Do you have boxes and albums and envelopes full of photos that you took long ago or that you inherited and promised that you would scrap someday?
Well to help you arrive at someday here is a little bit of motivation that might help.
Jon this challenge and scrap those wonderful old photos.


***Please make sure to Allow Public Embedding****

Motivator (aka Twist) for October:

October 7th is the anniversary of the first airing of American Bandstand.

This month is also dedicated by many ethnic groups as the time to celebrate their heritage. Polish-American Heritage, Indigenous Peoples, Leif Erikson not to mention Oktoberfest and Thanksgiving in Canada.

Do you have photos that reveal your family's traditions that have been handed down?
How about traditions that featured dancing?

Do you have pictures of your ancestors at a dance? Old prom photos? Dance contests?

You get the idea.

Whatever you scrap this month will be wonderful!

How bad is this? I couldn't even remember the 'twist' I came up with?

Now I remember. What was I thinking?

Off to see what I can come up with.

After I made this lo I researched the Newspaper. They celebrated their Centennial this year on October 12th and are the largest and oldest Hispanic Paper in the US. I'm still trying to find out what family event this was at and why the paper would be there. Only one is still alive and in her late 90s.

Just found your lovely challenge but happily I have been busy working on my ancestry albums. Take a peek in my gallery if you haven't already. Maybe I will join in next month if you have it again.

This lo is of my grandparents in 1952 (I think!). You can see my aunt in the background, and she looks to be about 2 which would make this 1952.
