A layout from the Past

Every now and again I like to share a layout that I made when I first started scrapbooking.  It is fun to look back at what we got up to prior to having a Cricut or Cuttlebug.  Before we had a myriad of card stock patterned and plain.

This layout uses 3 pieces of card stock and I remember taking the photos to my local scrapbook shop and matching the colours to the sunset in the photos!  It might be better to still do that as I never seem to have quite the right shade of Bazil do you ;-) !

No lettering cut out by a gadget just little old me stamping and stitching - I definitely had never heard of a Distress Ink when I made this.  I remember buying the pretty sequins though!  They came in little containers that looked like eyeshadow pots and called to me and too most of my pals 'buy me!!!! - look how pretty I am packaged you really do need me!!!!!'

This layout didn't take long for the matting and layering but the hand sewing and stitching of all the sequins took me from sunrise until Gibraltar Sunset!!!!

Hope you enjoyed this little snapshot of Scrapbooking from the Scrapbooking Past!
