An old photograph

i have been wanting to scrap this old school photo of my sister and me, taken in the early to mid 1970s. When I saw these Basic Grey papers at the crop i attended today, i thought they were perfect! It took lots of time to cut out all the butterflies, but i was really happy with the end result!


The title and journalling are related to the fact that Mum used to make lots of our dresses, i remember these ones well! She must have known it was photo day, as our hair had been put up especially!

It's me on the left by the way!

A wonderful layout Ann as always! The butterflies reminded me of a top I owned in the 70's, lots of swirly colours, long puffed sleeves elasticated at the wrist of course, and probably nylon...it went well with the hot pants lol!
