2010 Layout Challenge #11

The last time I was at my in-laws place, I saw this photo of me and my not-yet hubby in one of those folding frames they give you when you get your portrait done like this. I had totally forgotten that we had done this! It was the summer of 1998, I had just graduated from UBC and moved back home to Williams Lake to explore my options, and one of my friends came up to visit from Vancouver. Jason and I decided to take her out to Barkerville, and this was one thing we did. I think we look pretty cute, especially Jason! Mmmhmmm, he would've made a cute cowboy! I wanted to use a song title for my page title, and it took forever to think of one, but one night I was listening to Prime Country (not my favourite, but Jason's going through some sort of country phase) and this song came on. It's by Tim McGraw, and it's all about how things were "back when". The lyrics are pretty funny, actually! As for journalling, I think I will write on some tags and stick them in behind the left side of the photo.

Supplies (all CTMH): Grace Level 2 paper pack, Exclusive Inks marker and stamp pad in Cocoa, Tender Tags, The Works Alphabet, and Felicity My Acrylix stamp sets, pewter brads, White Daisy embossing powder, Reflections book

Other: Versamark ink, lace from Prima

  1. The Grace paper goes very well with this type of pic. I love the lace!
    My brothers and I had one of these done when we were kids for my Mom for Christmas. It was lots of fun to get all dressed up!

  2. What a great layout! Love the way the Grace pp gives it a 'nostalgic' look! I have been to Barkerville a few times. In fact, my oldest brother who lives in Quesnel, used to be a stage coach driver there! Beautiful area! Good job!

  3. I have always wanted to get one of those photos done but still haven't. Great layout!

  4. Nice layout, I like how you added the lace!
