Hi ladies this challenge is fun. And no expense for mailing just post here.

All you do is find an old vintage picture from the 1970s or before of a friend or family member and do a layout or something else using the picture. It has to be something you made within the month of challenge. You can join anytime within the month of challenge.



***Please make sure to Allow Public Embedded***


Twist **** Since it is 4th of July this month I think a page about the 4th or anything patriotic would be nice. Or a serviceman or places you go in July.*****

If you are not able or want to do the twist..it is fine. :):)


We will then vote on or after Aug 1st for a winner. Good Luck and look forward to seeing all the creations....

I am filling in for dear Martica because she started a new job that she loves & she is having a hard time adjusting & not sleeping so she is so tired. She will be back when she feels up to it.

Here is mine. I think the photo is from 1943 or 1942 of my grandparent's wedding. We make the flowers.

I'm very sad to say that we now include pics of my childhood in this challenge. What's up with that?!

Anywayyyyyy...here's my lo with a pic from circa 1975 (using all of the clues and memories I had, I think this was probably taken in February or March 1975).

4H Days By Justowen

The pic is of my bff and I doing a demonstration at 4H days. We did our demonstration on how to put together a sewing basket.

Hello dear friends, I have not been here. Dh is in the hospital since Fri night. Now they are waiting to see if the meds work in 2 days or he has to have surgery. I hope he does not. On Sun..we had a pipe break & I was alone (did not know where the shut off was) (new house)My kids told me where. my neighbor came over & we cleaned up everything together. I have not even thought of a page yet. I have a birthday card to make & a photo tray for a birthday in a few weeks.

Hooray I got mine done. This has been two weeks in the making. Well really the photo and the pp sat on my scrap table for a week before I could get to it...
I am not confident with switching gears from Hawaii to heritage but am very glad to start.

Linda I hope you have had time to get that tray done for your dd. Can't wait to see pix.

Beautiful los here ladies and Linda I know you are right about not wanting to stop now that I am starting again... but like Jenny Heritage will include nearly up to the birth of my children - that's a lot of scrapping I have ahead of me! LOL

I would love to play for August if this challenge will still be going on...I just inherited a TON of old photos of my grandparents & their family from the mid-late 40's that I will be adding to my Heritage Album. Will keep my eyes on the forums for an August thread. : )
