I saw this packaging, not artsy, but I loved the circles, the line and the writing beneath. Definitely not artsy, but well balanced and fun. With an entire page of photos of the Red Album (check the tab above marked "Red Album Project" for more information) I decided to be inspired by a package of Healthy Choice Tortellini! LOL
Dad did not document this album as well as some of his other albums so I'm having to "guess-ta-mate" some of the dates. The album is between 1954-1958. I knew dad was stationed in Okinawa during this time period, but there are other photos in this particular album that say "Japan" on the back. These photos had nothing on the back of them. Well, I guess-ta-mated Japan 1954. I got one right and one wrong. It is Japan, but it is 1956.
Dad's journal has a log on year, month, and place of event section that I totally forgot about. Listed for 1956 between October and December is a note "T.D.Y. School in Japan." Tada! The photos are from Japan but the date is wrong.
Click the photo of the whole layout and you can see more of the sewing detail that I love at the top left corner.

Fun Side Note
If you are a Fiskateer, Cheryl Waters, Lead Fiskateer, is hosting a Mixed Media Madness On-line Event tomorrow. My understanding it involves tutorials and challenges. Cheryl is one of the most outstanding mix-media artists in the craft industry. If you can be there I would highly recommend it. If you are not a member of Fiskateers (a community of crafters hosted by Fiskars) it is easy to sign up at http://www.fiskateers.com/ .
