Blast From The Past

Welcome to Scrap~tures Retro Road Trip blog hop!!
Thanks so much for joining us! We are very excited show you some scrappy projects from the ‘past’ and hope that you gain lots of inspiration and continue to hop with us!!

If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking
place, please go back to Scrap~tures and start the Hop. You won't
want to miss all the inspiration from our team....... or the chance to win a Rak :-)

Here is a layout I did way back in 1999 when I first started scrapbooking.  Look at the sticker sneeze, and the funny shapes, I even used decorative scissors to cut around the pattern paper. 
I have some layouts that I have always wanted to redo and this was one of them so I took this opportunity to see what I could come up with.  I used the April card kit and the original pictures and below is what I came up with.  I think it turned out pretty well.


This blog hop will run from today, April15th  – April 17th.  We will be
drawing for winner on April 18th.

Follow along in our blog hop! Your next stop is Tracy

Great redo! I also started scrapping in 1999 so your pages were incredibly familiar looking to me. LOL! I've redone quite a few pages from those early years.
