The 50's Meet the 70's

I love this paper line from Bo Bunny. When I saw it I thought "Oooo, all those early 70's photos."  But the colors I wore then absolutely clashed with these colors.  I found out I was a very, very conservative "flower child."  LOL

When I saw my photos from the Red Album Project up against that explosion of colors I loved it.  I'm all for vintage and heritage layouts having a lot of color.  For me it brings in a sense of realism.  We often look at the "good ole' days" as something simple and colorless.  Not me.  I know my dad lived life full of adventure and excitement.  I like how the color expresses that for me. 

The photos of are my dad with two of his sisters and I think at least two are his older half brothers.  The two children are his nephews.  Lesson I learned:  make sure if you are making an educate "guess" at names that you have a back up piece of the element you used for journaling.  I thought the baby my Aunt Helen was holding was Dad's younger brother, but actually it's Aunt Helen's little boy.  Now I've got to go in and change it.

Inspired by Bo Bunny May Sketch Challenge.  The Paper is from Bo Bunny's Flower Child collection.  Rub-on title from Ali Edwards.  

The silver brad is from Bo Bunny, and the paisley/ladybug brads are from K&Co.  The following are all part of Tim Holtz's lines:  card letters, grungeboard flourish and numbers; new Spring Distress Ink Peacock Feathers ; clock face and picket fence paint dabbers.
