I decided to chop up the cardboard folder the photo has been stored in and use the Madame Tussaud's logo on the layout.  It completes the visual triangle of embellishments: the buttons, the logo and the flower brad on the journalling box.

I also completed a second page to this layout because we took a heap of photos. You'll have to come back another day to see that because for now it's "Hasta la Vista, Baby".  Yes, I know - very lame!
