Scrapping some more old photos

Look at this - I did a 8½x11 layout!! Mainly because these photos are so tiny. They were taken in 1986 on my first camera - a crappy lilac one. You know those long rectangular shaped 80s cameras that took the funny film cartridges that were shaped liked this o_o ? Do you like my title? Now go and count the number of people actually in the photo. SEVEN! Do'h! I should have counted before I did the title! There are my 3 sisters and I with our 4 cousins - all the same ages as us. So yes, there SHOULD be eight in the stack! lol So I did a little note under the title. :) I do love those photos. I love Charlotte's pose in the second photo.Isn't this a cool photo? I love the old car. My mum is one of the twins in the middle (I can't tell which is which in this photo). I emailed the photo to mum and used her response as my journalling. Thanks Mardi for some of the goodies on this layout!

I love how you combine colours and scrap old photos! These layouts are great. It was you who inspired me to pull out photos of our first house and scrap them for the last Designing Memories Kit!
