Scrapping decades-old photos has its challenges. What was the name of that play? Who is this person? Where was this picture taken? What event was this? You think you’ll remember, but then ten years pass and it all becomes a blur.
The back of the photos are clearly labeled March, 1999. I know they were taken at Mary Baldwin College, and I recognize my daughter as the subject. So I assume this was some event that occurred during Heather’s Junior Dad’s Weekend and make a page. Then I start thinking. I know Heather’s college graduation was one year apart from Mike’s high school graduation. Hmmm, a year before, or a year after?? Quick call to Heather. When did you graduate MBC? 2002. Okay, then you weren’t a junior in 1999? (This is where those math skills came in.) Uh, no.
Take a quick phone-picture of the photos and send to Heather. What event was this? I don’t remember, either. But clearly, it wasn’t Junior Dad’s Weekend.
Alright . . . Luckily I had extra scrapbook paper that matched exactly and some that coordinated very nicely. Snip here, tape there, and voila! It almost looks purposeful:
I found the photos of the actual Junior Dad’s Weekend in the 2000 envelope and made a coordinating page:
The font used here is Lobster Two Bold, cut with Sure Cuts A Lot. The paper is mostly K&Company.
Thought you might like to see how I scrapped some of the same photos for Heather’s album. I made this page soon after the event happened. The purple line is a beaded string I made that matches her beautiful dress:
