2013 Design Team Challenge # 8: Inspired by the decade I was born!

 

Hey all,

Thank you so much for stopping by!!! Ok, I have to be honest and tell you that out of all of the first set of challenges- this was the one that I couldn't wait to dig into!!!! I had the perfect photos for this challenge too!  The photos are of me in a play I was in back in 1998 (before the Navy!!). I played The Ghost of Christmas Past in the play Scrooge (with a twist).  The director wanted the ghost to dress in 1970's style clothes!!!   I had so much fun researching the 70's! It actually made me miss a time when life seemed so much simpler.  I loved the bright colors, the flowers, the tye-dye, the bubble letters-everything!

Remember Polaroids?  I had to make a photo like the famous Polaroid 1-step camera!!! I cut the frame out with my cutting machine. I love the nostalgic look that it gives to the page!

 

I was born in 1970 so I was on the edge of the late 60's and early 70's as far as style and what was "in" back then! 

Here is the left side of the page:

Here is the right side of the page:

Here are both pages together:

 

Thank you for stopping by!

I hope you enjoyed my "Blast From the Past!"

Shannon

You captured the color and imagery of the seventies . . . I think I still have an old Polaroid camera around her somewhere. Great job.

The early 70's have absolutely been captured here with your psychedelic Tie-dye blocks and Fonts, the smiley face and phrases,and the journaling and photos to show off the style. Polaroid frame perfect! Just made me think about the differences between the early and late 70's...what a difference! On this, you've got this nailed!

Shannon - you really captured the 70s in this layout. Brings me back to my teen years. The title is great. 1970s STYLE. I love those bell bottom pants. What were we thinking. You really nailed it on this one.

Shannon!! I was born in 1970 too! I knew I liked you :) I love your pages too...how lucky that you had perfect current photos to use! Your embellishing and titling are perfect and I love your "polaroid!" How creative! Great job!!

Very fun page - can't miss the 70's style here. The fonts are perfect and your journaling is a hoot. Also really enjoy seeing a different side to you Shannon!
