Vintage July Challenge at Scrap it with Attitude

Hi Everyone. Welcome to my blog!
 
Its the beginning of a new month...July....which means new challenges.
 
Design Team member Wendy O'Keefe had set the challenge this month at Scrap it with Attitude.
 
 Create a Vintage/Heritage themed layout.
 The layout doesn't have to have a heritage photo but the layout, card, mixed media etc. needs to be vintage.
 
Here is my take.
{FAMILY}
 
I  am still using up some of my old stash.
This is a very old piece of Basic Grey paper which I still love.
The Family photo didn't have a date but after talking to my Mum & Dad we think it  was taken in about 1949. It is a photo of my Dads Family taken when he was about 14. I love these old photos but sadly with no date and nothing written on the back  we are not sure why or where this photo was taken.  Note to self; Journal on your scrapbooking layouts to record the story and memory.
I don't have many photos of my Dad when he was a young boy so I treasure this one.
 
We would love to see you join in this month and share your layout on our Facebook page.
Some great prizes up for grabs.
 
Thanks for stopping by.

I can see why you love that paper and its perfect for the photo. I'm a bit fond of the tags as embellishments as well.

I left a comment, but I don't think it works when I do it through my email. Anyway I think this is just fabulous, I am a bit of a fan of vintage. Love your colour palette and the flowers and threads and the little family in the corner. What a precious photo. I have a lot of my Mum's photos that unfortunately don't have the details on the back either :(
Love your work

Gorgeous Janice. I still love that Basic Grey range and have a couple of pieces I'm hoarding. Such a special photo and it would be great to have a few more details about the people and the occasion. It reinforces the importance of our hobby. Love your work :)
