The Scraps of Color Blog Hop

Thanks for joining in on the Scraps of Color Heritage Blog Hop! I, along with some talented crafters, have teamed up to bring you our memories and our history crafted with paper. Of course, a blog hop isn’t complete without blog candy and we have something nice awaiting a new crafter!! To be eligible, you must comment on all the blogs by Tuesday, March 8th-- from all who are eligible, one lucky reader will be randomly drawn next Friday.

Now that we have the guidelines straightened out, let's get hopping! I have a layout for this hop, and I'm excited because its the first one I've posted here on the blog! 

This photograph is so precious to me because it is one of the few heritage photographs in my family! The little girls in the photo are my aunts Carolyn (right, at age 6) and Kaye (left, at age 5). The expressions on their faces totally shows their personalities, even then. And I love the neighbor's car parked in the background!! 

Striped PP and Cardstock: Chatterbox, Powder Room
A closer look...The flower, pin, and embellished corners
 were all finds at Archivers. Ribbon: JoAnn's Fabrics
Ink: Ranger Inks

The title was done with a Creating Keepsakes font CD,
the framing around the photo is a rub-on. (I rubbed the trim onto
a clear plastic, so it wouldn't be on the photo itself.)

This LO was my first try at the whole collage thing!I hope you've enjoyed viewing this LO as much as I enjoyed sharing it with all of you! And this is only the beginning of all the fun!
