Mother - scrapbook page

6:20:00 PM Venus and Luanne @ Sisters Craft Cafe 6 Comments

Hello to all! Hope you day is well and good. I'm sharing not a card, but a scrapbook page that I made years ago, maybe around 2004. I made it during the time when I was just keeping momentos, and not blogging about them, because I was poor on web stuff then - no laptop, no PC, poor access to internet.

The subject of this page is my mom, with here photos taken during her teens-tweens. See the dresses of the 70's?

I don't remember following some sort of a sketch for this layout. LOL! I guess my favorite technique back then was paper tearing.
This is an 8"x11" page which I keep in a clear book file with a plastic cover. It's a convenient way for me to keep pages because I live in a TERMITE country. LOL!

THE TAG

I made a tag and embellished it with stickers by All About Scrapbooking, a trim, a ribbon, and a lace. All About Scrapbooking is a local brand of scrapbooking supplies. Way back then, I didn't have access to the popular brands that we know and love today.

Here, you'll see more stickers of vintage images.

I love this fabric flower. I bought a bunch of this on sale from a fabric store.I guess they put it on sale because the fabric turned yellow. The lace trim at the back was something from a discarded piece of old lace that I found in a thrift shop- the owner just gave it to me.
