Remember

Hi all!  Today is a day to remember.  If you live in the US, than this day probably comes with very vivid memories.  I know it does for me.  There is honor in remembering.  The past shapes who we are, both as individuals and as nations.

We remember in our scrapbooking too, that's what scrapbooking is all about.  Maybe not so much in scrapbooking the history of a nation (although you certainly CAN do that!), but we scrapbook our own history, the people and events which have shaped us into who we are.  And I have a layout to share with you!  :)  It uses the fun Sweet Childhood collection from The ScrapCake.


I love the look of vintage children's books that this collection has.  Isn't it fun!  The photos are of my dad as a baby and my Great Grandparents.

Here are the close up's:


I love the look of the stitched lines under the journaling.  I hadn't done it in awhile and thought I needed to.  :)  Actually, I had been redoing some of my labels so I was going through all of my old blog posts and there was lots of things I noticed on a project and thought "Oh, I need to do that again!"  It was inspiring.  So maybe I will get more done soon.  :)

Thanks for stopping in!
Have a wonderful day!!

This layout is wonderful! I love those old black and white photos which you highlighted it on a fantastic way - keeping the feel intact. Hmm... haven't stitched in a while too... that detail photo is definitely tempting - I might take out the sewing machine tomorrow!
