Old forgotten photos

I wonder how many of us stumble on photos we took a few years ago but forgot to make use of?  As we snap away using digi cameras (I think we have 4 in the house) phones and tablets these memories are recorded visually, but not in any other way.  I think we could be in danger of finding pictures years hence, having no idea what the occasion was or who was in them.
I had a look through my phone yesterday for a few pictures I took last week in town.  Being nearly 10 years old it's not the best quality (yes, I know... a camera phone ten years old!!!!) but it does the job when I have nothing else with me.

I did find the images, along with these I took at the NEC of my boy when he was still shorter than me!   Luckily I could remember the when and where, and used the idea of lost pictures as my central theme for the journalling.

The papers are Studio Calico and Graphic 45, a few stamps dotted about and a bit of festive Baker's twine  added using my new fave tool the Tiny Attacher.

So if you have some old pictures gathering digital dust somewhere, go on, sort them and print the best...while you can still remember the occasion!

A terrific scrap page - the newsprint paper makes a great background to the forgotten photographs. Elizabeth xx
